The regular monthly meeting of the Board of Directors of the Western Pennsylvania Linux Users Group was held on Tuesday, January 6, 2009, at 7:07 PM, at 6374 Morrowfield Avenue in Squirrel Hill, the regular presiding officer being in the chair and the Secretary being present. The minutes of the December 9, 2008 meeting were approved as read.

The Chair reported that he and the Program Committee chair recently visited several potential venues: the West Penn Recreation Center in Polish Hill, and the Brookline, Beechview, and South Side branches of the Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh. He stated that the Brookline library branch looked like a good installfest venue but that overall the Wilkins School Community Center appeared to remain the best venue for General User Meetings.

The Secretary reported that WPLUG currently has 24 members, two of whom signed up at the last GUM.

The Treasurer reported that there is currently $200 cash on hand, and $507.87 in the checking account as of December 26. He indicated that he will investigate Dollar Bank as a possibly more convenient location for WPLUG's accounts.

The Program Committee's report dated January 5, 2009 setting the meeting schedule through August was read. Brian Seklecki reported that he may have hardware available for use as a bootserver for the next installfest.

The Public Relations Committee reported that David Kraus has an unused Grand Central Station telephone number which could be used as a voicemail box for persons wishing to contact WPLUG.

Brian Seklecki moved "that the Public Relations Committee obtain quotes for printing business cards." After debate, the motion was adopted.

Michael Semcheski moved to appoint chairs for all committees. After debate and amendment, the motion was adopted with the following wording: "Resolved, that the Chair contact all committees and request that they designate an individual to serve as committee chair."

The meeting adjourned at 8:17 PM.
