Basen on various conversations, we would like to have at least one person from Comms,

I personally wouldn't mind starting with 2 ComRel + 1 Comms, but I have no strong opinion.

Consider inviting a Signpost editor as an extra on the editorial board

The Editorial Board had a first meeting last Friday. Can it be considered constituted or is there anything still missing?

@Qgil I'd still very much like to have at least one volunteer community member on the board before considering it constituted. It's on my list to reach out to some more groups directly to see if they are interested.

Some more thoughts. Being part of the editorial board could have multiple roles.

One role could be helping with new curation. Finding news and submitting it as a pitch to the blog. Another could be editing, reviewing drafts and helping posts along the way.

I'm going to start by creating a brief description of role and requirements. Post on forum as a new thread for discussion. We can see if folks are interested in helping out. We can also share a link to the post on social media groups and other areas .
