EC Elections

Heather reviewed the dates, process and details for the upcoming EC Elections, starting nominations opening this September.

Java in Education

Heather reviewed the summary of discussions in the Java in Education Working Group since our June EC Meeting, when we discussed the program with the community. We reviewed that EC Members can use a new social media template to promote the importance and need for Java developers, and to spread the word about Java in Education for JUG leaders. Heather asked EC Members to share about the activities they are doing. BNY Mellon, JetBrains, and Tomitribe discussed how they are either sharing information externally, educating their developer internally, or engaging in educational activities. We discussed a social media post asking about why and how developers use Java. We will continue to discuss feedback and share success with JUG leaders. During the September EC Meeting BNY Mellon will share more details about their activities.

Other Business

Heather reviewed the remaining dates for the 2020 calendar and proposed dates/logistics for 2021 (see the presentation for details). We will plan to meet virtual through 2021.
