List of future topics

New business:

Hot topics to begin the meeting?

  • Perhaps we should start future meetings with a “hot topic” to trigger some active participation before following an agenda… it seems that there are concerns about winning over first time attendees to become regulars?
  • Where/who to generate the hot topic list? ** Mailing lists | newsletters | LinkedIn News ** Suggestions on the Sign up sheet.
  • Somehow we get a topic by the end of the meeting and use it as the hot topic for the next meeting so people have time to prepare.

Example of hot topic idea: Microsoft buying Github
