Welcome, Introductions & Agenda Agreement

Terry Smith (Chair, AAF) opened the meeting and welcomed the Steering Group members for the last meeting of the year.
The minutes of the previous meeting were approved and all open actions remain open.
No topics for the AOB were suggested.

Membership Updates and Joining

Since FENIX (Mexico) has joined eduGAIN no new candidates have been assessed. The use of the new voting tool Zeus has lead to a significant increase of casted votes. The Secretariat is possitive about the tool and will use it for future votes.

Early December the Chair, Secretariat and Service Owner were approached by BIF (Bulgaria) with the request to be moved from voting-only to participating member. BREN has updated its policy page and the OT is collaborating with BIF to get their MDS working.
