Hot topics to discuss with OSMF Closed Mon 2 Nov 2020 1:03PM
We've got about 10 minutes to present some topics/start a conversation with the OSMF board. That's probably enough to cover 3 points. Please indicate below what we should try and prioritise for you.
You have the ability to add options if you've got one to add!
Considering that, you might want to revisit the poll before it closes on Monday, in case another topic option that interests you is added.

Notably the provision of infrastructure (server hosting, implementation of membership systems, etc.) just to exist as a local chapter is a drain on volunteers time, but is essential. It makes little sense to have each local chapter repeat this effort.
