Community Forum – 10m

Space for people who have come specifically addressed the board.

  • N/A

SIG Leader Time – 15m

What discussions or coordinations would the SIG/CoP leaders like to have? What help or input might they like from the board?


  • SIG Coalition Trello:
  • SIG Meetup Calendar:
  • Agile at Scale has been on hiatus.  Adjusted schedule cadence and sent out a message to members and things are back in action
  • Agile at Scale needs to get associate level debit card activated for them later, but for now will submit meetup expense to Richard
  • SIG Summit OKR 2 has met two times.  Plan to gather data on attendees, RSVP vs Actual etc… to find areas where we may have opportunities to potentialize marketing.  They are working on a member survey.  
  • Linked in page – company (unlisted) vs. group (listed).  Make the group LinkedIn the process and  get it documented.  
  • There is a meeting scheduled on Saturday to do some of the handbook stuff.  
  • The website directs members to the Company LinkedIn page rather than the Groups page.  Should we reconsider that? (Jen fixed it right meow!)
  • Should SIG Leaders all have access to Tweetdeck? If you want to tweet- you use, and let me (jen) know what your user ID is so I can grant you access to post as agile denver
  • SIG Meetup calendar:  Can we technically imbed this into the wordpress website?  Should we just have SIG leaders have wordpress access to update the calendar ourselves?  Another option could be Google Shared Group Calendar (see the Agile Denver group). Brainstorming option with tech options and tool demos.  


**Natural exit point for folks who don’t want to sit through whole agenda**
