Agenda items for the yearEdit
- Board search: Finding three new board members for the board-appointed positions.
- We want to try to find all 3, or at least: find the first member but have a shortlist we can use in 2015
- but we also want to onboard each new member separately as they join
- Onboarding process: Preparing material to introduce new board members to the culture and practices of the board (using IRC, the wiki, and how to interact with the community).
- Elections committee: Starting the committee that will facilitate the election process in summer 2015.
- Advisory group: Reviewing the role of the advisory group.
