To clarify a bit. The Directors receive a different webex url than the attendees.  Directors join the meeting as participants. Everyone else joins as attendees. This saves us time at the start of the meeting plus gives us other webex capabilities. Mixing the emails with callin information in the past has proven to be confusing to some.

Because as I said I was going to add more context and information aka call in information and I wanted an email specifically adressed to the directors . No secret conspiracy. Just direct addressing.

And yes I get your openness argument.

Why a "similar" email? Why not just use the Foundation list up front, I thought that what's the board agreed to do quite some time back for all but the. Ost sensitive of issues?

I was drafting a similar email to the foundation when you forwarded this one so I will not bother finishing it.  It would have contained a bit more context. And it would have been courteous to ask me to forward or post.
Call in information for the March 3 board meeting was posted to the mailing list a couple weeks ago. Additional notices from webex will be posted this week, the day before the meeting and again  30 minutes prior 5o the start of the meeting. Call in information is also listed on the wiki agenda page.I would ask that you participate by phone if possible as this meeting room has limited seating.  Ew york tends to have smaller rooms. If you do want to attend in person please let me know by Friday so that I can plan

Forwarding this to the Foundation list where it should have been sent.
What do the community want us to put on the agenda?

Subject: [Foundation Board] March 3 Board meeting; call for agenda items.

To: <foundation-board at lists.openstack.org>


The most frequent feedback received after every board meeting is the desire for the Board to have more time for strategic level discussions.  Since we were able to get through the pressing logistical topics at the January call, we would like to propose that for the March 3rd Board meeting we spend a large portion of the meeting time in an active discussion on board level forward direction and vision.

We've placed a short straw outline on the unofficial board notes etherpad[1] . The outline suggests the discussion flow for the future vision topic. This is intentionally a work in progress.  Directors as you have 
time this week, we invite you to add your thoughts, ideas, and discussion driving questions to the outline.  The outline has not been "word smithed".  If something is missing add it, if the text draws the wrong conclusion change it.

We'd also like to suggest that during the meeting we use this etherpad as the focal point. Posting notes, ideas and conclusions on the etherpad, particularly during the breakouts, rather than sticky notes, whiteboards or slides will help ensure we capture all ideas into a coherent flow and that we are able to include those Directors who will be unable to join the meeting in person.

Committee chairs if you have any additional topics for the agenda please send those to me and I will add them to the agenda.
