Colin -

Thanks for feeding this back into the LC... of all the weeks for me to
be gone, it sounds like there's a lot to talk about.

Signing off,
Trent

Another alternative I've thought of is that the WG Chairs plus yourself become that committee, since the WG Chairs need to be really getting their skates on regarding WG funding requirements.  Iain's proposal is the only one I recall so far.

Following the email thread regarding Iain's proposal, the BoT support the notion of a more collaborative/sharing of member organisational budgets e.g. if AOL were doing consumer research on usability/UX and Kantara had that need too, that they work together on the questions, share the results, so that costs were zero or at most only incremental ones, for Kantara.  So the implication is that each proposal must be supported by some type of partial/full self-funding proposal.

The BoT noted that the staff are pretty well maxed out in terms of workload and billable hours, actually over their contracted hours which is negatively effecting the budget.  Their suggestion is to restructure the Las Vegas agenda to have a Town Hall style meeting early on on Tuesday.  They want all attending members to hear/know what they can do, how they can help share the work going forward, because if they don't, stuff will fall through the cracks sooner or later - blogging, presentations representing Kantara - everything on the table.  The BoT would like the L/C to consider, hopefully support and run with this idea.
