It has been 4 years since the last major Chebucto planning and
discussion meeting. A report was delivered by Planning Committee member
Tom Daly. The committee brought forth a recommendation that each board
member to come up with three specific questions they feel would be
most important to ask the Chebucto membership. Board members are asked to

the Chebucto technical committee be authorized to cooperate in a small WiFi

The mail volume has increased by approximately 25% since the last
discussion some months ago. This is due primarily to an increase in spam,
but e-mail viruses have been on the increase as well. Improvements to spam
filtering have been an ongoing task.

supplements supporting Chebucto's 10th anniversary promotional efforts.
Anecdotal evidence suggests that this has helped to raise Chebucto's public
profile. More action is required to build public awareness and increase Chebucto's membership.

Word on the Street festival. We intend to cooperate with HRC@P for WOTS this

effort to submit reports online.
