AFAICT, this thread is the first correspondence on the parrot-members
list since our last board election/annual meeting in August 2009.
So, perhaps this would be a good time to ask questions like these:
* What are the responsibilities of members of the Parrot Foundation
board of directors?
* What has the current board done since August 2009?
* What, if anything, do we expect the 2010-11 board to do differently
from the 2009-10 board?
(I should add that I think it's fine for us to say, "We have a board
of directors because non-profit corporations are required to have a
board, and during 2009-10 we didn't expect our board members to do
much more than that.")
* Are there area of decision-making that would be the province of the
board that differ from, say, those of our semi-annual-ish online
Thank you very much.
