   1. Accept minutes of Last Meeting
          * Proposed: James Seconded: John Unanimously accepted.
   2. Report on the status of bank accounts and account signatories.
          * Some new and old CTTE members met at Martin Place branch 9:30 @ westpac. James & John added themselves and Peter without much need for documentation. LA now has $150k in a term deposit account which expires torwards the end of May and $55k in the cash management account. A new account was opened and a debit card is attached to that. John has the card. We will draft a policy on how much to keep in that account. There appears to be an unused legacy LCA account as well. Will close that. James, John & Peter are now signatories. Will probably get access in a week, if paperwork clears.

   3. Any logistics required for the face-to-face hand-over meeting.
          * Seems to be under control. Invite AJ & Stewart. Start at 9am, finish at 6pm at the latest.

   4. Status update on the Membership Survey.
          * Pretty much done. Some members offered feedback, waiting for that. Maybe some fine tuning left to do. Take draft to F2F and all have a look and a brainstorm on distribution and results. Some suggestions to tweak some value/rating questions. 

   5. Status update on Linux Australia store.
          * No reply to email yet. Will call next week if required.
