Link to IAWG Roster

After not achieving 8 of 14 quorum, the group reviewed the IAWG Roster and determined that Dragan Pendić and Ann West should be removed from the voting list per Kantara policies for non-attendance since August 2014 at least.  Andrew Hughes also notified the group that Bill Braithwaite will be unavailable to attend for a number of months, so he will also be placed on non voting status. These changes do not affect their eligibility to participate, and they may return to voting status by  notifying the IAWG Chair of their interest.

As of 2015-01-22, quorum is 6 of 11

Discussion of the Mind Map Tasks

Ken Dagg requests additional input and review of the tasks described in the mind map.

Richard Wilsher (RGW) notes that there was some discussion of prioritization or optimization from last week's meeting.

Andrew Hughes responds that there were minor tweaks but nothing serious.

RGW is concerned that there is a lot on the page, hence the prior comment about prioritization.  Would there be merit in asking the members on the call to identify the top five or six items in the list.  Send them to RGW for consolidation?

Angela Ray responds that prioritizing is a necessity for the big list, getting to a handful of objectives to get meaningful forward motion. Angela's area is not everyone's area of priority.

Ken Dagg replies that is the essence of the procedure described by RGW.  Ken likes the idea and appreciates RGW's volunteering, but he thinks it is incumbent on the leadership team to undertake the tasking.  Ken requests people to send their top three items to Andrew Hughes for discussion next week. If there are tasks missing, please add them and make them a priority.

RGW points out that enough priority selections must be submitted for good coverage of the form.

Action Item for leadership to send out the criteria that came out of last week's meeting, please indicate five items from the list that was put out, if you need further clarification please email Andrew, when sending priority list indicate if it is a +1 or a 0 against the criteria.  Spreadsheet with row sheet and columns. Scott to send Ken a draft tomorrow morning?

Ken asks for additional list items, no response.

Discussion of the Face to Face Opportunity

Andrew asks who is going to be at EIC in Munich, HIMMS Chicago, RSA San Francisco?

Andrew is considering RSA.
