Minutes of the 2005 Annual Meeting of the Members of The Logical Language Group, Inc.

The sixteenth Annual Meeting of the Members of The Logical Language Group, Inc. was called to order on Tue, 15 Nov 2005 13:28:24 PST. It was conducted on the llg-members mailing list.

It should be noted that this meeting was a bit procedurally odd: votes were taken very fast, and by acclamation mostly. This is because we had a legal obligation to get some reports to the Virginia government, and we were running very late.

Roll Call

Roll call was waived, as all members were believed to have valid e-mail addresses on the list. A list of members who actually participated (commented or voted) is as follows:

Officer's Reports

Accepted by acclamation.

The reports from the President and Vice President were be waived, having nothing to report.

Treasurer's Report
------------------

This is an amended copy of my report to the board Tue, 4 Oct 2005.

Main account balance: $2,264.80
Main account balance according to QuickBooks: $2,109.51

Still don't know where the extra $150 came from; should be able to
figure that out next quarter now that I have the documents in
question.

PayPal account balances at $590.63

That means we have a total of:

$2,855.43

In addition, the Treasurer has not missed a single quarterly report
this year.  One quarterly tax filing that was late has been paid for
out-of-pocket ($10).

IF THERE IS NO OBJECTION within a week, i.e. by Tue Nov 22 22:00:00
UTC 2005, the treasurer's report will be taken as accepted by the
membership.


Committee Reports

Accepted by acclamation.

BPFK Report
-----------

We have completed the following checkpoints, representing about a
third of the language:

     * BAI #1, Completed 16 Jun 2005
     * Magic Words #1, Completed 11 Feb 2005.
     * gadri #1, completed 25 Dec 2004 (Christmas present).
     * Letterals #1, completed 17 March 2004.
     * Aspect #1, completed 24 May 2004.

(see http://www.lojban.org/tiki/BPFK+Checkpoints&bl )

We are currently mired in the UI checkpoint, mostly because of
near-total lack of activity on the part of the vast majority of the
commissioners.  We really, really need more active BPFK people, but
those people also need to be pretty skilled Lojbanists.  Ideas very
much welcomed.

IF THERE IS NO OBJECTION within a week, i.e. by Tue Nov 22 22:00:00
UTC 2005, the BPFK committee report will be taken as accepted by the
membership.
