Members Meeting - Sun Jan 14 4 - 7 pm
I’ve moved the member meeting date to Sun Jan 14th.
I made a facebook event for it:
I work until 5pm on the 14th so I will be late. I am still considering my schedule for the upcoming year, but as of right now I am planning on running for board again. I am excited by what the future holds for us and I would like to be a part of it!
Shall we use this thread for the Sunday Meeting or make a new one, @kile? We could re-name (edit) the title of this thread?
I don’t really see a need to rename, but if you do, then go for it.
@kile Renaming it will make it easier to find later. Done!
@Vaughn, I use tags to find things later. They are better than the title/content search, which, even if stuff is properly labeled, can generate a lot of false positives making the results harder to sort through.
Tags for the win.
Considering the thread will contain the agenda and notes for the Sunday Jan 14 Members Meeting, renaming it as such seems like an obvious improvement to The Year Ahead.
@Vaughn, to me it seems obvious that the old name identified the time period that the meeting would be the focus on planning, and changing it would detract from the focus, and place details that could otherwise appear in the body of the conversation in the forefront. This isn’t a regular members meeting, but a tag of membersmeeting (which the topic was tagged with) would allow it to be located easily as a members meeting.
Please be careful when suggesting subjective matters and opinions should be obvious to others. It is easy for people to interpret that as an implication that their opinions incorrect, and that they may be deficient for not seeing this (as it is obvious).
Sunday at 4. Just bumping this up the list
No agenda as of yet? Or is the post just not showing up for me?
@pierre, no formal agenda as of yet, but I’ll start to post a rough outline by editing the top post to the thread. Please feel free to suggest items with a reply below, or edit the agenda if you want to and can (please track edits).
