Attending: Kevin N., David Tr., Carlos F., Renee D., Laura J., David M., 
Dave To., Peter H., Joan B-H.

Budget:  Spreadsheet of the pro-forma balance sheet was shown and the 
items explained by David Towers.  It shows that our growth plans require 
that we raise $28.8K by the end of 1995 and $71.8K by March of 1996.  
There was a discussion of what items on the list should be consolidated 
and how the bottom line should be represented.  There will be a line added
to reflect the cost of developing Chebucto-Suite.

POlICY: Regarding illegal and questionable material available via CCN.  
Laura and Hugh will sit on a task group, tentatively called 'sticky 
issues' to develop plans of action for events such as this latest.  They 
will create a terms of reference and invite participation from a few 
promising people.  The first meeting will be on the 30th of May.  Hugh 
will be asked to help us in establishing a relationship with the police 
for situations like this.

PAT Report:  David M. is planning to speak to Dan McKeen on the Dartmouth 
PAT's.  A policy on sites and responsibilities is in the works.  PAT 
support will be an ongoing need.  Future sites will hopefully include The 
Status of Women office and the Black Cultural Ctr.

BUSINESS PLAN:  Kevin has spoken to various team and committee heads 
about updating respective sections of the BP.  He will continue in this 
'champion' role until the BP  is up to date.

Canadian Internet Awards:  Kevin will Nominate David Tr., Chebucto 
Suite, CCN, Dalhousie, and Ecology Action Center.

LIASON WITH GOV'T: David Tr. says there is progress with the city of 
Halifax.  There are people there in the process of training to be IP's.  
Renee is investigating how we can be involved in the WAN project in the 
provincial Gov't. They have a need for accounts for civil servants.  The 
federation should be involved and is planning to meet before the end of June.

Bernie H. posted the letter to the members.  A survey on fees has been 
drafted.  One of the above should include some or all of the budget info.

We should make a deadline for the budget to  be posted for approval.  
The letter should be sent by May 31st with a pointer to the survey.  The 
voting system should be approved in 2 weeks.

Future dates:  Wednesday June 7, and *****TUESDAY***** June 20th.

"All truth progresses through three stages:
- First it is ridiculed...
- then it is violently opposed...
- finally, it is accepted as self evident."
