Kate,

I'll document meetings moving forward and will discuss your suggestions. :)

Aloha,
Jim

> Just a few items on the docket that probably fall within the committee scope

>
> Marketing - we have agreed that we need it, this should be a committee
> driven initiative, otherwise, it's tasked to staff and lacks community input
> or participation
> Social Media - linkedin, twitter, blog, feed - I know these are managed by
> you, Jim, but considering we are looking at expanding our outreach, is there
> any statistics or other opportunities to connect OWASP with some other
> groups?
> Newsletter - as an individual tasked with this, I have not been very
> successful.  I would love to see the committee, by design, be the drivers
> for this
> Communication - is the same message being communicated across all channels?
> Yes, probably in line with the marketing initiative.
>
> I would suggest giving meetings a try for a few months and see what happens.
> Maybe it will be a fail and maybe great and wondrous things will arise!  At
> least we can say we tried - notice I put in the "we" cause I'm here to help
> set it all up.

> Connections committee, do we need more meetings?
