  1. Annual Report
    • Markus I wrote up the annual report for last year. If everyone could please reiew & update if needed.
    • Some open questions:
      1. How much did we spend on incorporation and other activities?
      2. How much did we collect from members?
    • Bryan I can work on getting those numbers and generate a full report of our spending by looking at our bank account
    • Markus Hallo Welt! is ready to become a member, but wondering about cost of SWIFT transfer vs. Credit Card
      • Bryan It looks like SWIFT international transfers are around $45, we should balance that cost vs. Credit Card percentages (for example, if the total CC transaction fee was 3% for the transaction and, the breakeven point assuming $45 SWIFT fee would be $1,500)
    • Markus I had some issues with becoming an individual member (which stopped me from becoming a enterprise member with Hallo Welt!)
      • Mark This should be fixed now
  2. MWStake Goals & Objectives
    • Eric-Jan What are MWStakes Goals & Objectives for the year?
      • Eric-Jan Should we get MW on the Gartner software list?
        • Bryan PG&E's IT tried to use Gartner's Magic Quadrant against using MW, but it was a very flawed argument since it lists vendors that have "achieved a minimum of $10 million in subscription, license and/or maintenance revenue for calendar year 2013 for the domains listed below", so MW wouldn't be on the list, but individual companies could.
    • Mark Should be create a sub-group to discuss this?
    • Bryan EMWCon this year will be going virtual, the EMWCon page still shows Nashville, but this will be changing
    • Eric-Jan There has been some discussion about "Project Canasta"
      • Eric-Jan Hallo Welt! & Wikibase have worked on something similar
      • Markus Many efforts in the community to do something similar
      • Bryan Some notes about the project on my userpage
    • ACTION ITEMMark I will schedule a meeting for Goals & Objectives
