Emory Hiring Freeze Emory have a hiring freeze but 'endowed positions' may be exempt - if so, this is moving forward.
Tech job description Being reviewed
Hyrax PO Possible appointment subject to the person getting local agreement - they would need to 'ramp up' as other commitments were shed. If this falls through we have a number of possible alternatives.
Fundraising issues in light of COVID-19 Need to change the language of the fundraising letter to allow for possible constraints and/or opportunities resulting from the pandemic. Need to move up the invoicing. RGto liaise with Lyrasis about this and to suggest changes to the existing text.
Partner prospectus - what was the plan for this? Put the document on the website (maybe under 'who uses?') Alert Partners to its existence and encourage them to read it (in the context of the Contribution Model changes) and to share it as appropriate.RGto arrange.

Connect 2021 See above.
Code of Conduct RGto email Code of Conduct committee to try to find out about progress.
Sloan Foundation approach Discussion of whether now was the right time to pursue this (with the stock market slump). Might be a good time to push the 'enabling remote working' angle?
Anything for next Partner call Partner prospectus Possible update on SC2020/21
Arrangements for 2020/21 No reply yet from Lyrasis re JD's questions. Need also to clarify the position over continuing the arrangements for paying RG beyond the summer. Lyrasis proposal for a 2020/21 service is acceptable.
Budget for 2020/21 RG needs info from Emory about costs additional to basic salary and to know that Lyrasis will pay across two payments to Emory in 20/21 without overhead charges. With that information a budget can be drawn up.
