both groups (board and SC) will take care for the regarding agendas
separately, please publish the agendas one week in advance on the list,
so we can figure out which issues we have to solve together and
therefore how many time we have to plan as a combined group.

In general

The whole Cos-CoB consists of four parts:
  1. Q&A: Question and answer session for all who are interested in (whole community) in one evening
  2. Board meeting
  3. SC meeting
  4. CoS-CoB meeting on demand: all steering committee and board members


Roadmap for all Q&As:
  1. Collect all questions in the beginning on a board
  2. Group them right afterwards
  3. Allocate a time slot per group
  4. Care for a list of speakers
  5. Chairman: President or Vice President


The agenda of the CoS-CoB will be drafted on the last board meeting before the CoS-CoB and send with suggestions to the internal list by the secretary a week before the CoS-CoB meeting. At the board meeting the morning before the CoS-CoB this agenda might be extended with things popping up on the Q&A.
