With respect to the agenda of the members meeting - correct me if I am
wrong but my understanding is that the JSF Foundation is already in
existance for over a year.

So I'd expect that in order for this to be 'the' annual meeting you'd want
to do a couple of things to stay clean with the local governments and be
proper enough as to be able to deal with things like liability, proper
conduct, IRS dealings for 501(c)/non-profit versus not-for-profit.

Very Common items are (and I am not 100% sure to what extend these must be
done at this meeting in the US under the statues you incorperated under) -
but I'd certainly would expect them to be there:

- Roll call together with the Call for quorum.
- Establishment of the agenda/new business item open for addition.
- Apart from a review also a Report by the officers and/or their
  subcomittees.
- Omnibus resolution and/or approval of the financial statement to
  allow the board to replace itself and discharge the old directors
  of any wrongdoing.
- Establishing or talking about your goals for the next year
  and specifically the Budget. Wether this needs to be approved
  depends on your bylaws.
- New Business
- Announcements
- Adjournment

If needed I can try to explain why each of the items is generally there.
