Agenda

We have a lot to cover, so we won't be going very in-depth on most subjects; instead, we'll introduce the topic and direct interested individuals to the appropriate place. Feel free to ask a question at any time, but we will need to stay on topic and move through the agenda; further discussion can take place on the wiki, mailing lists, or IRC channel, or at future meetings.

Update chapter roster & contacts

We need to figure out (1) which of our chapters will still be around next semester, and (2) who will serve as the contact for the national org. Many of our chapter contacts are graduating, so they either need to give us a new contact for their chapter, or confirm that their chapter is shutting down. We will have an official, automated way to do this through our website within the next few weeks, but for now we can just take an unofficial headcount.

How FreeCulture.org can help chapters

Inform chapters of resources available and ask where help is needed.

FreeCulture.org can offer chapters:

  • A subdomain (yourschool.freeculture.org) to redirect to your chapter's Web site, blog, or wiki
  • Wiki hosting for your chapter
  • Mailing list(s) for your chapter
  • Swag shipped to your chapter
  • Advice and witty banter from FreeCulture.org chapters and friends

In the future, FreeCulture.org will be able to offer chapters:

  • Blog hosting
  • Single login across FC.o-hosted wikis and blogs
    • Is this correct? --Gavin 17:10, 12 July 2007 (JST)
  • Shared address book
  • More and better swag shipped to your chapter

Where to go to get help and/or make friends:
