Try to plan the meeting so at least representatives from Dept. of workgroups to attend. Very important that the Workgroups find a joint time.

Skills need for Joomla volunteers: Through teams or in general identify and publish skills etc needed / wanted to contribute to Joomla. Learning paths and links to resources.

Evangelist group: Llewellyn would like to be involved.

Incentives for companies supporting Joomla!: encourage companies to assign time from their employees (progs etc) in return for recognition (listing, visibility on our sites etc).
Reduce barriers and improve visibility to companies that support J! In this way.

New working group?

Listing of not Joomla events: for example companies that hold meeting or events, find a ‘place’ where these listings could be shown

Community Open listings: thanks for restructuring the community openings article.
