Ground-rules


Steering / Support group


 Regularly invite new members to keep it fresh
 Also include representatives from each Working Group )
 Meet monthly for decision-making about overall direction of TKD and how to support working groups
 Could make a regular meeting time such as first Tuesday of month to reduce lots of emails trying to find meeting times.
 Chair and minute taker will be rotated at each meeting
 Agenda established in lead-up to meeting and a quick check-in before meeting begins
 No designated Convenor – the core group sharing that role, possibly with different ‘portfolios’ (eg communications/networking/etc)
 Email interaction between meeting times:
 Could trial an approach – if just wanted a quick yes or no from others – email around request for a yes or no response, or someone can ask that it be put on the agenda for the next meeting for discussion (instead of trying to discuss via email)
