Hi Tim,

May I propose that we schedule a board meeting and silver member board
seat election either to happen at ONS, or (ideally) to happen before
ONS, after March 27th? The first item of the agenda would be
introductions, the second would be budget priorities, given available
resources (which by then will be known).

> - LF proposed a $5-20k sliding scale for silver members. That seems reasonable, but we need some details on what that sliding scale is. Presumably there's a model from other LF projects that we can reuse. I'll follow up with Mike to get more details on this.

> - Ed pointed out that even things that seem simple like agreeing quotes for a press release can take a long time.
> - We need to finalise the charter. Can those who are considering becoming members review one last time and we can aim to finalise it at next week's meeting. We do need to be careful not to raise issues that we've discussed and resolved previously.
> - We discussed whether we need to add the next level of detail on membership benefits to the charter. This might include things like specifying how gold and silver members are identified/promoted at DPDK events, further details on lab access/rates for gold and silver members etc. The disadvantages are that firstly these details may take a long time to agree, and secondly that putting this info into the charter constrains what the governing board can and cannot do in future. The consensus was to keep the charter at the current level of detail and leave these details for the governing board to define once it's in place.
> - Agreed that we do need a summary of membership levels, rates and benefits that people can use to explain this to their management when requesting approval. I'll work on a draft before next week's meeting.
