The excom discussed the status of the selection of a candidate for the PIR board.  The excom consensus was to make a recommendation to the board to appoint Ingrid Srinath to the PIR board for a term that will end in mid-2015.

VI. AOB
Possible appeal – Bob noted to the excom that there was a possibility that there might be an IETF appeal to the ISOC Board.  He noted that under the process described in RFC 2026 the only situation in which an appeal to the ISOC Board can be made is if the claim is that the process described in RFC 2026 is flawed in some way.

Board meeting locations for 2014 and beyond.  Bob asked if there had been any updates to the schedule for future ISOC events that had been distributed to the board.  Lynn said that there had not been.

Narelle left the call at this time.
