These meetings are for us to come together and review what we have been up to in the previous month and plan our upcoming events over some nice food and drink :) They are normally on the first Wednesday of the month.
We will be planning our two upcoming events this month. Pupil privacy and school census (https://www.meetup.com/ORG-Brighton/events/239491704/) on the 9th and a hustings on the 16th for local candidates in the general election.
However there will be time for people to discuss any other ideas they have. This is because we use the Lean Coffee format (http://agilecoffee.com/leancoffee/) which is democratic, easy and fun. We would also love to hear from anyone who could help with filming our events!
We hope to see you at the meeting - we chose the Fountain Head as its central, serves nice food and drink and is accessible. If you have any suggestions for venues for future events just let us know!
Hey! Do I have to attend these meetings to have a say in what our group does?
No. You can suggest anything at any time by contacting your organisers direct here on Meetup (Damian (https://www.meetup.com/ORG-Brighton/members/216948691/) and Obs (https://www.meetup.com/ORG-Brighton/members/222091689/)), by email: firstname.lastname@example.org or Twitter: @ORGBrighton (https://twitter.com/ORGBrighton). You can also start a discussion with the whole group via our email list: https://lists.openrightsgroup.org/mailman/listinfo/org-brighton (the meetings minutes and actions will be shared via this list too).
Anything proposed via these methods by people who cannot make the meeting will be proposed on your behalf by the organisers.
