Joe Dominguez: Welcomed first time attendees Jill Ross and Steve Reznikoff. Asked all attendees to visit the new Fast Rope website (https://fastrope.wildapricot.org) if they had not already done so. Identified many of the updates recently made like simplifying the number of blog and forums. Asked those that had been on the new website if they had any feedback on its ease of use, organization, registration process, etc. Their feedback was pass along to David Hart. Lastly, I am leading an effort to prepare a slide deck on the IDIQ’s our SATX members have in their arsenal. The idea here is to capture some basic, useful information about each IDIQ and have it in one document for our members to reference when needed. I have a template and I’m looking for volunteers from our membership to prepare a slide on their company’s IDIQs. Goal is to have the consolidated slide deck ready for presentation at our March 2016 Fast Rope meeting. If you would like to prepare a slide on your company’s IDIQ, please contact me soonest.
