Minutes of last meeting
Initially, approval of the minutes could not take place because there was
not a quorum present.
Later, Kent moved approval of the minutes and Terry seconded; passed
Alan reported that the donations were up from the previous year but there
were some increased expenses due to Andrew's bonus, insurance charges and
the unusual purchases of equipment. There were no questions.
There was no technical report due to Johnathan's absence.
Review of Town Hall Meetings
Alan and Jeff have attended most of the town hall meetings. At the first
meeting, there were 12 outsiders, 5 at the second and none at the third
and fourth meetings. Everyone made a brief presentation which was
videotaped. Andrew will post them on YouTube. There is probably no point
in having more town hall meetings.

Marilyn moved that we come out of in camera session and that we be

An email was circulated from the Dal Math Department about the smoke
coming from the Dal equipment. They were very happy that CCN averted a
potential fire. The Board is grateful to Johnathan and Andrew for their
diligent and timely actions.
There is still a problem getting equipment installed in the Dalhousie
building. Although we have approval in principle, nobody in the facilities
is prepared to give specific permission. We should find out who gave
permission in principle. Jeff will look into it and maybe Terry can get
more information from John Sherwood.
Marilyn moved adjournment.
Next Meeting: July 21, 6:30 p.m.
