Results of IT BOG votes, Jan 30, 2006
Dear BOG member:
Here are the results of our recent voting.
- For the two new associate editors: 20 yes, 1 abstain.
We welcome new associate editors Tuvi Etzion and Steve McLaughlin
- For Technical Co-Sponsorship of HISC: 21 yes.
Co-Sponsorship is approved.
Location of the third BOG meeting: 15 people preferred Allerton, 6 preferred Chengdu. The ratio of likely attendance was similar. We will hold the third meeting at Allerton, Sept. 27, after dinner.
- For the creation of the online editor position and budget. 16 yes, 1 no, 1 abstain.
The position and budget are approved. However, I would like to acknowledge the concerns expressed by some about the budget. Perhaps some of those who did not vote had similar concerns. I will try to make sure that we are careful in our spending. In any case, after a year or so, we will have a better understanding of the cost/benefit ratio and can re-evaluate the situation, if desired.
Best regards, Dave
