Army.ca Town Hall
« on: July 05, 2016, 16:59:18 »
Folks,

I'd like to run a Town Hall session in a few weeks, where we bring together Staff and users to discuss a variety of topics related to the site. The aim is to reinforce what we are doing right, brainstorm solutions on areas where we can do better, and generally exchange feedback and ideas. The format may be voice/video or simply text chat, depending on the level of interest and a few "tech" factors.

A proposed agenda:
  • Introduction / Greetings
  • Review of current situation
  • Future plans
  • Areas for improvement
  • Open discussion
  • Wrap-up

I would anticipate it would run 1900-2030 or so, and have added a few possible dates as a poll. Please take a moment to vote if you are interested in attending, with your preferred date(s). Please also feel free to propose agenda items if you think there are specific areas we can have a focused discussion.


Cheers
Mike

Which time zone would that be?
Pacificsm is doctrine fostered by a delusional minority and by the media, which holds forth the proposition it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.

Thursday's normally are no good for me (TGIT at the mess and all); but any of the other dates seem doable should you want me involved :-)

Tuesday, Aug 2nd is good for me, depending on the timing. Negative on all the other dates.

Works for me, too, Mike, and ModlrMike is someone whose opinions I would like to hear.
It is ill that men should kill one another in seditions, tumults and wars; but it is worse to bring nations to such misery, weakness and baseness
as to have neither strength nor courage to contend for anything; to have nothing left worth defending and to give the name of peace to desolation.
Algernon Sidney in Discourses Concerning Government, (1698)
