Chris Heuer's vision is that SMC will be cash-flow positive so that people who put a lot of time in, might get some compensation for that work.  Recognizing that people aren't doing the work for compensation.  The real issue is that Chris can't do it all himself we need more people to do the work.



Boston and Austin seem to be pretty well organized--make sure they are involved.  Share best practices.


Discussion about which non-profit designation is right for us.


There needs to be official charters and chapters.  There are legal and liability concerns.


Jim Turner has previous experience as president of a non-profit


TIE--model of the first chaper in Silicon Valley became the head chapter.  Formality is important. Sanjay from L.A. will share templates from that organziation structure.


Connie Reece ... several of the Austin members also have experience running non-profit organizations ... stepping up to help.


There is a private wiki, message board, etc on JotSpot.  Chris to try to set up logins for people.


Jim Turner: okay let's move onto getting bodies into chairs.


Please reply to SMC e-mail from Chris to make sure people are getting it.



  • Who is going to volunteer
  • What is the vision/goal: trade assoc., professional group, club? (My two cents--Tris--I think it can operate in all three capacities)


Bottom line: we need people to step forward and take the reins of leadership.
