Policy Example: Team Meetings

Teams may choose the times, frequency and format of their meetings.
Frequency of meetings will be based on the project load of the teams and member availability.
Formats of meetings include the way the meetings are conducted, whether in person or by conference calls, agenda items and facilitation techniques.
Teams have the right to determine the minimum number of members required at an official team meeting.
Participation: Team meetings are open to any community member to attend. Non-team members may want to attend meetings to see if they are interested in joining a team or to gather information or provide input regarding a specific project of the team. Non-members are expected to request guidelines from the team to how they should participate at meetings prior to attending a meeting. In rare cases, the team may deny a request for non-member participation due to the need for a private meeting.
