Notes: Global Marketing Team Meeting 19 August 2020

[Updated links]

Introduction

These summary notes focus on key items and actions from the meeting and to assist with an asynchronous contribution to the Global Marketing Team. For those unable to attend a meeting due to timezone issues, please do join the discussion threads and tasks on Trello after the meeting and send your updates. 

Meeting notes

Each week we have a contributor who has been with us for a while draft notes supported by one of the working groups. This is then worked on further by the wider group by Saturday morning and used to plan follow-ups, report back to linked teams, give feedback, and plan actions by the Monday 11am UTC meeting.

We now have a rota of volunteers to help with this initial draft. We are increasingly writing our updates for team meetings in such a way that they make it easier to be used in our new system of notes and actions and simply copied to the draft notes.

A big thanks to @lmurillom for doing last week’s notes. 

How can I help?

You can volunteer to be a notetaker for one of the future meetings and join the rota. Please note that the initial draft is needed by the end of Friday each week.
