<Fazio_> Slack decision is tabled for now

Explore expanding Maturity Model Subgroup into a task force for APA re-chartering next year

Sheri and David: concerns over informal communications, the instantaneous nature of Slack might trigger a response that wouldn't occur in Git

<JakeAbma> 1p'

Sheri: What's the difference between a subgroup and a task force

Janina: Task Forces have a work statement

Janina: more meetings for co-facilitators

Janina: takes away one level of bureaucracy

Janina: Thought about it quite a bit over the past week, doesn't think it works for MM because you can't use it to establish conformance

Janina: Doesn't think APA would oppose move to TF, but need to articulate a reason

Janina: Need to put together roadmap for circulating second wide draft and plan for HTML forms

Janina: MM will be specifically named in APAs next charter

Janina: as a deliverable

Janina and Sheri: Forms should be HTML interface only, there are many legal reasons (subpoenas, privacy, GDPR) that we don't want to host the data

Janina: next APA charter will last until July 31, 2025

Brian: will be providing feedback after filtering out internal questions

New business

Brian: Two questions: 1) With large companies, should this model be done dimension by dimension, or should it be done for the entire corporation?

Sheri: You can do it dimension by dimension if you have some who want to do it more quickly and some that are lagging

Sheri: Having some early wins might convince owners of the other dimensions to get on board

Brian: There is some overlap (for example, comms and executive support)

Brian: a dashboard will be helpful, so you can see the maturity for the entire organization

Sheri: right now, we have a simplified scoring mechanism - total points earned divided by available points

Sheri: Some organizations may want to weight the proof point values

Janina: we will start going through issues next week
