Agenda 7Dec10/Secretary's Report
From Wikimedia UK
Activities to report
- Phone calls
- A number of random calls. One from a donor requesting a refund (passed on to CM and TD).
- Discuss - the phone is now seeing more general use than press use, and its use as a press phone is being succeeded by Gemma. Suggest it might be better for CM to hold the phone and forward enquiries as appropriate to individual board members.
- Event was successful. Over 100 participants. Sessions went well, as did location/catering. Things that could have been better: attendance, administration (e.g. process for dealing with registration fees paid in cash).
- Details of expenditures (still being finalised) are on the internal wiki.
- First part of Liam's contract has now been paid. Second part will be due soon. A number of other invoices need to be paid (location, catering, presenter gifts) plus other expenses (MP, AT, JS, LW).
- Random other things
- Invoice for in-person board meeting room needs to be paid (Tom's doing this already).
