Just as a reminder to all.
The AMSAT Board meetings at the Symposium are an open meeting, other than a short segment that is a performance review.
You can attend and listen to the entire meeting. There is no attempt to hide the information discussed.
This year's meeting in Atlanta will begin Thursday morning 23 Oct and go into the evening (and sometimes after dinner), then resume Friday morning 24 Oct and go until around noon. The Board would welcome your interest.
The notes from the meeting as well as notes from teleconferences are published in the AMSAT Journal. Barry, WD4ASW (AMSAT Corporate Secretary) has made it a priority to get the mintues published and has provided them to most issues of the Journal since his appointment. The minutes from the 2007 meeting will be in the next AMSAT Journal. While this is not as timely a publishing as many would like, it is one of many, many things Barry is volunteering to do for AMSAT.
We have many things we can use help with. This was discussed at the executive meeting last weekend. We are looking into developing a more efficient system to match assets to projects and needs.
I invite members to attend the AMSAT Board meetings in Oct and to become more involved with AMSAT. Become part of the solution, rather than talk about the problems.
