My POV:

As people challenge the SC’s value and the amount of time they spend actually working, these are actually an ideal way to stop that critique and provide documentation that can be cross checked across sources. I think it’s a value add to SC members to do this given the potential boost in public perception it could provide.

I’d love to see more specifics. Instead of saying we had 10 meetings, give a super brief outline of those meetings. Who did you meet with? What was the topic? What was the outcome? I’m going to guess every SC member takes meeting notes as is standard practice for every org I’ve been a part of, so hopefully this actually is just a quick copy and paste in some cases instead of a lot of additional work. Also if you have dozens of meetings a week where updates for each one wouldn’t be practical, maybe focus on outlining the outcomes of the meetings that you felt made the most impact and you’re most excited about. That can cut down the amount of time and effort while still providing valuable additional insights to the community at large.

I understand that for privacy and in some cases legal reasons not all details can be given, but I think things are far too general right now to provide at least me any value in reading many of these.

For context I actually voted against this AIP, but now that it’s implemented, let’s make the most of it.

This.

@BoredApeG it would be nice to see more detail into what’s on the agenda next week, rather than Pinky and the Brain references please? :wink:

I agree with you, a summary and feedback on meetings is interesting even for community members.
But it was great that way too.

this should be the bare minimum.

According to their role description, we should be seeing

  • evidence of the meticulous reviews they’ve completed on every AIP.
  • Their contributions to the governance structure of the DAO.
  • Opinion essays, some body of work outlining the current problems the DAO faces.

we really don’t see any of this. atm, the only Proof of work is a link to random twitter spaces with ranting and arguing.

Imho, I think we are getting into Micromanagement here. A bigger question, lets say quarterly basis is the ApeCoin DAO going in the right direction?

I also voted against this AIP. I think monthly is the right Cadence for a Special Council Report so it could have something with meaningful conclusions, but also not be an excessive burden on the SC in terms of time and as you say avoid any legal risks and extra costs to check them.

As @rembrandt called them “opinion essays” those deeper summaries on a monthly basis make more sense.

This already passed fam. No need to bump a dead thread.

Fully agree with this! Micromanagement is a receipe for failure and unnecessary administrative bloat is the worst way to spend the time of our talented members. Monthly is a typical cadence for effective corporate oversight.

I appreciate you reused the term offered up by BB guy but asking for more transparency on the work Special Council perform (which was the sole purpose of the AIP) does not really qualify as micromanagement - you’d need much more interference from “us” imo, and there simply isn’t any related here.

Thanks.
