|Voting for FIRE WG officers|
In January we called for nominations and had a slate but Catherine had a job change delaying her commitment which she confirmed last Saturday for the Vice Chair position. Noreen is the candidate for Secretary and I am a repeat for Chair. I did reach out to Mary Hodder and asked if she wanted to place her name in for a nomination. She declined. We will still accept nominations from WG participants before accepting the ballot as presented and then voting FIRE WG voted to elect the officers as follows:
Catherine Schulten, Vice chair
All present voted Yes.
Jim Kragh requested, via our KEFB representative, Sal, designated funding which was positively received which he will report on so we tailor the scope to promote Kantara and its trust structure'
|ONC Proposal/trust registry.org and MAAS|
From Jim Kragh email:
Tom and Noreen update on an ONC grant initiative which involves https://trustregistry.org which have been revised (thanks Sal, Colin and Tom) and the DRAFT application which Noreen has created from scratch to meet ONC's sole funding requirements.
Here is the link to the draft document:
To reinforce the Kantara-ONC relationship, Kantara is one of a handful of invited entities to participate at their annual meeting by hosting at ONC Summit later this month by hosting a Virtual Booth, (no fee) two days for 5 hours each. The FIRE WG and UMA will represent Kantara.
