Membership Signups

  • Discussed the advantages of having people commit to membership as part of demonstrating interest
    • There was also some discussion surrounding the perceived complexity of the processes for signing up to mailinglists, wiki's, etc ...

Mailing List signups

  • We want to honour the transparency of the group by using accepted "low/no-barrier" methods such as mailing lists for formal chapter communications
    • There was talk of the difficulty in making sense of all the mailinglists and the discussions within as well as the general sign-up complexity
      • A couple people felt they had signed up for one thing or another but weren't sure if it was successful.
  • Slack signups at #osgeo-alberta in TheSpatialCommunity workspace for ongoing chatter were encouraged.
