Agenda Items & minutes

Production Department Coordinator (Marco Dings)

  1. As per the rules of the organisation, every team has to perform an annual election for a team leader. Unfortunately this information is not captured in the volunteer portal. Each team leader is hereby requested to update the internal sheet with the date of their latest elections.
    1. When complete I will then copy the information into the motion registry sheet where it is immutable. Going forward each team leader is requested to inform the teams future elections of new team leaders or re-election of the current Teamleader.
    2. Should a team's latest election be more than a year ago you are required to organise elections immediately.
  2. Following the discussion on versions of PHP, mySQL we have created an internal discussion document to help with motion texts. This document will serve as the basis of conversation and information in this regard.
    1. I have added an explanation of the process and the boilerplate for the most relevant items.
  3. Joomla & Google - Web collaboration
