I.  QUORUM.  A quorum was declared present based on the presence of the following Directors:

Also in attendance:
Heidi Kuhn

The following corporate actions were taken by appropriate motions duly made, seconded, and adopted by the majority vote of the Directors entitled to vote (unless a higher voting approval is stated).


A.  Report by Jon Arnold
Jon Arnold reported that he has been having difficulty getting in touch with the hotels in Castle Rock.  He discussed the Days Inn on Quebec, the Centennial Holiday Inn, and the Four Points hotel.  The Four Points is good to work with, but their prices are slightly higher.

Jon would like to get the website updated with the date for the Nov. 16 QEW.  The Board also discussed prices and talked about providing lunch.

For presenters, Jon will call Dan Hotka and George Trujillo.  He would like another call for abstracts to go out tomorrow.  He will have an Installfest or JDeveloper topic ready in case a speaker does not show.

  •  Report by Allison Leech

Allison Leech reported that she hoped to have the newsletter to the publisher by Friday, but it looks like she will be doing the editing over the weekend.  Heidi will work with her on getting invoices out to the advertisers.
