  • Discussion of draft survey questions and next steps
    • When we get answers back from the survey do we know what questions are being answered.  For example, for last year's TSC election with no women candidates, were women not nominating themselves because they didn't feel welcome?
    • Are there additional questions to add, such as what roles are people wanting to play in the community in the future?
    • There may be opportunities to combine questions or pare some down that don't give us actionable information
    • We want to do some more drafting on the survey before sharing it out with the rest of the community for feedback
