I propose that as soon as OVC gets any real money--even a couple
thousand, which looks plausible--the OVC board should start Alan on an
initial stipend as President. As most members here know, Alan has
volunteered a whole lot of time over the last several years, getting
the OVC and EVM2003 going, certainly much more than any of the rest of

A couple thousands bucks doesn't reimburse even Alan's ongoing work for
more than a very short time... but I'm sure he could use it still.
Obviously, we still hope some real funding sources come in, either HAVA
monies, or foundation grants of various sorts. And if so, Alan will
certainly have a major role in those projects (and get a real salary).
But in the interim, I for one advocate directing some of these
donations to our hardworking president.

Yours, David...
