Other business

  • Committee minutes to go up on WIKI
  • Agenda to go up on WIKI for next meeting and hope to get mow core people
  • Automate reminders via Google calendar?
  • Chair to moderate the agenda
  • Peter D: can committee roles rotate? DC: not according to our constitution, but we have flexibility in constitution to rearrange, but it is a pain in the ass. Maybe we could have more OGMs, or open meetings? Idea to give more members experience of chairing, secretary-ing per meeting or per set of meetings. Easier to rotate chair than longer-term responsible roles like treasurer/secretary. Can we get temp roles like “Minute Taker” responsible to the secretary, or Meeting Convener for one-off chair, etc etc.
  • Jason in Quartermaster role is getting more toilet paper.

Next Meeting: Tuesday August 10th
