Current suggestions on the agenda (mostly from @terry) Bill says, “I’ve tried to incorporate these”
See the (greatly disrupted) new proposed agenda
can we make sure that we add fundraising to the agenda
and can we change the first four hours to be more brainstorming?
To NOT be operational but to be strategic ( at least for the first four hours)
i feel that we have learned how to be operational this past year ( at least a little but-with a little less mud…) and i believe that we can continue to be more operational but we need to relook at who and what we are
who do we want to be
what do we do that makes a difference in the world
how to we maximize our impact in the world
how do we be the change that want to see
do we need a reference application
how do we strategize to get wherever that is
how do we interact with the NGOs
how do we get money/ what do we need money for
what is our relationship with the BoD
@lober, i like these changes. I would ask that community members also review and comment. Are we going to be hosting this call on the OpenMRS uberconference line or do we have other plans for facilitating access to virtual attendees?
We’ll host a conference line on Fuze, I think, because the ThoughtWorks conference rooms are set up for it already. @darius was going to check into that this week, and ensure we can get access for an 8AM start on Thursday.
As far as I know, everyone coming is on this list, with the exception of Eric.
Yesterday was a bit of a lost cause as the results started coming in, so didn’t get this email written last night.
There’s a place on the Thursday agenda to identify your anticipated departure time. Please add yourself to the list - it will impact the end of the agenda.
But, I’ve identified a few people on the agenda (link below) - if your name is on the list, please take a look at the agenda and either bold face your name to confirm, OR (if you can’t lead that section) then comment, unbold it AND either tag me in the comment or send me an email
When - Starts today, 2PM US Central time
The AMIA meeting ends at 1:30 (Eric Horvitz plenary - probably worth attending!)
Where - ThoughtWorks offices: 200 E Randolph Street, Chicago, IL 60601 on the 25th floor
The offices are about 1.0 mi (20 min walk) N of the AMIA hotel on Michigan.
(dinner will be about 3/4 mi. NW of the meeting location, and about 1.5 mi N of the Hilton, so plan accordingly for walk/Uber/jackets/etc.)
Sorry, Jamie - I didn’t see your post. But I’m not sure the actual meeting was that tweetable… “So excited that @janflowers got to ride uber back and forth Thursday to retrieve lost items” “Hey, how come no one told us there were Green Eggs in the break room!” and other stuff like that. I will try to get some minutes posted, though, over the weekend.
