1. Activating non-BV volunteers to become BV member.
- Team coordinators could aproach most active volunteers to see if they are interested in BV membership.
- General newsletter from the BoD written to all volunteers. We need to check if we have the technical tools to mass-mail volunteers.
- A blog post on the BW startpage.
2. Current situation of www.bevolunteer.org
- We will use a wordpress installation as CMS.
- A group was created: http://www.bewelcome.org/groups/479
- Tomawak will help with the design & Pablo will give the hosting.
- Static pages, no blog feature. The content will come mostly from the current wiki pages. There will be some work/experimentation on having a new better design for logo and color scheme.
3. New server for bewelcome
- Current hosting cost could be reduced by using a different company
- The new server will be 4 times more powerful than the current one
- If there is a concensus amongst the admins, we can move
4. Donation campaign
- One annual request for donations campaign "wikipedia-style".
- There will be a special newsletter for this in February
- Donation bar should be activated again and modified according to the donation target as long as the campaign is active
- contact a financial consultant to do a financial audit
