[MeFi Site Update] September 28th September 28, 2022 3:46 PM   Subscribe

Hi there, Metafilter! You’ll find some updates regarding the site below. I’m looking forward to your feedback and questions.

- Steering Committee updates
I met with the Steering Committee (SC) and we went over next steps. Please find some updates below:

– Short term goals: The SC is going over contributor applications, tools they will need, budget, etc.
– Expenses & Revenue: I gave them an overview of where we are at and will start sharing monthly reports of revenue and expenses from now on.
– Our Project Management tool: I have now invited all the SC members to our Project Management Board and will be creating the necessary sub boards for specific working groups as the needs arise.
– Fundraising: We’ll be prioritizing this and one of our first steps.
– Tool Implementation: We have started using Hubspot for contributor applications and will use it more and more for other business needs in the next months.

- Site changes.
frimble is still working through the flagging UI. The SC will be meeting with them to evaluate next steps and prioritization.

- BIPOC Advisory Board
Thyme and I had the latest meeting with the Board last Saturday where we went over goals for the rest of the year and the new tools they have. Then, the day after, both the Board and the SC had their first meeting (coordinated by the BIPOC Board Liaison) to go over how both groups want to interact and contribute together. I’ll work with them to put the notes from that meeting together and share them here.
The last meetings minutes are pending final edits and approval from the Board and will be posted on the site ASAP.

But seriously, it's good to hear that the SC is making multiple decisions in terms of getting various projects setup and started. Way to go!

They are uploaded as PDF up until the August meeting, just not in HTML yet.

The September one happened 9 days ago and is still pending review and approval by the BIPOC Board.
