|Report on progress towards permanent appointments||Jon Dunn|
A subcommittee of the Steering Group has prepared a job description for the Community Manager role drawing on examples from a number of sources. Partners need to decide when and how to take the process forward taking into account Samvera's financial position.
A parallel job description for a Technical Manager has been prepared but this is less well developed - the subcommittee seeks greater clarity from our Partners, technical WGs and teams about the scope envisaged for this job; how does the incumbent's work integrate with existing groups' and where do the various levels of technical decision making sit?
|11:55-12:10||Review viability and usefulness of partner monthly phone calls||Karen Cariani||Assess the impact and value of the partner meetings. Who attends regularly? What is accomplished by the phone calls? How can they be improved?|

|15:50-16:00||Might Connect have a 'proper' keynote in 2020?||Brian McBride & Richard Green||Subject to a review of how this year's keynote works (won't have taken place, yet) do we think this is a move in the right direction?|
|16:00-16:15||What are the assumptions behind programming Samvera Connects (virtual and f2f)? Inclusiveness or selective?||Richard Green & Brian McBride||...and if we need to be selective, on what basis?|
|16:15-16:25||How do we increase numbers at Connect?||Brian McBride & Richard Green||Attendance at Connect is in a downward trend. Understandable, because people and institutions are generally more experienced with Samvera and don't send so many people to 'on-board'. But smaller conferences will mean higher registration fees etc...|
