September 29, 2004 Minutes           Correction and Approval.
Chair's Report                       Jeff Kent introduced the new committee members, John
                                     Milligan who is taking over the remaining 1 year of Eric
                                     Swelstad’s term, and David Falk, who was appointed to the
                                     open 2 year term.
IMAP4 Access                         Jorge Mata advised the committee that the equipment to
                                     implement IMAP4 access and the anti-spam gateway has
                                     been ordered and should be delivered and installed before

                                     all employees who request it. The anti-spam service will be
                                     opt out by default, with employees having to affirmatively

                                  opt in.
Caller ID (Follow up)             Jorge Mata advised the committee that there was a choice
                                  between waiting to implement Caller ID in connection with
                                  the Proposition A construction (several months before the
                                  first building) and attempting to do so earlier. The latter
                                  would require budget approval, and also risks that a portion
                                  of the upgrade would be incompatible with LAVC needs
                                  once the Proposition A construction is underway.
Photo ID Systems (Update)         There are conflicting reports regarding whether the photo ID
                                  system now is operational. Accordingly, Jeff Kent agreed
                                  that after the meeting he would attempt to obtain a photo ID
                                  and put the result in these minutes. He was able to obtain a
                                  photo ID, so the system appears to be operational.
Technology Plan                   Laurie Nalepa and Lou Albert reviewed the current status of
(Follow up)                       the development of the Technology Plan. Each TUG
                                  (Technology User Group) will provide a short report at our
                                  next meeting.
