- Collect data before the meeting
- Goals of the team: identifying major issues, exploring and assessing solutions, and coming up with a draft roadmap.
- We have an opportunity here to accomplish much more than "just" what the Ford team is able to do.
- Gathering of people with much experience, ideas and expertise; it would be a shame to only focus on the multimedia usability project, because we just can't address all issues.
- Joint projects: let the community, volunteers and chapters engage in activities and projects in a larger plan.
- Some areas of discussion (e.g. partnerships) may not fit exactly in the proposed workflow of the meeting; be bold and creative.
