Ninety-fourth meeting of the IAOA Executive Council (EC)
Virtual Meeting of 9 Jan 2014    (07)

 Oliver Kutz

 Fabian Neuhaus
 Leo Obrst
 Laure Vieu (Treasurer)    (08)

The EC confirmed Michael Gruninger, John Bateman and Frank Loebe as IAOA
President, Vice President and Secretary, respectively.    (09)

The Treasurer will send a message to remind people to renew, after the EC
analyzed the data regarding membership renewal for 2014 so far. The
President will send a message to summarize the IAOA activities in 2013 and
to highlight planned activities for 2014. Moreover, a message on the death
of E.J. Lowe is to be distributed to the membership.    (010)

The Treasurer reviewed the IAOA budget and the trend over the years.
Counting solely revenues and expenditures in 2013, IAOA has significantly
increased the funding of various events, exceeding the incoming regular
membership fees (deliberately). Nevertheless and due to extant effects from
FOIS 2012 and the 2012 Summer school, the budget resources remain strong and
the association can fund more activities in the future. The EC confirms that
particular attention is given to the flagship event FOIS and to scholarships
for students.    (011)

The position of the Treasurer will be vacant soon. The EC is considering
adding a new official role of "Membership Officer", separated from the
Treasurer and intended to deal with issues such as membership
registration/renewal and membership documentation. Duties and
responsibilities of the Membership Officer will be clarified in a subsequent
proposal. As for the Treasurer, it is expected that the new officer need not
be an EC member and will take office based on nomination by the EC.    (012)

The FOIS organizers received several workshop proposals which are now being
evaluated. The number of accepted workshops will depend on quality and
available facilities. The set of invited speakers for FOIS could not yet be
finalized, but this is actively being pursued.    (013)

For the potential relocation of IAOA to Switzerland, the EC needs to search
for an organization that could assist in hosting IAOA, e.g., for providing a
postal address.    (014)
