Allen noted that there have been some difficulties posting to email due to the new collaboration system that OASIS has implemented.  He has been working on this issue.   Contact Allen if you are still having problems with email.
This week's agenda was to discuss:
1.  Final comments on the requirements document
2.  Subcommittees
3.  Face-to-face meeting agenda
Requirements Document:
Are there any other comments to the document.  Take comments until end of day and then post to member page.  Will be posted as a draft until TC votes to formalize document.  All members should read and become familiar with document
We have decided on three sub-commitees and their associated chairs.  All members need to determine which sub-commitee they want to join.  Each chair will take a first pass at a statement of purpose and post so that all can review before deciding which subcommittee to join.  At next week's face-to-face meeting, the subcommittees will work to create their own charter, statement of purpose and deliverables.  The three subcommittees agreed to are:
  1. GIS - to be jointly chaired by Eliot Christian and Bill Schroeder
  2. Notifications, Methods and Messages - Art Botterell
  3. Infrastructure - Rick Carlton

The third group was originally called Monitoring and Acquisition but Rick felt that it was not broad enough to address all issues that may relate to infrastructure.  This area should be concerned with the continuum - identify what are the components, how they interact and how they move around.   Decided to float the discussion of the subcommittee name for everyone to review this week - email any issues.

Face-to-Face Agenda

First Allen asked if there other topics we need to discuss at the face-to-face meeting besides working on the subcommittees. 

The meeting will start out focusing on the formal formation of the subcommitee and then have break out sessions to continue to work.  Other areas of discussion for the afternoon include:

Rick also gave a brief description of results of a recent meeting of EM-XML Consortium (Executive Committee and EM TC) members had with Steve Cooper, CIO, DHS.  There is potential for getting budget from Cooper downstream.  Need to draft verification, level exercises and potential budget.  Identify "wires and pliers" needed. Gary added that there is no budget currently available but money will "pop up" at the end of the government's fiscal year and there may be money left to fund a proof of concept (Sept) so we need to have a proposal ready.

Action Items:
