The EC discussed the needs for a general policy to provide funding to supported 
events, including participation in those events. As of now, IAOA has funded 
invited speakers and prizes/awards. The EC agreed that funding will only be 
provided by adopting rules for each event, while unsolicited individual 
requests will generally be denied. The main focus of IAOA event funding shall 
remain to be co-organized events.    (011)

The chairs of the Education Committee have stepped down and the EC will look 
for new candidates to take the position(s).    (012)

The schedule for the Technical Committees and SIGs meetings is not complete 
yet.     (013)

Here is the list of the IAOA TCs and SIGs:    (014)

IAOA Technical Committees (TCs)
- Education Committee
- Standardisation Coordination Committee

IAOA Special Interest Groups (SIGs)
- Ontologies and Conceptual Modeling SIG
- Design Semantics: Ontologies, Inference, and Standards for Spatial Design SIG
- Geo-Semantics: Geospatial Ontologies and Standards SIG    (016)

Since the web infrastructure is now working and offers several functionalities, 
the EC calls on IAOA Champions of supported events to provide a blog entry for 
the Association website before the event and a report/survey entry afterwards 
(cf. Art.X in the IAOA Bylaws).    (017)

The following event has been recognized as IAOA supported event:    (018)

The rest of the EC meeting was dedicated to the Standardization Coordination 
Committee, comprising an initial presentation by the committee chair Michael
Gruninger and subsequent discussion. The meeting with the Design Semantics SIG 
had to be postponed.    (020)
