Roll Call—Rosalie White, K1STO
Welcome—Frank Bauer, KA3HDO
Frank Bauer let the ARISS Team know that the ARISS-US Team is overwhelmed and backlogged with trying to take care of their ARISS responsibilities and also do duties that had been done previously by Debra Johnson and Mark Steiner. Some of the ARISS web pages have been updated, but more need to be. The window for receiving ARISS-US education proposals is now open and the team had updated the proposal form, the ARISS Proposal Guide, the method of receiving emailed proposals and signing up for and holding Webinars for educators. New releases were written and other work is being completed. The team is not able to answer emails in a timely manner.
