ONTINUED



Con: Poor attendance led to low exchange of new

the audience

Where:


Do we want to meet in person, online, both?

What frequency of meetings would meet our needs?
(Monthly, Quarterly, by Academic Term (3 times a
year), semi

What
and Why:

W
HO

ARE

WE
?


Common themes emerged:


Hub users group should be inclusive and include hub
users, owners, managers, developers and open source
hub adopters.


The group shouldn’t focus on any one larger hub but
instead have a broad focus.


The group needs be run by the members and not by
hubzero

staff.


Ann was both nominated to lead the group and
volunteered.
