forward. After a short discussion VCON was selected as
host for the 2007 Canvention. Unanimous.
(3) Old Business:
a) Status report on Guidelines and Principles
Dennis Mullin reported that there had been little activity
and that there needed to be a better way of organizing things.
There was a discussion of list servers, digests, groups (open
versus moderated). Lynda Ciaschini and Andrew Guradata volunteered
for a committee to find an inexpensive (preferably free) way
of hosting & organizing an Aurora Guidelines and Principles
Discussion Group. Dennis Mullin volunteered to serve as moderator
if something suitable could be organized.
(4) New Business:
a) discussion of getting an official website.
PrixAuroraAwards.ca is still available. Discussion of cost
and how to pay for it.
b) discussion of setting up a voting registry to allow
people to vote and nominate online.
c) questions regarding various aspects of the awards
and Canvention. Answers provided by Dennis Mullin (basically
a Guidelines and Principles discussion).
