Process for "signing on" to things?

  • Hard to implement a simple rubric because we don't have a clear set of values to test against
  • Board members look at it / take a vote / discuss?
  • How can we make it something other than an executive decision?
    • Open something up to fc-discuss?
    • Two days open to block
  • Signing on as "Board members of..." a chapter-based org

ACTA / Donovan

  • Blog post potential


Web renovations

  • Parker will update us

Chapter database stuff

  • Chapters can fill out a gForm and it will post into a gDoc spreadsheet
  • Ideal workflow (== email + gdocs + python glue):
    • User notices "new chapter" link
    • Fills out form, clicks Submit
    • You are then subscribed to FC-Discuss
    • Your info is automatically entered into a spreadsheet
    • Someone from SFC emails "Hey! Saw that you registered!"
    • This person has a phone call
    • The new chapter is "approved" and appears on the front of the site

Main website design/content refresh stuff
