The discussion on weekday or Saturday has left me in doubt of when we will have the call? I am fine with weekdays or Saturday and imagine I am not the only one that prefers to get the date into the calendar with fair warning.

So which to we choose:
Thursday (October 29th) at 1 PM PST / 4 PM EST still works for me.
Saturday (October 31st) at 1 PM PST / 4 PM EST short warning for people, but works for me.
Saturday (November 7th) at 1 PM PST / 4 PM EST works for me.

Agenda suggestions from me:

- Create Chapter Committees/working groups that would suggest solutions for the following:
-- Chapter rules: Final Rules
-- Incorporation: Choose state for incorporation and how to get it done and financed
-- Financial: Create budget, plan for getting sponsors, suggest member fee, setup bank account, get ready to pack for incorporation, filing for tax exempt status
-- Membership: Plan for getting more members than the current 21
-- Partnership: How can governmental, organizational and corporate partners help us build the US map?
-- Map status and objectives: What is the status of the map and what is our objectives?

- Set date for next meeting (where we can decide on a lot of the suggestions by the working groups)

Do we have an agenda? What about someone who will act as a moderator? I
would volunteer to be it, but I can only be on the call for 15 minutes due
to a prior commitment.

I will work on putting an agenda in the wiki tonight.  If anyone has any
proposed topics add them or let me know.

My suggestion would be we discuss what is in the wiki and figure out how we
are going to move forward on that.
