The resolution looks good to me.

What you have works for me.

I'd support you doing this.  It may be a good idea to include a term length in 
our bylaws so that whoever is in the chair position has a definite end to 
their commitment (with the option to continue).  I'd just like to avoid the 
case where someone volunteers and then gets stuck in a position because no one 
else wants to do it.

How about adding a little on the end about our simple end user self-service 
interface?  Something like:

VCL is a modular cloud computing platform which dynamically provisions and 
brokers remote access to compute resources while providing a simple self-
service interface for end users.

I'm certainly not a grammar expert, but I don't think a comma is needed before 
the 'which' in this case.
