Structure for writing, copy editing, posting - current loose system - bouncing around the list - in theory getting buy in from the list is nice idea - but if it not happening we should have system

NEW System: - Rule of 2 – 1 writer, 1 copy editor - for blog posting for events - Rule of 3 for hotter items - bigger issues/press release items include a final check - 1 writer, 1 copy editor, 1 other media person/copy editor/and/ororiginator of request

Amplify-other OB media work - OB radio and OB TV don't need regular vetting process posted to all our regular places - cross promotion - Have all the other media cross promoting with OB media - OB radio - fill with schedule with button and OB radio will send it to us directly any special guests etc... - OB TV update them on this process

Discussion About draft internal memo – regarding last Sunday’s GA and post situation Assumptions made by others that media was in control of the entire blog and FB, but media was not in control of the passed proposal being posted by a non-media person whose partner was the proposer of the proposal that passed

Opportunity for us to learn – having so many non-media people admin on blog, FB, twitter, calendar is response to backlash for having too much control when we were in the early days of Dewey, so we have handed it over to others now we have way to many non-media people having control, we should take a look at reeling in amount of people who have access, 1) because of the way of it was handled, 2) so we can put some processes in place for consistency

Concerns raised: • Can we audit how many people have access to blog and facebook • It is too easy for people to autonomously but on the blog

Draft memo critique: It makes it look media is apologizing for the whole situation - but the pains we were going through

It diminishes the media working group

We will not support the statement - Farhad will take point on drafting statement about we did not post that - it was not media - in control of the situation - it was a non-media person


We should take action on gaining back control of the blog and who is posting - we need to come up with a system to make this happen

Continue the discussion about the blog posting access

Women's Caucus - is going to go to mainstream media

Another item - tomorrow night at GA - french newspaper and german papers coming to GA - Liam will email the external list and guide people to orgs - focus people who went to NH,
