New Business

  • Companies paying for employee Plone time
    • how can we honor the people who do work that directly impacts the community as a whole
      • e.g. security team, sponsorships, accounting, docs, AI team, plone.org design, marketing
    • they don't directly benefit from the work they contribute
    • how does the Board measure this?
    • ideas:
      • list companies that support Plone, but this would not be an "in-kind" sponsorship?
      • include logos/company name in the team listing along with the person's name?
      • profile pages for people for next iteration of plone.org, could include company info there
        • this has been floated previously, but effort faded without results
        • maybe a thank you page instead?
      • once a month news item posts thanking people/companies for their efforts?
        • marketing team would have to take this on
      • separate page for nominations/self-nominations for efforts behind the scenes, maybe as part of the marketing once-a-month spotlight news items?
      • nominations can be part of steering circle agenda also
    • consensus lands on the spotlight idea

Review Ongoing

  • PLOG news
    • Erico and Sally are having ongoing discussions
    • Everyone Jens has talked to wants to go - maybe a 2nd hotel!? :slight_smile:
    • Plone 6 is a great topic here
    • Plog is a good forum for keeping the community on the same page
  • [Executive Session]
