    • CfP. DanaBalser will check with BryanButler on the status for the VLA. MarkClaussen reported that the VLBA part of the VLBA/HSA/GMVA CfP has been drafted. There is some ongoing communication for HSA, but this should be ready by Monday. The GMVA, however, has been delayed since we are still waiting for feedback from ALMA. ToneyMinter reported that a draft is ready for the GBO CfP and will be ready by 2 July 2020.
    • PST CfP Items. RickLively and LorantSjouwerman reported that things are in good shape. There was some discussion of the LST calcuation ticket and the ECT ticket. These still need some work to complete.
    • PST Documentation. LorantSjouwerman reviewed the tickets and suggested updates to the documention for VLBI: HSA and Y1 4 Gbps to go to SRO; and VLA: addition of 4 and 4/P bands as SRO, YUPPI SRO (excluding 4-band), and data rates < 100 MB/s GO. The VLBI and VLA text will be updated by MarkClaussen and LorantSjouwerman. respectively.
    • PST Review Items. We discussed the four PST Review items and the plan is to complete all of them. Here are the priorities:
      • SSA-5469 Panel chair reviews for non-conflicted proposals: High; already ready for testing. RickLively will setup webtest and DanaBalser will test.
      • SSA-5024 ReviewsComplete flag not all set for reviewer: Medium; Maybe some difficulty to do.
      • SSA-5821 Technical Reviewers "Complete All Proposals" brings pop-up about scores: Medium; should be easy to do.
      • SSA-5782 Technical Justification future semesters box not greyed out when reviewers opens proposal: Low; should be easy to do.
    • PHT Items. We discussed the four PHT Review items and the plan is to complete all of them. Here are the priorities:
      • SSA-5765 Sorting when sessions are split across multiple semesters: High; this has been worked on before and the fix caused other problems, so this may take some time to fix.
      • SSA-6048 PHT: Triggered proposals not in pressure plot: High; needs some investigation. There is a place to add these in the code that has been commented out for some reason. We need to understand why.
      • SSA-5904 PHT is missing the GWT and PCO labels: Medium; needs some investigation.
      • SSA-5764 Modify semester selection for sessions: Low; should be easy to do.
    • SRP/TAC Recruitment. MarkClaussen and AmyMioduszewski reported the following status:
      • HIZ: done.
      • NGA: 1 vacancy (invitation out).
      • ISM: 2 vacancies. Two active members stepped down in the last week (one is still pending). An invitation is out.
      • SFM: done.
      • EGS: 3 vacancies (invitations out).
      • AGN: 4 vacancies including supplemental (invitations out).
      • GWT: done; chair has been found.
      • PCO: 1 vacancy (invitation out).
      • SSP: 1 vacancy (rejection).
  • AOB
    • SRP/TAC Newsletter: LorantSjouwerman suggested we advertize for reviewers. We already have a web page that allows folks to self nominate and have included this in a Newsletter article in the past. It might be useful to do this again next spring.
