A meeting is scheduled for Feb 12 from 9 to 10 AM EST with Andre Costa and John Andersson to discuss the project budget and roles. The Advisory Committee is invited to the call. Martin will share more details upfront.

Antonin suggested having regular calls with them to have an ongoing line of communication open.

Separately, Martin will reach out to potential contractors for the product manager role.

2024 Budget Review

We have some unassigned budget available for the calendar year 2024, and two grants that will end on December 31. The Advisory Committee needs to decide how to allocate the funds. Last week, we decided to prioritize the Mission Vision project and conference. We will first prepare a budget for this project and see how much we have left to allocate to other projects.
