Summary: Board reviewed decisions by ExCo to reduce expenses, and determined that while these will place ORCID in a positive cash flow through the end of the year, additional effort is needed to obtain grant or other non-membership funding in the near and mid-term to support ORCID as we build our membership.  Board will review financials again in one month.

No Motions Passed.
