Hi everyone,

On Sunday, the Board of Directors gathered to meet in person before the start of the Paris Summit. We were fortunate to have all Board members attend, as well as a few dozen observers. We had a large agenda, but spent the majority of time hearing Platinum and Gold Member presentations before we cut the agenda short to convene the joint Board / TC meeting. 

To start the meeting, the Board approved minutes from the Oct 20 Board meeting, and I gave an update on behalf of the Foundation Staff.  We then heard presentations from five companies who applied to fill the open Platinum Member position: Cisco, EMC, Ericsson, Huawei and Intel. All companies who applied are strong candidates and contributors to the community, and the Board ultimately elected Intel as the newest Platinum Member.  Two companies: Nebula and Symantec, applied to be Gold Members, but that decision was deferred until a later Board meeting (expected to take place via phone in December).  We were unable to tackle any additional agenda items or committee updates because we ran over time.

There's a great energy as the community gathered in Paris this week, and I have enjoyed seeing so many of you who were able to attend the Summit.
