Initially, before Lunch, we will set a stage for our strategic discussions by asking a single question among the attendees and allow the discussion to progress from there. Some of these questions will be available via post-it note, which can be posted anytime during the earlier meeting. We will then break for Lunch, and we encourage attendees to continue discussing Ideas.
Awareness of Foundation Efforts, Collaboration on Brand - How can we better communicate and raise awareness of the foundation, and its efforts beyond the board meeting context.
The Foundation is working on awareness and spreading the messaging into other events, communities, and organizations. A challenge is they cannot do it alone, as they cannot live in airports. How can we all raise awareness, build engagement?
Simplification - Since the formation of the foundation, we have created processes and standards based upon constraints and requirements at that time. But as time has passed, yet we have not revisited and reevaluated.
OpenStack's TC and Interop is in the Bylaws - These realistically shouldn't be as we are more than OpenStack. How can we move this forward? Are there specific paths to take? Some aspects can be good at times, for example, diversity requirements.
Onboarding Platinum members can only take place at the beginning of the year - This discourages joining the foundation early in the year.
The attendees of the meeting will be discussing strategic topics as previously discussed and identified. More information from prior discussion can be found on the Etherpad for brainstorming.
The process will be for the attendees to break into a number of distinct groups, and for the participants to discuss, capture thoughts, feedback, ideas, and then convey it back to the entire group. After which, before departing, attendees will be given an opportunity to review and apply +1's to items which resonate to them, and express any interest in participation.
