Agenda[edit]

Introductions[edit]

Because of a recent ransomware attack, the Seattle Public Libraries lack WiFi service.[1] Because of this, we ask that Zoom attendees keep their video off and audio muted except when talking to the meeting. We will do a round of introductions so that we can get to see and hear everybody.

Activities reports and questions[edit]

There are four activity reports since 2020:

Please read through the reports and please ask any questions at the meeting. Questions can also address other Cascadia Wikimedian activities not covered by the reports.

Election of Board of Directors[edit]

Since the terms of all board members expired during the course of the pandemic, we need to elect new board members. We need a minimum of four (4) and not more than nine (9) directors.

After the members elect the Board of Directors, the board will choose its officers at a later time.

Those who wish to stand for election to the Board of Directors[edit]

Members may also self-nominate, or nominate another member present during the meeting.

Other business[edit]

Announcements[edit]

Notes[edit]

  1. This is a precaution to deal with Zoombombing or other disruptive activity, which would enable us to boot someone from the meeting and then to not automatically admit them should they connect back into the meeting. This is probably unnecessary, but some of us have encountered this during online wikiconferences.
