II.  REPORTS.

A.  Report by Debra Addeo.
Debra Addeo reported that she has accepted the position of secretary.  The Board thanked her for volunteering.

 

B.  Report by Barbara Lewis.
Barbara Lewis reported that Debra Addeo will attend IOUG Alive! Conference in since Andrew Bono is unable to attend any similar conference.  RMOUG will reimburse Debra’s registration.

Barabara also reported that the IT side of Solaris 10 has been installed with Data393’s help.  Darl was then able to install Oracle 10g.  Data393 is charging $50 per service for backups, but the format does not work for our servers so Barbara is looking at other alternatives.

Pat Van Buskirk is working on the secure membership page.

Barbara would like to purchase Forms and Reports at $400 per user with a minimum of 5 users.

Barbara also reported that she has received the TD 07 presentations and photos and will post them once she gets time.

Linda Seley reported that as of Jan 17th we had a checking balance of $30,000.29.  There were $202,852.50 worth of receipts, $174,819.77 worth of disbursements for a total of $58.033.02 in checking.  The savings balance is $90.235.03, for a combined balance of $148,268.05.

D.  Report by Allison Leech.
Allison Leech reported that the next Quarterly Educational Workshop will be held May 18, 2007.  She talked about a preference on locations and she will check into the downtown Hyatt, with possible hotels also near Golden, I-70, or Hampden and I-25.

Allison also reported that she has been approached about sharing a speaker database with other User Groups.  IOUG has a database, but so far they do not have any resources to help with individual groups.  Allison wondered how we should approach potential speakers.  It was decided to ask the speakers if they would like to be on a shared information list.

Allison also asked about the speaker contract and wondered where the final copy would be.

Allison will work with Heidi on getting out a Call for Speakers and also the Call for Volunteers to serve on the Board.

E.  Report by Chip Briggs.
Chip Briggs reported that he met with Lisa Cocklin, Mark May, and John Titus for putting together a Southern Chapter.  He is looking at holding a meeting in April.  He would like to have four meetings for the Northern members, four meetings in Denver, and four meetings for the Southern members each year.  They will be evening meetings with one or two speakers.  He would like to have Denise Gardiner establish meetings in Colorado Springs and Rich Baca establish meetings in Fort Collins.  He would like the number of people who attended Training Days from Colorado Springs and Fort Collins, as well as membership numbers.  Heidi can do a sort by zip code for him.

F.  Report by Jeff Meyer.
Jeff Meyer reported that he is looking for articles for the next edition.  He would like them by April 15th.

G.  Report by Peggy King.
Peggy King reported that she needs to open an account for the Stan Yellott Memorial Scholarship.  She would like an oversight committee and was thinking about asking Dan Fink, Elizabeth Boss, Jody Hotsinpiller, and Denice Norby to participate.

Peggy also reported that she needs tow work on getting back in touch with the PeopleSoft User Groups.

Peggy also reported that we had a great volunteer turnout for TD 07.

Peggy and the board discussed tie-dyed t-shirts for a certain contribution amount to the scholarship fund.  For a certain contribution amount of $100 or more, we would give them a shirt.  The Board discussed different ideas on how best to proceed and decided to get more ideas in April.
