RMOUG Minutes 5-18-2007


A regular meeting of the Board of Directors of the above corporation was held on May 18, 2007 at Denver, CO.

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

Bill Schwartzkopf
Linda Seley
Tim Gorman
Allison Leech
Barbara Lewis
Jeff Meyer
John Peterson

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 Bill Schwartzkopf.
Bill Schwartzkopf reported that he would like to give the RMOUG Admin a cost of living adjustment since Heidi has said that her hourly rate is high enough.

Bill also reported that he is saddened that Tim Gorman will not be on the Board of Directors next year.  The Board can’t quantify all he’s done over the years, but we have a gift certificate to say Thank You.

Bill also reported that COAUG has asked for a vendor list because they are planning a Traiing Day for Oracle Apps in October.  They would like to know how much we charge.  We can provide a contact list and rate sheet from Training Days, but the Board felt COAUG should negotiate their own rates.

B. Report by Allison Leech
Allison Leech reported that everything is ready for the Quarterly Educational Workshop today.  She will find out where the Buffet will be held so we can make an announcement during the general meeting.  We also need to make a formal election of the new board.


  1.  Report by Tim Gorman

Tim Gorman reported that we are close to getting the final wrap-up on numbers for Training Days.  He is planning to have a meeting to both wrap-up Training Days 2007 and launch Training Days 2008.  He will send a notice out to the Training Days committee.

D.  Report by Barbara Lewis
Barbara Lewis reported that everything is all set with Data 393 for the next year.  She has arranged for two additional VPS other than the website.  One is for production for Heidi to use, and the second is a data environment.

Barbara discussed the two servers donated to us from New Mexico.  It turns out that it will be a couple of hundred dollars for us to ship them.  There is a company that buys old equipment for $25 for each server.

E.  Report by Linda Seley
Linda Seley reported that she does not have a treasurer report from the bookkeeper yet.  She checked into the time needed to prepare the non-profit application and estimated that it will take about 90 hours of prep time.  Linda will look at developing an RFP process to find someone who can fill out the non-profit application for a cost not to exceed $1500.

F.  Report by Jeff Meyer
Jeff Meyer reported that the next newsletter will be coming out from mid- to late-July so he can transition it over to the new Newsletter Director.  He will be resigning, but Jon Arnold is interested in taking a Board position.


  1.  The following motion to give the RMOUG administration a 5% cost of living raise was approved by a majority vote of the Board of Directors.


  1. The following motion to approve funds up to $2500 for the purchase of Developer Suite was approved by a majority vote of the Board of Directors.


IV.   NEXT MEETING.  The next meeting of the Board of Directors will be held on June 7th at 4:30 at Data 393.

There being no further business, the meeting was duly adjourned.
