VII . Misc

Discussion of the meeting time for the General Assembly: There was one strong objection raised prior to the meeting about the meeting time. General discussion that: 1) The meeting should be held while daylight savings time is active. This makes it easier for some to attend. 2) We should be able to move the meeting 1 or 2 hours earlier and not inconvenience too many. This will make it most difficult for Western US participants. 5am Pacific time. and 10pm for Brisbane Australia.

There was some consensus that Fridays is a reasonable day for the meeting.

A time for next year's GA was proposed: 7 April 20162017, 1100Z. Accepted by "clap" vote.

X. Closing

The assembly was closed by LynnwoodBrown at 12:30Z
