The current plan is:
- Invite all the spaces to send two people to Discourse/Telegram(?)
- Have an election
However we’ve not talked about how we’re actually going to pull off option (1). I suggested we email all the space trustees with a “hello we’re the foundation here’s what you need to do” email and we’ve been collecting space email addresses to that effect, but I’m not sure suddenly emailing them all is a great idea.
Proposal: Every two days we pick a space at random and contact them via email (if possible), explaining what we are, what we’re for, and how they can be involved. We personally talk to them until they either get on board or run away.
This would mean we’d get all the UK spaces on-board by new year without showing favouritism, and without dropping a confused-new-people bomb on the organisation. Unfortunately I don’t think it’s fair to have an election until they’re all in, so it would delay the election until the new year.
I’m not really sure about this, but I also don’t think it’s a good idea to just spam everyone simultaneously as it’ll be a hell of a lot of work for us. Thoughts?
