    Looks good! Can you clarify what will be discussed under the agenda item "terms"? Everything else is clear!

    Please, check out http://occupycommunity.org/­ We have proposed 10 goals for OWS and are in the process of making a petition for each so we can build a consensus on the goals we agree on. The first petition is listed on Occupy Community as #2 Make Elections Transparent and Verifiable. There is even a short TED lecture from the creature of this system, and then a link below to our petition. This is a goal everyone can get behind. Hopefully it will open the door for further OWS victories. Thanks!

      Seems like there should be something about outsourcing of jobs due to neoliberal economic policies.... Our economy crashed because we don't produce anything any longer

    What is this meeting space? Is it indoors...outdoors? The google map only shows a sushi rest. and a deli at that address...

      The meeting space is indoors, and there should be signage or people pointing the way.

      Any other suggestions, pre-meeting?

      Hi Alex & Eric - Yep! There is unofficial outreach going on as we speak with groups like FUREE. At the General Assembly an Outreach working group will likely crystallize that will help coordinate further efforts.

    I'm a full-time college student. Will GA's be scheduled on weekends as well? Will anyone be posting minutes or notes, so those interested in joining works groups can keep abreast of developments?

      Great question, Rob. Send an email to [masked] - an unofficial but well-connected account - and see if you get a response there. Minutes are being posted on a larger OWS wiki page, but the Brooklyn group is brand new and working on establishing a similar infrastructure for their minutes.
