Motion to dispense with reading of change to bylaws by DD, seconded by Steve M. Motion to approve changes by Pam K, seconded by Jeff S. Tony S: what does “custody” mean in 6.5.1? David D: I have the same question. I tried to formalize the changes to move the process forward and am open to amendments. Discussion. Tony: because this has to do with money, it needs to be crystal clear. Discussion. Mark D: does not speak to auditing. Diane T: how does money actually leave the account when it is housed at the University? Discussion. Repeat of explanation from January about status as a legal entity. Discussion. Friendly amendment from Steve M to change part 3 to read:
6.5 The Treasurer shall:
6.5.1 provide guidance and reports of balances held at the University of Missouri
6.5.2 coordinate with the fiscal officer at MSDIS to complete deposits and withdrawls as directed by the vote of the committee.
David D accepts friendly amendment. No further discussion. Call for vote. Motion passes unanimously by vote.

State GIO ReportTim Haithcoat
Cadastral mapping state standard being drafted as legislation. Governor’s office, et al. want to map rural wireless internet availability. May have some input into the process. Joann Emerson got an earmark from the Dep’t of Justice for $1.2 for oblique imagery, hoping to change that to LIDAR. Liz C: what is the intention of the earmark? Tim H: the intention is the obliques, based on a conversation between the Jefferson Co E911 Coordinator and Joann Emerson. Tony S: apparently Pictometry is going around to the states saying they have some Federal money to partner with State money. Should know about the DOQ RFP soon. ESRI State Master Purchasing agreement being negotiated, moving forward. Ask if you have questions. Request came out from NSGIC expressing concerns about NAIP funds being pulled out of USDA for other projects. Tim read letter GIO/MGISAC will send to NSGIC, USDA, and related entities. Motion from Steve M to send letter as read. Second by Tony S. Passed by vote, Federal liaisons abstained.

Strategic PlanningEric Foster
Met with Pam K by phone to transition. Reviewed status of various documents. [later] Fifty States grant update by Pam K: feedback has been very good; side benefit is that we have contact information for local government staff. Will have a draft of the plan before the final meeting in April.
