This week’s Community Team chat?

We’re scheduled to host Community Team chats tomorrow at 08:00 UTC and 20:00 UTC in #community-team channel on slackSlack Slack is a Collaborative Group Chat Platform https://slack.com/. The WordPress community has its own Slack Channel at https://make.wordpress.org/chat/.. With so many of us busy with WordCampWordCamp WordCamps are casual, locally-organized conferences covering everything related to WordPress. They're one of the places where the WordPress community comes together to teach one another what they’ve learned throughout the year and share the joy. Learn more. Europe and the 2017 Community Summit we seem to have missed the usual window for posting an agenda for the meeting. Since part of the goal is to maintain parity between the two meeting times we should determine what we’d like to do in regards to tomorrow’s two chats.

We need to decide to cancel this week’s chats under the circumstances or proceed without a clear agenda.

** Edited to add a third option — Move the meetings ahead by one week to June 22 at the regular times.

Please let us know your preference in comments below.

This should be decided prior to the 08:00 UTC meeting time.

Bi-monthly meetings

Hello, since we’ve decided on 2 meetings per month instead of 1, we’ll have to deal with some accompanying issues that have cropped up.

Take note that since we’re also doing meetings at 2 different timezones, we end up having 4 meetings in total. This should be ample for anyone to get involved, or get caught up with regarding the Community.

Meeting Agendas

  1. It has been suggested that the meeting agenda being set 1 week (at least) before the meeting might be too early. I gravitate towards this sentiment. Most teams put up an agenda 2-3 days before the meeting. Should we put meeting agendas up slightly closer to the meetings?
  2. Should meeting agendas between the 2 different timezones be synchronised? For what it’s worth, the Polyglots teamPolyglots Team Polyglots Team is a group of multilingual translators who work on translating plugins, themes, documentation, and front-facing marketing copy. https://make.wordpress.org/polyglots/teams/. does that and uses the Asia Pacific Team meeting results to complement discussions for the meeting that happens in the later timezone.
  3. How do we discuss and create an agenda before each meeting in a collaborative and open manner?

Running the Meetings

We agreed on running meetings every 2 weeks, however we missed the one last Friday. The meetings should be consistent.

  1. Should meetings be ran every 2 weeks? Or every specific 2 days in a month spread across? Take note that some months have 5 weeks (well 4.5). Or should we be running it on specific intervals such as every first and third Thursdays?
  2. Who should take the lead on the meetings? Should this be someone specific that does it all the time (this is the case with most teams in Make / WordPress), or can this role be rotated?

By the way, do take note that our next 2 meetings are scheduled for

Monthly chat time change for this month

With part of the Global Community Team on a meetupMeetup All local/regional gatherings that are officially a part of the WordPress world but are not WordCamps are organized through https://www.meetup.com/. A meetup is typically a chance for local WordPress users to get together and share new ideas and seek help from one another. Searching for ‘WordPress’ on meetup.com will help you find options in your area. this week working on moving our help desk from SupportPress to Help Scout, we need to change the Monthly Community Team Chat from the usual time of 19:00 UTC to earlier in the day. So, this week, the monthly chat will be at:

8:00 UTC on Thursday, 2 February 2016 in #community-events

While we’re talking about the team meeting time, have a look at this post about how we can change the meeting time to be more globally inclusive – your input would be invaluable.
