Need For Extra Planning Calls - Proposal to Extend Call Tonight (7/9) to 3 hours.
Only 5 people have replied to the poll to have extra calls. The best time for those 5 are Mon or Tues next, at 2 PM PT/5PM PT.
In the meantime, there is no way to get through all the agenda items facing us. There are many new items and schedule we must discuss tonight (printing deadline before next call, July 15), as well as the 8 items that were already on the agenda.
Therefore, I Propose we extend tonight's call to 3 hours, decide to create extra calls and/or extend the final two calls to 3 hours as well.
Xtra Planning Calls
The agenda is building; there's many large and small decisions to be made in the next few weeks. Past experience shows us we will be scrambling to set up xtra calls in these final weeks. There's currently 8 agenda items, 5 of which will take up considerable time. And we haven't even gotten to the actual scheduling, logistics, etc. (Last year in the final 6 weeks we had a day time planning call and an evening planning call)
I added this item to the top of next week's New Business agenda:
Calls (jumping stack for calls-there's only two left-feel xtra calls are *urgent-js)
Schedule an extra call a week for final two weeks (July 16, 23)
Call July 30? (Many will hopefully be at in person meeting in Sac)*not urgent
DeBrief Call Aug 13?*not urgent
It would be great if we could get the jump on this and not take up the time on next week's call.
I propose at least one more call a week until the gathering, and have set up a
whenisgood scheduler (this seems easier than doodle - at least from an admin standpoint - less to set up - you just paint in your times available)
Please weigh in!
Other calls to consider:
keep scheduled call for July 30, though many of us will be on the ground? have folks in Sac meeting on ground at same time to relay info. Need to check time for anti-racism training, and adjust call time accordingly.
suggest Aug 13; same wed night time. (Aug 6 will be too soon, some still travelling)
this has been mentioned many times in several places (loomio, email, call) and is an agenda item for next week. Perhaps we can set up a separate call and give it the time it deserves.
