Ideas for topics

All ideas welcome for discussion, please add yours.

  • Preparing for the WCAG 2.1 Understanding document work - Shortly after TPAC we will be launching into a small group of us working directly with AGWG members to polish draft Understanding documents for the new 2.1 Success Criteria. Would like to spend time in this meeting discussing how this project will work and what support (if any) the EOWG as a whole can provide this small group. Maybe looking at a style guide and tweaking as well. — Brent
  • Prioritization of Post-Launch WAI Site Resource work - At this time we will have most resource updated and into the redesigned site. I think it would be good to look at those resources that were scheduled as post-launch, or identified as needing additional work, and prioritize them. Create a milestone plan for working through the rest of the content so we can get it in the site. — Brent
  • Outreach Planning - Would like to spend some quality time developing out our goals to improve and increase outreach (based on the new charter "Outreach" deliverable. — Brent
  • summary - idea — name
