We Covered

  1. Updates from Volunteers

  3. Translations/Editing

Updates from Volunteers

@sunsand187 Worked on researching laws for Missouri Kids Events. Next steps will be to create a checklist for new camps and meetups to make gathering information easier.

The goal is to spend about 12 months creating, documenting and polishing the documents and then creating a handbook on the https://make.wordpress.org/community/ site for all organizers to easily access.

Needs for Researching

We have several camps looking to add on kids events in various states and need some help vetting laws and requirements.
We need to document a process for new camps that will provide easy to follow steps.
I am hoping to have this completed by next week so that our translators can work on translating it for ease of use

Translations and Editing

We still need editors and researchers. If you know anyone who is good with hunting down legal research and making legal speak sound human or if you are good with editing documentation we could use your help.

Please comment if you are available to edit and/or do some research.

Project Management Information

So I know a lot of people expressed interest but not everyone made it to todays meeting. I am sure more people will be getting involved over time. I did create a TrelloTrello Project management system using the concepts of boards and cards to organize tasks in a sane way. This is what the make.wordpress.com/marketing team uses for example: https://trello.com/b/8UGHVBu8/wp-marketing. Board so that we have some jumping off points for anyone to just dive in and start on micro pieces.
