Imagina Agreement

A full report will be written and posted on siggraph.org.

Motion (Chalmers, Frey) To approve the agreement with Imagina.
Approved (6,0,0)

Conference Call Minutes
Motion (Owen, Chalmers) To approve the minutes of the December 19th Executive Committee conference call.
Approved (6,0,0)

Stephen will have a proposal for approval at the next Executive Committee conference call on March 13, 2002.
