Agenda item - How does old council plan on transferring power to new council?

  • Discussed a plan for transitioning between councils. Noted that because of so many different time zones, transitioning asynchronously is best. Three important things that need to be transferred include 1) knowledge (of what the past council has done and its processes), 2) communication channels, and 3) structure of our meetings (method and frequency)
  • Noted that next week in place of our regular meeting next week, we will meet and work together to draft a document in the form of a table listing all the roles of council members and action items for a smooth and orderly transfer of power.

Thatโ€™s all folks!
