There is a clear advantage to having this committee also represent communities of potential grantees, and not just the granters. On the other hand, if this is to happen in the lightweight process that was intended for this program, we must avoid an unworkably-large committee or a process that's too drawn out.
Beyond reaching out to existing chapters where applicable (already policy of this program), I would venture we can and should make use of the grant requests' talk pages to express concerns or solicit more input where we feel we don't have enough information to make a decision. A link to the talk page can then be shared as appropriate, on village pumps and/or on public or non-public mailing lists.

The Wikimedia Foundation has by now actively recruited (or is in the process of recruiting) several community members to grants committees. I think our movement will benefit from having community members in the TPS committee as well. A diverse group of volunteers, including past grantees, will bring more diverse ideas into the team. This in turn will help the committee to come up with quick decisions. --Netha Hussain (talk) 11:49, 1 May 2016 (UTC)
Regarding the TPS proposal from Galib and me to go to Thailand.
Hi to all the TPS committee member and @Jtud (WMF): I am here to gently ask about the status of the review on the TPS grant regarding the trip from me and Galib Mohammud to Thailand for ICEEL in the beginning of November. Since the event is happening next month, and we still haven't heard from the committee about the decision, it is becoming difficult for us to do the following arrangements. I need to request a 3 days leave and tell my professor about when I will come back for my medical study in Taiwan. So your decision will be important for me arrange my schedule. Please let us know the result asap. Thank you in advance. --Koala0090 (talk) 16:04, 4 October 2017 (UTC)
