Board of directors Meeting;  Aug 16, 1994(c)
Present:  R.Davis, C.Freitas, D.Tower, P.Henry, L.Jantek
Absent:  D.Trueman, J.Brown-Hicks, D.Murdoch, K.Nugent

1.  There was no quorum 

2.  Agenda approved with additions. No minutes

4.  To Do List was reviewed and updated 

5.  D.Towers presented the Treasurers report.

- It was noted that there are no Dalhousie costs represented on our budget 
sheets.  This is an important cost which must begin to be accounted.

- It was mentioned that June 15, 1994 is considered the official start date 
for memberships.

- D.Tower is attempting to fill in the gaps in our budgets but the items 
for which he has no clear figures are:  provincial funding, p.r./launch 
costs, and hardware expenditures.

6.  L.Jantek reported on the status of the board vacancies.  The 
individuals who applied will be contacted.  LJ to follow up on this and 
we will discuss further at the next board meeting.

7.  Peter volunteered to do the demo for the New Brunswick Library 
Association.  LJ will send him details.

8.There was some discussion concerning various i.p.s and any 
responsibility Chebucto has regarding political information on the 
freenet and upcoming elections.

9. Renee presented some ideas concerning a cooperative arrangement with a 
large, non-profit scientific group in Halifax.  There was discusion 
surrounding the idea that in exchange for equipment from the group 
Chebucto would provide file maintainance and support.  Generally the 
board reacted favourably although there are many details for which we 
need more information.  It was thought too that without the technical 
people present it was hard to get a total picture of the impact of this 
proposed cooperative venture.

10.  There was some general discussion surrounding the AGM and what might 
need to be done ahead of time to prepare for it.

11.  Next meeting tentatively set for 25 August at 7:15 at P.Henry's house.
