Hello Team, very productive teleconference call today, I think. While our
group may be small, I believe we are speaking freely allowing the flow of
ideas to form into concepts. As the Chair of this Work Team, I am very
pleased for this evolution and thank each one of you for enabling it. Let's
keep it up.
As a reminder, Julie has completed the one minor edit to our draft Charter
agreed to today by those on the call. Here is the link:
You will visibly see the minor edit (i.e. "before and after") in the 5th
bullet point under Section 1, Team Charter Goals. For those of you not on
the call today, the reason we reached rough consensus for this minor change
is due to the fact that there are already rules for the establishment of new
constituencies thus we felt the task was more to "review" and provide any
recommendations rather "prepare". So, again, a minor but accurate edit as
we saw it.
With this said, those on the call today agreed by rough consensus to approve
the draft Charter (with the aforementioned edit) as contained at the link
above and to communicate such approval by our Work Team to the Steering
Committee. We also agreed that those unable to attend today's conference
call have the ability to weigh in with their view/comments of the draft
Charter by response to this e-mail. We would consider no further comment to
the draft Charter by end of day next Tuesday, April 28, as non-objection by
a Work Team member to our communicating to the Steering Committee our Work
Team's approval of the draft Charter. I will also note that our approval of
the draft Charter does not mean we can not later change it. It only means
we've accepted it.
Our next call is scheduled for next Wednesday, April 29th at 16:00 UTC which
is 12:00 pm EST (note the one hour time change). It will then go back to a
two week cycle at the same 16:00 UTC time. Glen will send a reminder for
the call next week as she normally does and I will send a brief agenda as
well prior to the call.
I expect that in the meantime, there will be new e-mail thread for you to be
on the lookout pertaining to the duty separation document we've been
discussing. For those not on the call today, I think you will be able catch
up on this status fairly quickly and I encourage you to participate with
your thoughts upon your review of it.
