The People Who Board of Directors met by email on Friday, October 30, 2015 at 10 AM PST.
www.peoplewho.org /documents, /readingroom and /lists pages are maintained at a basic level of usefulness. Materials that have no other home are uploaded. The website has not been modernized. Organizing and legal documents have been scanned and uploaded /aboutus and most hard copies discarded. There are occasional email requests for more information or referrals.
Bluehost: www.peoplewho.org received visits in the last 12 months.
The IRIS email announcement list, hosted by ICORS, has 130 subscribers and has shifted content towards health in general, ways to organize, some politics, some technology, a bit of philosophy, displaced persons, poverty, surveillance. Since the focus has broadened, periodic reminders about the list's availability have not been sent. IRIS messages are short, URLs with a brief quote or subject line. No interest has been expressed in instead having a blog in order to include comments and discussion. People Who has no active presence on Twitter or Facebook.
Re-Occupy The Mind, a Facebook group, was created and is no longer administered (many requests to join from advertisers; vetting requesters was burdensome, but requests are added in bulk once in a while).
Required legal tax and income statements are filed electronically when required.
The People Who Board of Directors held a special meeting by email on April 2, 2015 to endorse new officers. In anticipation of the current President having turned 80: President, Victoria Caras; Vice-President: Sylvia Caras. Sylvia Caras will continue as the point of contact and spokesperson. There are no immediate changes anticipated on the website or the IRIS email list. Victoria Caras is a Quiet Owner of the IRIS list and is the administrative contact for www.peoplewho.org. Paperwork has been filed with CA Secretary of State.
