November 14th Board Meeting Agenda

Hi team,

I figure out that it makes a lot of sense to create a place for people to add and discuss meeting agenda items, starting with the next meeting items generated from the previous meeting: October 9th Kick off Meeting Minutes

Communications tools and processes training
☐ Launch party venue and planning
Adopt Board Bylaws
☐ Consent to October 9th Kick off Meeting Minutes

Cheers :slightly_smiling_face:

Announcement: @michael and I discussed having him step into facilitating our November board meeting. He’ll be taking over agenda planning now! Look out for updated from him.

@michael, as you put together the Nov. 14th agenda, note that @Farzana-Pritte will be doing the agenda item about training board members on Discourse, our communication and collaboration platform. Yay, Farzana. :smiley:

Hey @Farzana-Pritte - could we touch bases next week to talk about the Discourse training you’ll be discussing at the Nov 14th board meeting? Let me know what days/times work for you next week. Reply here works. Call or text works too (917-943-6225)

Hi Michael,

Does next week, Thursday work for you?

Hi @michael could you please add this location as the place we’ll meet for our next board meeting?
Panera Bread
452 5th Ave, New York, NY 10018

Thank you!
Rachel

Just realized I replied “You Got It!”

But you didn’t get it because in Discourse, replies via email have to 20 characters or longer lol.

Anyway - done! Calendar updated.

You can reply with a “+1” to indicate things like “You Got It!” and “Thank you!” because that translates to a like :heart:

Try it out! How’d it work for you?

Also, sent you some likes myself. :slightly_smiling_face:

Gang - a few “Need To Knows” for next week

  1. Please arrive on time, so we can start on time. (Agenda is packed.)
  2. If you think you will want to eat or drink at Panera Bread, please try to come 15 to 20 minutes ahead. (So that getting food doesn’t cause us to start late.)
  3. Each board member has to pay for their own food/drinks/meals at this month’s meeting. (If you have questions, please reach out to Deborah.)
  4. Reminder that the meeting will be at Panera Bread - so we will be in an open, and public, space.
  5. The Agenda will be finalized by next Wednesday 11/13 at 5 PM. Hard copies will be provided at the meeting. Digital copies will be available in the Board Circle’s Google Drive folder.

Thanks everyone!
