I think your agenda items are fine Niall, so ComReg supports them.
"establish a work plan" is a major task that covers all the basic or
functional work to be done, so it might be worth breaking that item down
further into a few major sub-headings when producing the final agenda.
Desiree's suggestions for the charter seem like good no-nonsense stuff
and her offer to manage the collation of info is a positive step.
Concerning the secretary/minute taker, can I suggest that if volunteers
are slow, you devolve that on a meeting-by-meeting basis i.e. you
nominate someone (selected in rotation, per meeting) from those in
attendance. While that isn't the most efficient mechanism it is
democratic and ensures those attending are prepared to work.
