Action item updates
An OSMF-owned engine for social surveys has been proposed in the recent past (1, 2). This topic was raised again as the SotM Working Group wanted to run a community survey about the SotM 2018 program. As the survey is currently open (until March 20th, 2018), this topic might be discussed at another meeting.
Some survey tool suggestions:
SotMs as an opportunity to increase membership
The State of the Map (SotM) conference is the annual, international conference of OpenStreetMap, organised by the OpenStreetMap Foundation.
SotM-related suggestions to increase membership:
This topic was proposed during a recent Board discussion about the removal of the phrase "Enjoy discounts to OSM events" from join.osmfoundation.org - a proposal from the SotM-WG as this has not been done for several years.
Board reminder/communications about etiquette guidelines
GDPR preparation update
Translations of OSMF webpages
The Communication Working Group (CWG) was recently contacted by two community members who offered to translate OSMF webpages, including the board meeting minutes, and by a third community member who sent a translation of the updated Trademark Policy. The offer of help was welcomed and the CWG contacted the Board.
Concern was expressed about whether translations on the OSMF website would be perceived as official.
Advisory Board - monthly update
|The Advisory Board (AB) is an entity separate from the OSMF board of directors, composed of individuals - either nominated by corporate members of the OSMF or invited directly by the OSMF board of directors. The OSMF Board of Directors will publicly minute, in the board meeting minutes, any communication sent to, or received from, the AB. This monthly section is reserved for this purpose. |
Diversity in OSM
Discussion about what the Board can do to support diversity in the OSM community. Suggestion to have a statement on inclusion and diversity from the board.
Any other business
Meetings now take place on the 3rd Thursday of the month, at 21:00 London time, unless rescheduled.
The next monthly board meeting will be on the 19th of April, at 21:00 London time, unless rescheduled.
