On the first week of every month, the community releases her timeline/schedule for the month to make it easier for the general public to track the major activities by the community for that month, plan ahead, and to make the community volunteers accountable for delivering the expected results.
Accountability breeds response-ability - Stephen Covey
At the Port Harcourt School of AI (PHC SoAI), we value collaboration a lot — both internally among our members and stakeholders and externally among our partners and collaborators. In this light, we want to make sure our activities are tracked by the public for proper information, as well as collaborators seeing upfront the activities for the community in order for both parties to plan accordingly or make adjustments when needed.
