WORKING GROUP COORDINATION AND TECH CAPACITY:

1. Create our list of asks from the working groups. We should begin a list of things we expect/need from working groups as Comms/Tech/Language-Justice.

A specific set of activities we expect working groups to have the agency to do themselves, i.e. create mailing lists and email addresses, post content to the website/wiki/whatever, provide translations, be aware of their political choices involved with comm/tech/language decisions.
  • Discussion space setup and form?
  • Email lists- purge old names when new work group lists established?

2. Formulate a preliminary schedule for tech/language education.

3. Prioritize the various requests that came out of the Monday afternoon session.

ASKS FROM WORKING GROUPS:

  • Discuss list to enable communication/discussion outside NPC list:
