    Decision: Minutes were approved.
  2. Tabled business
    1. ZOHO – our working tool?
    Some of us didn’t had the time to look at the tool. Chair moved to postpone the business to the next meeting.
    Decision: Tabled to the next meeting.

    2. Email addresses (info, accounts & communication to ACA with our contacts)
    Our new e-mails seems to be working just fine. Vice Literature and second vice chair will make a plan for emails with Majbrit outside the meeting.

    3. Slack channels (routines for EC)
    If we need to set up channels we just tell Chair and she will ask for the channels to be set up. We can not have more admins in slack.

  1. New business
    Anyone can write to the secretary at least 3 days in advance of the following EC 

Teleconference to have an item added to the agenda. The(se) item(s) will appear here:


  1. The Header for the WSO website
    The header is the first thing you read when you go in on the WSO website and then choose a committee. It needs to be short and have the most important information about our committee. A couple of drafts was posted on slack before the meeting and we read through them followed by a discussion about the texts. We discussed the drafts and what we think the header should contain. Our final text will be posted on the web as soon as possible. A new draft will be written with the groups suggestions and shared on slack for us to read and discuss on the next meeting.
    Decision: Tabled to next meeting.
  2. Routines for updates on the web (from webmaster)
    We got a question from webmaster if updates on the web should go through the committee first? The group unanimously let the webmasters handle the web with our trust and we do not have to discuss web updates in the committee first.
    Decision: Webmasters do not have to have a decision from EC to work with the web.
  3. Next meeting

        Our next meeting is Wednesday the 9th at 20.15 CET

The meeting closed with ACA Serenity Prayer:

God, grant me the serenity to accept the people I cannot change

The courage to change the one I can

And the wisdom to know that one is me
