We discussed putting a committee together to put together a plan to try and contact these companies and see if we can get some interest.  The committee is Luke, Brent, Nancy, Marijan and Adam Kujawski.

We still need some IP information for the website, Marijan is going to see if he already has this information.

Governance – No report

Director Agreements and Conflict of Interest – We have most of them back and Nancy will send a reminder for any outstanding forms.

Old / New Business –  

Remote Switch Operator Addendum – We need to schedule a call/meeting with the review committee to try and finalize it.

New Dues for 2019:  Due to few expenses in 2018, we moved to have no new dues for existing members and the same dues for new members.  This was moved and passed.

Next meeting – January 11th – 2:30 at NetGain 8235 Estates Pkwy, Plain City.

Meeting Adjourned.
