Evolving how we do international liaison check-ins

In the past, we’ve relied on international liaisons coming to us, but this puts the burden on them to be pro-active. For some the idea of reaching out first is not something they are comfortable with, or time-zone wise they worry about disturbing others.

To help with this, and move the burden of contact onto a more managerial side of it all, the team will make an effort to reach out individually to liaisons at least once per quarter moving forward.

This to hear how things are going, what challenges or wins have they had recently, and how can we help with any questions they may have.

We will of course still do our normal check-ins during meetings, for those who are around, as it’s great to hear from them, and keeps us reminded that we are representing a larger set of users, and not just those that are present in the applicable meetings.

Checking in with international liaisons

This is the section where we reach out to the non-English speaking parts of our community, to see how they are doing, if there’s anything we can help each other with, or just interesting things going on that it would be nice to share with others.

There’s no requirements for previous participation or “fame” to share here, anyone is welcome, and we encourage newcomers to participate!

Unable to make the meeting, or maybe meetings just aren’t your thing? We would still love to hear how things are going in other non-English speaking parts of our community. Please feel free to let us know via the comment section below, in your own time, if there is anything you’d like to share, any questions or concerns you have, or just to let us know you’re doing OK!

We will make a habit of putting this callout with every agenda post going forward, so that everyone has a chance to join in.

Open floor

This part of the meeting only happens if there is time, the team aims to cover the pre-planned topics first in any given meeting.

When open floor starts, any topic posted either as a comment to this agenda post will be looked at, or as many as there is time for. If there is still time left after this, then meeting attendees may step forward with questions, comments, remarks, anything relating to the support team that they’d like to handle.

It is also important to note that not everyone is comfortable posting things publicly, there is complete understanding of this, and users are welcome to contact the team representative (@clorith) via direct messages on Slack with whatever they wish the team to look at together.

For any other items to discuss, please add them to the comments below, or bring them up in the meeting.
