Follow-up on Year End Survey

  • Not everyone on the board could join, but all very positive about the initiative
  • Good conversations
  • No specific actions for the board as a body
  • Individually we do/will support


  • A bit of confusion around upgrade of the forums software, which turned out to be a misunderstanding
  • Idea: It would be great if various team share somewhat regular updates (monthly to quartlery maybe) about all the goodness they do, WIP, and challenges

AI Neal: approach other Heroes on the idea of some regular update
