    None
    Personal Opinions:
    I think starting this committee would be an important endeavor. It would help GSRs learn about safety and what they can do.

    Keeping the topic of safety on the front burner is a good idea. I’ve seen some issues with safety lately and a committee that could help it to deal with these issues. It would facilitate a conversation with GSRs on how to deal with safety in meetings.

    The flyer was shared with my group and although there wasn’t a group conscience it was received with a lot of enthusiasm it sounds like a great idea.

    I’m hearing tonight there are active problems with some groups such as stalkers and that is concerning. I’m happy to support this because I think it needs to be out in the open with how to deal with these issues.

    This is a necessary topic of discussion.
    Questions:
    Q: Is this intending to be a resource for groups to come to?
    A: Yes I think that’s correct. Information is being built into our website. This is new territory, and we don’t know exactly which way it will go. The planning meetings are for everyone to come and give their input.
    A: This item of business is simply to create the standing committee. If it were to succeed, then it would be up to the committee to create the framework of the committee. This is completely separate from the working groups that have been formed. They are just ad hoc.
    Q: What are the 3 working groups?
    A: Disruption, Sexual Safety and Diversity and Inclusion
