Point1

Tabled

Point2

Giveth DAC should not pay for meat at meetups.

Tension

New movement of social responsibility goes through Silivon Valley - we should also adopt a policy like that, because it fits the mission 'Making the world a better place'

Proposal

Giveth DAC should not pay for meat at meetups.

Clarifying Questions

Please refer to video!

Reactions

Kay - Likes proposal, won't have much impact because small team except events
Lindsay - Against. Adds more complication and impact questionable.
Griff - Likes proposal more now than at beginning, but similar objections: impact questionable and stressful in practice. Ethical belief and decision should be per campaign.
Kris - Would like to see something with more impact. Maybe cut down flying within Europe?
Alex - Not great idea - execution hard. Restaurants can not always tell you accurately.

Amend and Clarify

Whether big or small impact. Impact itself counts. We take alcohol off the bill - why would this be different? Don't want to change the proposal. Disappointed by opposition.

Point3

Add Mitch as reviewer.

Tension

Mitch is reviewer in real life. Would like to put him on whitelist to get ETHprize onto Giveth!

Proposal

Get Mitch on the whitelist.

Clarifying Questions

Kris - Is this a separate campaign or DAC?
Griff - Would expect him to not be very active, but he could create what he wants once whitelisted.
Kris - Whats the benefit for ETHprize?
Griff - ETHprize is a non-legal entity. Fits into the model of Giveth style organizations. Would enable them to make blockchain better.
Kris - Will they be receiving donations?
Griff - The will actually give donations. I will donate much. It starts with grants for POA network.

Reactions

Kay - Love it. Mitch is for sure technical and experienced with Ethereum. Nice to onboard somebody with tech knowledge as first external reviewer.
Kris - Sounds great, but this one is on the DApp team to decide. Should not yet receive donations.
Alex - toggled off
Lindsay - disconnected

Amend and Clarify

This is actually away a bit - maybe by September we will be there. ere

Result

PASSED

Point4 Whitelist Parker

Tension

Parker wants to create a 'grants' campaign. He should be whitelisted to do so.

Proposal

Whitelist Parker.eg

Clarifying Questions

Kris - Should this be on Governance campaign?
Griff - This should not be in Gov, but its own thing, because it integrates with so many parts of Giveth DAC.

Reactions

Kris - Fine with it. But if all the grants are for Giveth only, could be part of governance.
Kay - Likes every new tester. Cements Parker as go-to person for grants which is nice. Hopefully adds transparency and oversight.

Amend and Clarify

Proposal stands.

Result

PASSED

Check-out

Kris - Crazy meeting.
Cara - Thanks for meeting
Lindsay - Connection problems.
Griff - Summer is for living. Excited people live their life outside.
