This week's Board meeting is potentially one of the most important meetings of the year. I highly encourage as many Board members as can make it to attend. The agenda at this meeting calls for the approval of the Fabric Software Development Platform that we have been discussing now for almost a year. The initial idea to do something different than the original Interop Logo Program was floated at a BoF at the 2019 OFA Workshop. Since that time, significant work by a small, dedicated team of people has gone into defining something totally different and far more useful. Over the course of the last three months, the overall scope of this project has been communicated to the members of the board via various XWG meetings, but this month is when we finally take the entire package, complete with a preferred vendor to host the project, and ask for Board approval to proceed. The attached power point presentation has links to the final versions of the FSDP proposal, Siting options, WG Charter, and Acceptable Use Policy. Preview of these materials by Board members would be greatly appreciated as it will allow us to work through the voteables in a more timely fashion at the Board meeting. 


    1. Approve the minutes from the 6/25/2020 Board meeting 
    2. Election of Treasurer (nominations open until 7/13/2020) 
    3. Proposal to disband the Interop Working Group that used to oversee the Interop Logo Program that was halted earlier this year

        1. Voteable on the FSDP Acceptable Use Policy 
        2. Voteable on creating the FSDP Working Group as per the FSDP Working Group Charter 
        3. Voteable on selecting a vendor for hosting the FSDP infrastructure 
        4. Voteable on modifying the 2020 budget to account for the significant expenditures the FSDP will require 
Pursuant to the FSDP proposal passing, a proposal to open nominations for Co-Chairs of the FSDP WG
