Shout outs!

  • All MozFest Space Volunteers, and everyone who attended the event, gave a talk, participate, etc.
  • Big #mozlove to Faye who instead of being at MozFest as planned, stayed with a sick Mozillian in London to make sure they got treatment and started on the road to recovery
  • Semirah Dolan, who joined Emma Irwin in Houston to run a session that build a VR activity for Campus Clubs, and who truly leads by example — student leadership and activism in open source
  • Safwan Rahman, who (no exaggeration) saved Emma’s day, by pulled together a Python project, working with me to the last minute to get it right at Grace Hopper Open Source Day.
  • Edoardo for the amazing poster in Mozfest about campus https://www.instagram.com/p/BMMAQ2Phm00/?taken-by=mozillagram

  • Also Swag request form received an update (thank you Kiki)
  • Second round of Coach training begun yesterday
  • When is the Mexico community gathering?
  • Are applications open for new Reps? And will they be reviewed within the pre-ordained time period (3-4 weeks)?? Previously there was a huge gap between the reviewing time for new Rep applications, hence the reason for asking this question.
  • Council ask for a little more patience here, yes, new applications will be open in the near future, but still the queue is long and we need to onboard the current queue.

TOPIC 6 - Council updates - Laka

  • Improve Outgoing Communication - https://goo.gl/forms/Pu3uIA0s9xcPdvsh2
  • We think that it is important to make sure Reps know about the things happening in Participation and any decisions the council makes. We want to use the right ways to communicate our information.
  • Please complete this short survey to let us know what is important to you and how you like us to communicate with you. The survey should take less than 10 minutes to complete and any information you provide will not be shared with anybody outside the Council.
  • Q4 OKRs Draft
  • Working on a proposal around Recognition
  • Updating Reps Applications

NON-VERBAL UPDATES (ie: you can’t attend but want to share something)
