Changes in status as a result of attendance at this meeting

The EC Standing Rules state the following penalties for non-attendance at EC meetings (note that those who participate in face-to-face meetings by phone are officially counted as absent):

  • Missing two meetings in a row results in a loss of voting privileges until two consecutive meetings have been attended.

  • Missing five meetings in a row, or missing two-thirds of the meetings in any consecutive 12-month period results in loss of the EC seat.

There are no changes in voting privileges as a result of this meeting.

Personnel Changes

EC Stats

Heather presented the usual EC stats (see the presentation for details).

Java in Education

Heather reviewed the summary of discussions in the Java in Education Working Group since our April EC Meeting. We created a wiki page for Java User Group Leaders to utilize for resources and sharing experiences. All materials for the Java in Education Working Group should be posted and accessed on the EC Community space (accessible to the public) for reviewing the work and discussions of the group. This is the collaboration space for the work of the JCP Executive Committee. EC Members should ensure all material they present or prepare on their personal or corporate drives at the meetings are posted on this publicly accessible EC space.

We will review the update to the presentation JUG leaders can use in the public EC Meeting. EC Members can use a new social media template to promote the importance and need for Java developers, and to spread the word about Java in Education for JUG leaders (create and also amplify communication from @jcp_org). This artwork is only for EC Member use and the graphics and colors should not be modified (text can be added). All artwork should be downloaded from the EC private site and artwork files should not be accessed or stored on any other site.

The Java in Education Working Group will meet again on July 14 to review feedback collected from JUG leaders over the next few weeks, through formal and informal means.

Other Business

Heather reviewed the remaining dates for the 2020 calendar (see the presentation for details). The September face to face will not be in San Francisco, but will be held as a virtual online meeting.

We adjourned this portion of the meeting to join the June Public EC Meeting.
