- What does LNT really mean?: A value Burning Flipside prides itself on is our commitment to Leave No Trace. However, when one considers items such as the burn scar, carbon emissions, the trash we generate on-site but simply deposit elsewhere as well as others, it becomes obvious we are not "Leave ZERO trace" event. The purpose of this discussion is to determine what the Burning Flipside community generally considers acceptable, both in consideration of the sustainability of the event and the greater value to world health.
- Volunteer Panic: The event is coming up soon! And without volunteers, it won't happen! Show up and talk through with our Volunteer Coordinator about what is short-handed, and how the community can better support these departments.

CC meeting
Discussion topics:
- Planning the next Respect discussion: This will not be the discussion itself.
- Date of Flipside: What date should Flipside be held on?
- Standardizing dates for Town Halls: Setting dates for Town Halls (and other Flipside-related events other than Flipside itself) is always difficult, and is only getting more so as more and more Texas burn events crop up, and as AAR tries to do more. Having dates that can be known in advance would simplify planning and help Texas burn events avoid stepping on each others' toes.

CC meeting
Discussion topics:
- Capitalizing on Flipside Work Experience: Volunteer experience in the Flipside organization can translate to valuable career experience in the default world---but what are the guidelines for doing so? How should experience be represented on résumés and LinkedIn? How can experience be verified? This discussion sets the framework for a subcommittee to draft guidelines.
- Surveys & Censuses: Should the organization conduct surveys and/or censuses of the community, and if so, how and when? What past efforts have occurred, how were they administered and how was the data used?

Topics:
- Accountability: How do we encourage and support the accountability of participants? How does the community ensure the accountability of others? Does lax enforcement encourage flouting of our principles?
- Recycling: Recycling as an department on Flipside's org chart has been a topic of ongoing discussion, and after an especially tough year for volunteering in Recycling, maybe it's time to revive that discussion.

Topics:
- Mentoring for leadership: Recognizing leadership skills from volunteers who may not have thought of joining the dedicated leadership body for Flipside. Current veteran and newly selected into leadership may want to mentor individuals who show abilities and the desire to step up their awesome. This could be a project to be developed within the org or strictly an introduction to someone who wants to share and encourage a Flipizen on their own.
- What/Where/When guide: How do we facilitate/Do we need??... a what, where, when booklet, published a week or two prior to our event to allow camps to introduce themselves to people and promote their events pre-event. Could encourage more foot traffic and participation and allow participants to become more aware of the Flipside community as a whole.

Rainbow Unicorn Holiday Summit (CC mixer)
We are pleased to invite you to attend the Rainbow Unicorn Holiday Summit.

This event is a gathering of thoughtful, iconoclastic doers from around the world who share a common interest in practical and farcical solutions for the Rainbow v. Unicorn controversy. Our vision is ambitious, which is nothing less than to listen to our community members discuss the importance of unicorns, rainbows and all other compelling community topics, while enjoying the chill and consuming tasty treats. We encourage you to celebrate our diversity in costume. As always, this event is BYOB & LNT.
