AMICO Executive Committee

Report from Michael Shapiro
General Counsel, AMICO

July 15, 1998

Dear Harry:

I am writing to submit my statement of services rendered as General Counsel of the Art Museum Image Consortium for June 1998. During this period, I am able to report that AMICO continued to take important steps on a number of major legal issues.

First, as you know, AMICO was incorporated as a not-for-profit corporation in the District of Columbia on June 2, 1998. This is a milestone for the organization. Shortly thereafter, the Executive Committee of the Board of Directors of AMICO adopted the Bylaws at its June 1998 meeting in Worcester, Massachusetts. Working closely with David Bearman and Jennifer Trant, I made the final revisions to the AMICO Full Membership Agreement and the AMICO University License, which were circulated for signature by AMICO Members and the participants in the 1998 University test bed.

I represented AMICO at the annual meeting of the National Association of College and University Attorneys (NACUA) in Philadelphia on June 1998, explaining the terms and conditions of the AMICO University Agreement to audience of about one hundred (100) college and university attorneys. The response was quite favorable. I also continued to assist Archives and Museum Informatics in securing on the most favorable terms Directors & Officers and general, comprehensive liability insurance for AMICO.


Michael S. Shapiro
General Counsel, AMICO
