MEETING NOTES for those unable to attend:

-attendance: @HipGnosis, @collectivestruggle, @chima and @Adri_Martinez
-created a Google Document to jot down ideas on guidelines for creating and processes for approving public facing material
-to have uniformity in appearance, we talked about using templates and/or including instructions and samples of the kind of font, coloring, etc. that should be used for Working Class Unity content
-the idea was floated around of having a new rotating 3-person Committee responsible for judging whether a submission should be published; no consensus reached among attendees on how frequently members should be rotated in & out of the Committee but monthly intervals (at every General Meeting) was suggested; rotation occurring on a quarterly basis was also suggested; concern was expressed over how this approach would potentially only allow for the most active members, or the ones with the most free time, to be in these roles
-@chima and @HipGnosis were of a similar mind that once a decision to approve content is made by the Committee, the process would then move to a relevant Steering Member (For example: The Campaign Coordinator would receive an approved submission from the Committee for content related to Focus Campaigns.) who could either post or refuse to post the content; some discussion on recalling a Steering Member ensued; there were diverging opinions on how to proceed from there; Would the opportunity to appeal that decision by the Steering Member be delayed to the next General Meeting or could it take place on the Discourse Forum?; @Adri_Martinez spoke on the need for checks & balances while also having timely decision-making and offered up the suggestion of having a time-frame (Example: 48 hours) for when voting starts and ends regarding those situations on the Discourse Forum
-@chima: we may be making a lot of paperwork for ourselves; would prefer to spend more time on actions like canvassing
-need a decision-making chart, like the one below, for public facing material

-pivoted to the Tenant Union Focus Campaign (finding sample letters, searching for who is in charge of code enforcement, etc.) for the rest of the call

Thanks for writing up the summary!

I moved it to the public WCU category. Don’t think we’ll be covering anything hyper secure with this.
