Marketing/Communications (LOPSAgram, #lopsa-live, etc) (English, Uphill)

  • New Hootsuite account up, and others have access
  • Refinement needed, as well as some basic instructions for use. I think access to everything but Twitter is going to end up being through individual accounts.

Technical Services Report (Beech, VanDevender)

  • Got up and running thanks to Dan and Philip
  • Dan has the go ahead to move us to google apps at his convience. If you have any issues that are blocking we need to know ASAP

Mentorship Report (Boris, Beech)

  • Still haven't been able to get with the Team or Automation team. I will try and get a meeting done by next week.
  • Working on the Presentation for the Mentorship BoF

Recognition (Uphill, Disney)

Leadership Committee (Warner, Kacoroski)

  • Nothing to report

Website... (Ski)

  • Still on schedule. Everyone please figure on spending some time the first few week of November working on content for the site related to your committees.
  • We should have beta2 done in a few days.
  • We can put gadgets under the gray menu such as ads if we want (kind of like what Google does)
  • Will be importing around 3099 members of which around 631 are active (will do final extract and import just before we go live). Then plan to email to everyone and after 2 weeks archive the ones who do not respond.
  • Also will import 71 sponsors as contacts only.

LOPSA mailing list policy (Atom)

We need to have a policy around who can send what to the mailing list. Preferably a policy that encourages people to use our mailing list while limiting abuse and "free ride" uses. Is this something that falls under the Communications Committee?
