Operations Department Coordinator

  1. Board of Directors Full Board Meeting - May 25st, 2017 (at JandBeyond)

  2. Board of Directors Full Board Meeting - June 1st, 2017 (at JandBeyond)

  3. Board of Directors Full Board Meeting - June 16th, 2017

Extensions Directory Team

  • JED Team Meeting - May 25, 2017
  • The Vulnerability Extensions List (VEL) has been moved to subteam under JED. This structure change has been made because it makes more sense to have all 3rd party extension related under one team, and sites in the future under one domain. The structure change has been implemented in the Volunteers Portal.

Forum Team

Resource Directory Team

  • JRD Team Meeting - June 7 2017 
  • The JRD has defined all roles in their team and will soon recruit for new members. Sander (JVP) mentioned that the Volunteers Portal has an option to set status of a role to “open” so that people can apply for a volunteer role.

Template Directory Team

Volunteers Portal Team

  • The postal addresses of all Team members in the Volunteer Portal, a requirement of the OSM By-Laws, are only accessible by the OSM Secretary. Everyone (Site Admins, Developers) who has technical access to the database should have signed an NDA. There's confusion about how the NDA process actually works. Peter will ask information about it to the Board.
  • JVP works together with Recognition Team on possible ways to improve the volunteer recognition
