RE: today's call canceled, 3 September next?

I'm glad to hear that you're back and fired up and ready to go, Jose.  I
hate to wait another month to have another eGov IG telecon, but if we can
use the listserv and wiki to get some activities underway, that would be
fine with me.  The means that we use to do our work are not so important as
the results we produce.  In that regard, meetings/telecons are usually more
conducive to motivating folks to do some work than they are to actually
performing the work itself.  So I hope folks don't take the lack of a
telecon as an excuse either: a) not to commit to doing anything for another
month, or b) wait until just before the next telecon to do that to which
they may have volunteered to commit their effort.

BTW, there are now about 320 plans in the StratML collection:  One of the tasks I would like
to perform for the eGov IG is to further flesh out its strategic plan -- -- into a performance plan.  Since AIIM's
StratML Committee has not yet specified the extensions to the StratML core
schema covering the elements of performance plans, I won't be able to
compile a full-blown performance plan for the IG.  However, the minimum
requirement for a strategic plan to become a performance plan is to
designate for each performance objective a <Stakeholder> of the
leader/manager performer type.  That I can do with the existing schema and
supporting eForms tools.  All that I need is: 

a) the names and brief descriptions of any, more explicit performance
objectives than those already expressed in the eGov IG's charter, and 

b) the names of the folks who have volunteered to take the lead in the
performance of the necessary tasks to accomplish those objectives.

It would also be helpful to have a brief description of *how* they intend to
conduct each task, but that is not essential since the results will speak
for themselves.

Dear all,

Just back from vacation. I don't see much activity in the list, and  
Kevin and I had to deal with some personal matters and couldn't get an  
agenda to you on time. I'm sorry about the late message.

I prefer to cancel this call instead of having it without enough  
preparation. Next one would be 20 August, but I guess many will be on  
vacation, so we should probably skip that one, too.

Unless someone feels strongly against it, I propose to resume calls on  
3 September and I encourage those around until then to use the mailing  
list and wiki in the meantime. I hope we'll be able to provide an  
interesting agenda for you for that one and suggestions are always  
welcome. Don't wait for us to do it, just tell us!

In any case, I'm now full of energy. Be aware! ;)
