  2. Resources Question: What would you like operational and marketing workshops on? We want to do 6 in total by the end of the year. So far we have lined up:

  3. Data Management and Airtable

  5. Chat GPT and AI

  6. We will also be making articles and cheat sheets from the workshops we did on

  7. Tik Tok

  10. We will be working hard on getting support from Trade Unions for the sector, now that we have the capacity to do so - but what form should that take?

  11. Our plan is to get affiliate for the IMA and to separately create a funding pot for the members. Here is a rough overview of our plans. Any thoughts?

  12. And join our working group whatsapp to discuss further and join a working group meeting to refine this plan before executing it
