President's Report

Continued thanks to SPI Vice President, Stephen Frost, for handling
contracting with SPI's current and potential contractors. Stephen
continues to do a fantastic job working with our contractors and
legal counsel.

SPI's Merrill Lynch account has been opened but additional paperwork
is needed to finalize the setup. I'll be reaching out to Stephen Frost
to obtain the needed information (Merrill Lynch is requiring US citizens
for the forms).

Treasurer's report

The SPI treasury team is continuing to process requests and is striving for
more timely ticket handling. The backlog is being processed but if there are
any board members who would like to assist with treasury tasks, additional
help is always welcome.

Secretary's report

No updates.

Any other business

Some discussion about DNS hosting and application process for the Ganeti project was had.


The meeting was adjourned until Monday April 13th, 2020 at 20:00 UTC in #spi on
