    This evening we explored calendar automation for syndicating our Knoxville chapter's events. We're hoping to help our most active chapter broaden their reach.

    Also approved some board meeting minutes and reached out to our transcriber for an invoice for her services and to inquire about continued meeting minute transcription.

    Tonight, the LOPSA Board met again for our usual Working Session meeting. We added a new Members-only page for Chapter Support on LOPSA.org. And we reached out to LOPSA Chapter leaders to syndicate their future event details on our events calendar on LOPSA.org. We look forward to meeting again soon, and working on more LOPSA.org changes.

    Hello all!

    We continue our work cleaning up the LOPSA website. We followed up on a ticket with our hosting provider regarding an issue with our Past Sponsors widgets, clarified language around making donations versus becoming a member on our donations page, and commented out a widget for sponsor ads (we are not currently sponsored but if interested check out Become a Sponsor!

    We look forward to seeing you and providing more updates in the future.

    In an effort to improve transparency, we wanted to provide our members and the community with some updates from our working sessions. These blurbs, while not all encompassing, exist to provide you all with more information about our weekly sessions and any results.

    In our meeting, we hid Mentorship pages because our mentorship program is currently inactive pending refactor and relaunch. We Cleaned up Our Sponsors page by removing old corporate sponsors. Tidied language about becoming a corporate sponsor and included a link to our sponsorship page. Moved individual sponsors up the page. Put in a support ticket for Past Donors gadget which now only shows 1 not all 6 people.

    Some future work might include:
    • Following up on support ticket for misbehaving gadget
    • Cleaning up Sponsor ads carousel
    • Checking our Donate page and deciding should we clarify “this is for tax deductible donations not becoming a member"

    If you're interested in any of those topics, or you have ideas about what we could work on or improve, please join our Working Sessions and help us build a better LOPSA.

    We look forward to seeing you and providing more updates in the future!

    Early voting for the LOPSA 2023 Board Election is now officially open!

    We had originally communicated that we would open early voting on December 1st. However, due to unforeseen circumstances, including personal illness and an oversight on my part regarding a backup plan, it was unintentionally delayed.

    I take full responsibility for this setback, and I sincerely apologize for any inconvenience it may have caused. We have resolved the issues, and voting officially opened early voting on December 5th 2023.

    Eligible members should have received an email from OpaVote, our third-party partner managing the polling process. Early voting provides flexibility ahead of the formal election day on December 31st.

    Your voice matters! So, please cast your vote before December 31st and help shape the future of LOPSA. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact us at board@lopsa.org.

    The 2023 LOPSA Board Election is coming up in December. This year voting will open on December 1st and close on December 29th.

    We are currently seeking candidates for this election. Any member can nominate a candidate, including themselves, provided the nominee meets the eligibility criteria.

    To clarify, an "eligible member" is a non-student-level member who has kept their membership active and in good standing since the last Board election in December of last year.

    If you or someone you know meets these criteria and is interested in running for a seat on the Board, we’d love to hear from you. Please send an email to board@lopsa.org by 6PM Pacific Time on November 28, 2023, to declare your intent to run.
