What is the purpose of this meeting?

Announced on general list
1) to get participation
2) because it is not certain Board list is properly set up,
and in priority of things to be done, I've not got round to
learning that yet.

I wish.?? No, it was announced it is on slack.

I can understand the desire to have it on a text medium to have a
transcript produced automatically but don't understand the switch away
from open fora.

Virtual meeting open to Linux-Ottawa list members. If you have items
you want added to the agenda, please send to nashjc _at_ ncf.ca or
tug.williams _at_ gmail.com.

Meeting will be on oclug.slack.com. (And, yes, we prefer fully open
source solution -- see "volunteers" below!)

?????? - need to record AGM (JN is preparing a draft)
???????????????? - Current bank signing officers are Scott Murphy, John Nash and
???????????????????? Ian Gorman. Should we add to the list?

- Need for volunteers to take on some specific tasks. Do we want to be ???? more focused in asking people to do something limited i.e., they can ???? agree to just a particular task. However, it would be good to have

???? says they will do something then disappears.

???????????????????? and run, and to find suitable venue
