Discussion

Bylaws

  • Michele:
    • I’ve taken a brief look at the latest draft, but I have had little time to work on it.
    • Mike Frost is the only person who has expressed interest in joining the policy creation committee.
    • I'm looking to hold vote at the end of June.
  • Scott: Do you have a first meeting date for the committee?
  • Michele: Not yet. Looking at 2 weeks from now.

Grants

  • Scott: Bob told us about an organization called Innoweave that might provide us some funding. We have to fill out an expression of interest form and attend a workshop.

Community Outreach

  • Genevieve: I'm looking at holding a Friday night event for people to lecture and share information. It would be a good way of getting exposure to people in the infosec community.
  • Michele: No harm in trying it and seeing how it turns out. We had a Hackernest meetup in July of last year that had a good turnout.
  • Scott: Pitch the first one as a beta meeting. Get some feedback; see what people like, if there’s anything we want to add, etc.

Infrastructure Problems

  • Genevieve: We had two days of Internet outage. We should be pursuing credit from Telus. This is possibly an insurance claim; we lost sales due to this.
  • Volker: We should at least contact Telus and see what they can do for us.
