Mitch mentioned that regarding the pay scale of the new hires - they were started at step 4 instead of step 3 as mentioned in the minutes (to be bumped to step 4 in July) but the minutes were fine as is.

Coordinator’s Report: Pat submitted an updated inventory. Some discussion about updating loanable public equipment library and office computers (2007 iMac should be retired). Mitch explained the process of selling old equipment from our inventory. Pat to begin talks with Octoberfest Committee about planning video coverage for 2012. New recording assistants have been trained and are working out great with full government coverage. Pat submitted a package, draft of “Douglas Cable Statement 2012”, a detailing of the Douglas Cable program, operation, management, and goals. This was suggested by Chuck Sherwood as part of the licensing agreement discussion.
Community Room Update: Need to gather information and get back to this at a future meeting. Ideas: (2) Ceiling Microphones, (2) new cameras.
Nexus Tune-up: Instead of replacing fans in the Nexus ourselves, we can send the unit to Nexus for a general tune-up, which includes fan replacement and such for $300.00 plus shipping. We will lose the Nexus for 2 days or so, so we will need to come up with an alternative video source for the channels while it is away.
Membership: Tom Devlin has been sworn in, but Fred Fontaine resigned, so there is still one opening on the Committee.
Other Business: Open session for topics not reasonably anticipated 48 hours in advance of meeting.
