Recommended Posts

Following are minutes from the Core members meeting: 20 October 2106.

  • We discussed potential new roles below.
  • It was noted that they have been designed to minimise workload on any one individual while delivering personal benefits from undertaking the role. These need to be fleshed out in promoting and recruiting the roles during upcoming webinars. 
  • Also noted that we need to create a flowchart to show how all the roles work together (Tim Kannegieter (TK) to do this).
  • It was agreed we would go to the broader community to ask for interest in undertaking these roles.
  • Further discussion about upcoming webinars and the desire to hear from technology vendors. TK emphasised EA needs to be impartial. It was agreed to brainstorm options, identify pros and cons of each and decide on an approach. TK to facilitate this.
