Diversity policy sponsorship requirements
Alice, Elspeth and Sarah are working on an outline document that includes guidelines to follow and suggestions for teams to use. LA would not require a certain percentage of attendees to be from any kind of minority, but does require teams to at least think about diversity issues and try to diversify the attendee portfolio.
Michael suggests co-opting Lana as well.
Michael has been working on a document will run his draft by Elspeth before sharing it with the rest of the council.
In progress. Peter wants to re-visit access control and make it less awful.
Insurance query re HackerSpaces; machinery accident cover etc?
John is waiting for more info from HackerSpaces.

Motion: To in principle accept WordCamp to run as an LA subcommittee under the subcommittee guidelines.
Proposed: Peter. Seconded: Michael. Carried unanimously.
Discussion of any items that provide relevant information to the council and which might generate motions for next meeting or new action items.
Michael says that Sarah Stokely and James Purser are interested in being on the media team. The team should initially work on liaising with the LCA team to see where they're at and maybe see how to get more media coverage for the conference and document processes.
