Hi @reeflings !
At the plenary of 23 March, we agreed to conduct another presentation, with the aim of attracting new members. We also agreed to implement the new process, suggested by Alberto. Although we agreed to do this as a one-off trial followed by a review, the current thinking in Team Recruitment and Onboarding is that this should happen twice, to get a better evaluation of how successful the new process is. It is also clear that we don’t have as many members as we would like, at this point, to comfortably take the next step with regard to buying a piece of land.
For this reason, Team Recruitment and Onboarding is suggesting another presentation, provisionally on 30 May, to be carried out in the same way as the previous one. Normally, this would be something we discuss at a plenary, but time is of the essence, and if we are going to keep the momentum rolling, the preparation for the next presentation needs to start now.
In order to stay true to our sociocratic principles, I am going to tag each full member (who participate in consent rounds under the new system) individually here, to give the opportunity to withhold consent to this proposal: @alberto, @Lee, @manuelpueyo, @ugne, @Sophie_Beese, @Sarah
If you have any objections, now is the moment to raise them…
Having spoken to most people about this recently, I am going to proceed on the assumption that everyone agrees that this is the best way forward.
Lie has agreed to give the presentation when she gets back from her break, but will not be available for setting it up. Therefore, it would be ideal if everyone can repeat the tasks that they did for setting up the last one, and we divide Lie’s tasks according to whoever is best suited to them.
For now, the focus is on the first table of tasks on the ‘Recruitment and boarding process’ document: https://c301.nl.tabdigital.eu/f/63366
@alberto – would you be willing to take on the first 5 tasks on that table, as I think that you’re the most capable of doing so, or delegate them to whoever you think would be better to do them?
@Sophie_Beese – you’ll be pretty busy with the next stage of the process, but there is one task on the first table for you.
@manuelpueyo – there are the usual 3 tasks for Team Communication. With regard to the flyers, Lie recommends that we print new ones, which has been budgeted for. Although it is not the most environmentally friendly option, she is worried that the word ‘cohousing’ isn’t mentioned very prominently on the old ones, so they don’t work as well as the newer ones…
