Minutes of the 2009 Annual Meeting of the Members of The Logical Language Group, Inc.

These minutes were approved by the 2010 annual meeting.

The 2009 Annual Meeting of the Members of The Logical Language

Group, Inc. was called to order on Sat, 8 Aug 2009 14:32:19 +0200.

It was conducted on the llg-members mailing list.

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:

  • Mark Shoulson
  • TommyLee Whitlock

Reading of Minutes

At the time, it was believed that the reading of the minutes was waived, in

favour of LLG Members as the canonical listt, by unanimous consent, but

this seems to have only been mentioned, not formally stated. Regardless, the

mention could have been objected to and was not, so we're calling it good.

President's report


Hey folks, Eppcott here with the President's report.

Late last year I received a delivery of several boxes of the Complete

Lojban Language from Lojbab through his relative, and ever since, I

have taken over order fulfillment. Sales are brisk. I am soon to

receive an LLG credit card with which to make shipments, for greater

fiduciary accountability.

The Lojban Festival at Penguicon was exciting and got a lot of people

interested in the language. Robin, Clsn, Pierre, Tene, and Bancus were

among the Lojbanists in attendance, and of course I was there since I

chaired Penguicon.

Last year, I said that if you elected me President of the Board, I

would accept, but not do anything until after I was done chairing

Penguicon. That (and running PodDisc.com, and going back to school)

ate up my life completely until May. I originally intended to have

already begun several initiatives between May and now, which bear a

lot of resemblance to several of the ideas presented recently by

Cosmic Ray. As it turns out, my life has been pretty busy since then

as well. I apologize for that.

Please let me know if you have any questions!

Officer's Reports


Treasurer's Report

The main account balances at $5,664.41

The paypal account balances at $325.34

We lost $10 due to me being late this quarter; I'd pay it out of

pocket, but there's actually no way to do that, the tax board draws

from our account.

The board spent $824.50 on sending people to LogFest. This came

entirely out of the PayPal account; we did not need to touch the

main account for that at all.


Accepted by acclamation.

Committee Reports


BPFK Report and Secretary Report

Neither the secretary nor the BPFK jatna (who take a shower with

each other every morning, as clsn puts it) have anything of

significance to report.


-- snip --

As usual, of you, or anyone you know of, is chomping at the bit to

help the community, the BPFK is the most important thing we need to

do, and we could use the help.



Accepted by acclamation.
