Scala Center Advisory Board planning

The Scala Center Advisory Board

Purpose

This repository documents the process and activities of the Scala Center Advisory Board, the body which makes recommendations on the activities of the Scala Center, under the provisions of the Scala Industry Affiliates Program

Proposals for Recommendation

Proposals for recommendation may be submitted to the Advisory Board for consideration only by

  • The Scala Center,
  • advisory board members,
  • affiliate members, or
  • community members,

and should be made via a pull-request adding a new Markdown file to the proposals directory. The proposal should be assigned the next available Scala Center Proposal (SCP) number in sequence, and the file should be named nnn-<description>.md, where nnn is the SCP number, padded with zeroes, and <description> is a concise, lower-case, dash-separated description of the proposal.

Proposals should follow the format and sections laid out in the template proposal, and should be concise enough to fit on a single side of paper if printed out.

Recommendations

Once a proposal has been adopted by the Advisory Board, it will become a recommendation, and should be copied, noting any amendments, into the recommendations directory.

Invitations

For reference, invitations sent to each Advisory Board representative are included in the invitations directory.

Agendas

Agendas for each Advisory Board meeting shall be made available online at least five days before the meeting takes place, and shall reside in the agendas directory, using the same naming scheme as the minutes.

Minutes

The minutes of the Scala Center shall be written up by the secretary after each meeting, and made available shortly afterwards in the minutes directory, under the filename xxx-yyyy-qz.md, where xxx represents the meeting number, yyyy represents the year and z represents the quarter (1, 2, 3 or 4).

Contributions

Contributions may be made to this repository, however the documents here represent a record of the proceedings of Advisory Board meetings, so only immaterial changes such as spelling corrections and reformatting will be accepted.
