  1. Approval of February Minutes

Roberta Johnson motioned to accept the minutes as presented and Emily Law seconded the motion. The minutes were approved by acclamation.

  1. Force11 Data Citation Principles
    Ruth Duerr presented to the group on the finalized Force 11 Data Citation Principles. Force 11 is now looking for groups to sign on and endorse these principles. The principles are at a very high level. Ruth worked with the committee that drafted these principles and there isn't anything that doesn't align with our own Data Citation Guidelines. Ruth suggested that ESIP endorse the Force 11 principles. The group felt it would be beneficial if the Force 11 Data Citation Principles linked back to the ESIP Data Citation Guidelines if ESIP endorses. The next steps are to share the Force 11 principles with the ESIP Assembly and then vote on endorsement.
