Mark, Dylan, Hila, Peej, Erez, Mar, Pardo, Alex, T8
1. Peej gave us an overview of the functionality of this new website! Yay!
– It’s made out of wordpress and buddypress, which means that there are a lot of free applications that we can add to it, if anyone has suggestions of additions to the site, they might be possible! Just ask Kyle.
– Also, we are thinking of adding a more streamline photo gallery like Flickr.
2. Circle of Check-Ins (the new format with which we will be beginning our CoE meetings – everyone has a couple minutes to say whatever is on their dome, without comment from the rest of the group)
(these notes are mere snippets, and not verbatim :))
Mark – we’re in a solid place with organization (tilt, website, planning), stoked on the momentum we have going this year, “most exciting year in AY history”
Dylan – it’s easy to forget the main objectives in life as daily mundanity gets in the way, but AY is my favorite community and my family, so I’m excited to continually refocus on this project, I wish I could see everyone in person more often
Hila – excited to be on the Newsletter team – I want to be the point person for getting everyone on the mailing list/helping them see the mail, I want to talk to everyone individually soon
T8 – DOI ceremony/inclusion/decoration plans (notes from last night’s DOI meeting to be posted right after these), my excitement is ramping up as we approach the burn, and I’m here if anyone needs anything!
Mar – been feeling disconnected due to personal stuff in the last few weeks, also feeling isolated in SB, love being in these meetings and seeing everyone, want to be more involved and helpful!
Erez – love hearing everyone’s voices, my life/room is a mess (2 beds?!), showed us his toys – new fire stuff, burn bike, closet pulley system, etc. miss you all!
Pardo – new apartment (I’m a homeowner!), finalized reservation on the reefer truck, got shade cloth below cost (we just need to determine how much we want), worried about Tilt campaign – wondering how many people are actually going to camp with us this year.
Alex – excited about how planning is progressing, thanks to Dylan for reminding me to have fun in this (we are bringing our favorite people together to have an awesome experience <3), looking forward to reading the ethos/mission put forth by the “elder elders”, and incorporating DOI ceremony to express what it means to be Gnomies, also worried about Tilt campaign, excited to see friends and build!
3. Interactivity Department shared the new design for the public sphere
4. Events successfully submitted! Will post to forum.
5. We need to get a clear picture of who is coming and what the budget will look like before it is too late to reserve/cancel.
DOI and Mark are on it!
6. Solar lights! Good idea as they use no generator, and are the same cost as regular lights
7. W&W Mgmt (Water and Waste Management)
– Mar offered to take on this job! Will email Mark for details. Yay Mar!!
8. ALSO Mar to be in the DOI “Welcome Wagon” – will be included in next DOI meeting TBD
Love you all and see you at the next CoE meeting!
