I know I haven't posted here much lately - that's mostly been because all the key stuff has been in the board meeting minutes, which are now being posted publicly on the OTW website. You can look there to see the latest notes on setting up our strategic planning process workgroup, getting the term going, and some wider discussions.

Essentially, all the stuff we discussed during the election is gradually progressing, but it's hard work, and it's slow, particularly as we have to keep up the day-to-day work of the board at the same time. In some ways, we've gone from crisis to crisis, and doing big-picture stuff at the same time is both essential and exhausting.

I think what I'm essentially saying is that although I know it looks from some angles like we haven't achieved much progress since the election, that's not true - we've just had to get stuff sorted out internally before the effects will show externally. And I'm also saying that it's been a tough few months, and a particularly tough week, so I in particular and probably most of the rest of the board would love some encouragement. But as usual, if you have particular questions, please ask me - I would far rather be able to clear up misunderstandings here than have them persist.

For what is worth, I have never doubted you were working on it -- I hope you're all hanging in there and that you're able to keep stress at bay.

I'm glad you're all taking time dealing with the stuff that came up during the election. *sends virtual cookies* May you encounter many solvable problems and fewer unsolvable ones.

Getting an organization to move from a strongly anti-transparency mindset is difficult, tedious work; it's not finished, but the progress that's been made in three months is substantial, particularly considering the battle of wills it has to have involved.

What [personal profile] ainsley said. It's a job worth tackling.
