Proposal to create template replies for emails coming from VJO that have a friendly language and are inviting - this is our opportunity to get to know someone and help place them into the right team. Whilst we do have processes, it should be more than just asking for their resume - this is a scenario where we shouldn’t go straight into formal business mode. We need our replies to be heart-felt, upbeat and positive - at the end of day they are asking to join our community, and it’s our responsibility to help find their place within it.

Update: FftF2020 Re-engage & Re-ignite - Content Manager Exam initiative. Laura and Chris are working on a document over the What, Why, Who and How. We are now working the information for the first deadline: ‘February 21, 2020 - Further define the concept and present a feasibility study’. They have started to define the exam content at Subject level and the possible format for the exam and the dependencies, for example the new Certification platform. They are making good progress and have said that they will be able to meet the first deadline.
