New Directors
New members Donna Garverick and Ron Horner were welcomed to the board.
RESOLVED that the minutes of 13 Mar 2003 be ratified
MPE Licensing
Jeff reported that there has been no change in the MPE licensing plan from HP.
Focus Group
A focus group listserv is being created on Raven without an archive. This is being done at HP's request in hopes that the individuals and companies involved will be willing to talk more freely if the information is less likely to be compromised.
Annual Elections
Four of the the existing board positions are up for reelection. All four of the directors currently holding those seats are running for reelection. Additionally, John Wolff was nominated and has decided to run.
HP seat
There has been some concern expressed both within HP and within the OpenMPE membership that there is a conflict-of-interest problem inherint in having an HP employee on the OpenMPE board. Various ideas were discussed.
In preparation for taking over the OpenMPE web site, Ron did a quick survey of what the directors would like to see on the site.
