  1. Annual report
    • This was discussed and added to during the meeting. A draft by L. was put out by email link at the end of the meeting.
    • As part of the annual report there was discussion about membership count, which pointed to the increased international participation this past year, including the use of Telegram for more non-English participation and new members who are mainly Chinese and Japanese editors.
  2. Funds for the 2022 conference proposal preparation were discussed, this was deferred to the next meeting with a suggestion that the governance team assess what payment is suitable if the draft is completed before the end of this year (Round 2 funding cycle).
  3. Brief discussion on the Movement Charter Drafting Committee process highlighted general non-understanding of how the behind the scenes representation of communities worked.
  4. Discussion on the practicalities of a published review as part of WMLGBT+'s role as a stakeholder concluded this was a realistic opportunity if the most interested volunteers could aim for short pieces such as interviews or opinions based on modest research.
