  1. Agenda development 
  2. The first order of business was to select a new PC Chair and Vice-Chair. As we have newly elected PC members on the call, Dave and Tom reviewed the duties of the Chair and the Vice-Chair. 

    Dave and Tom are willing to continue. Igor nominated Dave and Tom, seconded by Mike. There were no other nominations. 

    To let the nominations slate marinate, Dave and Tom continued to give background of duties. 

    After 10 minutes of explanation and discussion, the PC was polled for other nominations and objections to the current slate. There were no objections. Dave will continue to be Chair, and Tom will continue to be Vice Chair. 

  3. The PC next discussed a liason to the NANOG-Eng calls. Tom reviewed the duties, and will continue to attend the NANOG-Eng calls. The PC would also like to have a second representative attend the NANOG-Eng calls if possible. 
  4. We discussed a liason to ARIN for the fall NANOG meetings, as planning with ARIN for the fall NANOG 50 meeting will need to start during planning for NANOG 49. Cathy Aronson will be our liason to ARIN. Tom, Dave, and Cathy will schedule a call with ARIN in the following weeks. 
  5. Next, we introduced the PC tools available to PC members, to help produce a quality program. These tools include the NANOG PC tool, and a PC IRC channel. As an initiative to better prepare future NANOG PC members, Dave plans to lead the charge to create a NANOG PC Wiki. Dave and Tom will work with Merit to get a Wiki installed on S1. 
  6. We then discussed NANOG PC call times. The group selected Tuesdays at 1300 Eastern as the agreed upon call time.
