Proxy: per e-mail (with confirmation - to prevent spoofing) prior Nov 10 (starting on day when all candidates are known). One vote per chapter leader. (seba to contact Dan who's working on the voting process)
  • DC summit:
    • chapter handbook

    • goals: revive inactive meetings (new active chapter leaders + provide guidance) - grow # active chapters (at least 2 meetings per year) + put 'scoring' system on that.
  • Call for mentors (Seba)
  • Chapter governance (extended version of the rules) = Life cycle = cookbook chapter (Ofer)
  • Handling money (Seba to add stuff to the handbook)
