Business Meeting

Express Business Meeting

This year's Westercon Business Meeting may have set a different sort of record from last year's. There were no items of business introduced, nor were any awaiting ratification from last year. We had a quorum (15 members) present right at 11 AM, and I called the meeting to order then, with a brief rush of blood to head when I apparently phased in and out between Seattle and Tonopah's universes. After ascertaining that there was no actual business this year and carefully explaining that there is no actual need for a Site Selection Business Meeting unless the site selection voting is inconclusive (like last year) and also clarifying how we would handle the unlikely-but-technically-possible case of an inconclusive election, the meeting adjourned at 11:07. That's right: this year's Westercon Business Meeting lasted only seven minutes. Contrast this with the 2h15min (not including recesses and committee of the whole) last year.

On the average, I guess I feel fine.
