My name is Ryan. I work at the info booth with some other folks. This is a huge problem that we've been trying to deal with. We've got to get everyone down at Liberty Plaza in the habit of telling the info booths when anything and everything is happening/ is changing / is moving. My understanding about the 9am Working Groups general meeting was that it doesn't happen on the weekends... but if you're saying that it did happen and moved somewhere outside of the square, then I guess it is still happening. I attempted to go last Saturday and couldn't find where it was being held, so I assumed it wasn't happening.Both info booths on either ends of the park have white boards.... we can try to be better about posting a daily schedule.I was under the impression that minutes get physically dropped into a box located near the central info booth, and someone from internet types them up that evening... I'll check on this and get back to you.To the best of my knowledge there is not a Working Group listserv but that would be a good idea. I'm going to paste into this email the most current info we have on each working group. Hope this helps. And I'll get back to you on the those questions I wasn't sure about. - Ryan

Hi there,I'm guessing there are probably already systems in place to address these questions but after a week onsite I'm having trouble figuring out what they are.
I and a couple of other folks tried to make the working group check-in this morning but it had been moved off-site and no one at the info table or around our mic check were able to tell us where it was moved to.Made me think it'd be great if Working Groups could have someone notify the Info Table when there's a spontaneous decision to move meetings off site. For spontaneous/unscheduled moves, the Red Cube across the street or Charlotte seem to be the best spots: ideally, if we don't know where to find folks, checking in those two places will work.Is it possible for Working Groups and the Info desk to have white boards where they write in the where/when of upcoming meetings?Also, a couple of questions: I've been asking around and folks don't seem to know, and I can't find any info online about the following:Where do we post minutes? I know they go on this site: http://nycga.cc, I think most people don't know about this website, I don't see it linked to from OccupyWallSt.org, and don't see instructions on the nycga.cc site on where to email or post notes.Is there a listserv for working group checkins and coordination, and mtg minutes? Is this the one? Seems like list this is more for discussion rather than working business. Does it makes sense to have separate Sept17-discuss and Sept17-WG lists?Thanks, and apologies if this is the wrong forum.Best,Beka--
