The Staff EBA to the CEO shall ensure that there are separate calendar invites for all attendees within each session, all including exact session start and end times, the appropriate Zoom link, and links to the notes doc, agenda and any supplemental materials:

board@alias, Board Observers, and the outside legal firm. Any exceptions must be confirmed by the Staff EBA to the CEO before shipping. The EBA to the CEO shares the materials with the Board Observers attending the meeting after the CoS shares directly with the Board of Directors.
The CEO is responsible for submitting both a memo and a video to the BoD in advance of the Board meeting. The memo should be 1.5-2 pages capturing the highlights across the organization for the quarter. The video should be in the style of an earnings call to give a general overview of what is and is not working. The CoS will upload the video to YouTube as an unlisted video and ensure both the video and the memo get distributed to the Board with the other materials.

We will have one Board member per quarter conduct an AMA (Ask Me Anything) session with the GitLab team. AMA’s are 25 minutes and live streamed to GitLab Unfiltered on YouTube. These AMA's are scheduled by the Staff EBA to the CEO.
Assuming GitLab adopts a three class structure, a Director can belong to Class I, Class II or Class III. Some of our Directors will be in Class 1 and will be up for reelection as early as the first year the company is public, while other Directors will not be up for reelection until 2 or 3 years after the company is public. The decision as to which director is in which class is typically made close to when a company goes public. Various factors in making this determination are taken into consideration; for example, some VC Directors may prefer to leave the Board earlier in the public company lifecycle due to the number of commitments or requirements imposed by their respective funds.
