2008Q1 Reports: Unfinished business
1. Poll the membership about switching the membership year to July-June. 2. Priscilla should provide a copy of the procedure that she routinely uses for selecting students for the Walker fund. 3. Kathy McCoy should start a drive for donations to the Walker fund. 4. One should consider holding EACL more frequently. 2011 is a particular example of a year in which no conferences are currently scheduled to be held in Europe. 5. A committee consisting of Owen, Alex, and Drago will reconcile the list of duties on the conference site with the rules that reconcile the existing conflicting policies: one for regular conferences and another for joint conferences with chapters. 6. The secretary will work with the webmaster to create a policy whereby new conferences will benefit from the registration of a domain by the ACL webmaster who will use a consistent registrar over the years and register all new domains for periods of 10 years. 7. A committee that includes Alex, Tsujii, Robert, and Owen will come up with a detailed proposal along these lines. The proposal may be about a new journal and/or changes to the existing journal and conference procedures. 8. The locals will assist the secretary with updating the conference handbook and will provide useful information such as the list of tasks performed by the local committee, organized by position. 9. Su Jian reported on software to remove identifying information from PDF files. Drago needs to track down this software and make it available to future PC chairs.
