Additional Discussion

        J.J. Sojka acknowledged the company new practice that SEC pays $300 to SEC Board Members who have not participated in contract work during the prior year for their attendance at the Annual Board Meeting.  However, due to the current short fall in funding, J.J. Sojka moved to reduce the Board Member compensation to $100 per meeting. R. W. Schunk seconded the motion.  R. W. Schunk noted that SEC should revisit this practice when funding levels return.  He also noted that the annual SEC dinner during the AGU Fall meeting in San Francisco has been canceled for fiscal reasons.  The motion to reduce Board Member compensation passed unanimously.

 

J. J. Sojka noted that W. J. Raitt may be paid under a future proposed effort to field an “Agile” radio receiver at his home in Tucson, AZ. 

 

J. J. Sojka put forward a question of what should be done if funding does not come through in the coming financial year.  R.W. Schunk suggested that SEC not worry about the situation until the situation arrives.  He restated the position as President of SEC to strive to guarantee the positions of Vince Eccles and Don Rice as SEC employees.  Vince Eccles notes that as funding runs short he must consider his future employment. 

 

J. J. Sojka moved and W. J. Raitt seconded to adjourn the meeting at 9:45pm.
