Reviewed the draft of the 2020 CSC Schedule. Discussed a need to convey to the Fellowship that the agenda is stripped down this year in view of the new format.  Linda to work on this.

New Items proposed for the website’s meeting search capacity will cost less than $270. As that falls within the $3500 already approved for these improvements, no further action is needed to start this work.

The Board Treasurer, Salle apprised the Board of some misinformation going around, that PayPal contributions to CoDA, Inc. can be reassigned to some other CoDA entity (e.g., an intergroup). The Treasurer explained that no such redirection of funds donated to CoDA, Inc. is possible.

The Board considered the Voting Entity Item from the UK that did not meet the CSC’s deadline for motions. Nancy will draft a reply.

After this meeting there will be a meeting to review proposed mockups of additional search features for CoDA’s Meeting Database.
