Weekly Community Meeting

Weekly Community Meeting

We meet as a community once a week to discuss issues, make decisions, and generally remind ourselves that we are more than just a place to live and hear cool talks about the environment. We’ll try posting and updating the Meeting Agenda for meetings here on the Wiki. Feel free to make additions.

To access the form for requesting agenda items please:

1) Please email urban-soil@googlegroups.com and copy the facilitators of the next meeting if possible. Some facilitators have their group email set to digest mode. Facilitators are announced in each meeting and the schedule is also here

2) Please put [Agenda Request] in the subject line so we can find it easily.

3) Like the space request form, we suggest filling out the following template in the email, which is the same as the google doc.

What agenda item would you like to request? *

Who will present the item? *

How much time do you think this agenda item will take? *

What is the background or details of the request?

What kind of agenda item would you like it to be? (Share information with the community, Get input or feedback, Continue a discussion, Make a decision):

Useful Reminders for Note Takers:

The community has consensed:

1) Initial agenda items for the upcoming meeting will be identified at the end of each community meeting, and will be noted in the minutes.

2) Last names will not be recorded in the meeting notes. First name and last initial will suffice for all guests, interested parties, and residents of the community. (Consensed at 2008-09-30 Meeting)

3) Within 48 hours the notes will posted on the Urban Soil wiki page at MeetingPages, then the link to its wiki page will be emailed to the USTU Google listserv at urban-soil@googlegroups.com
