How to use Loomio to co-create a document?
Kia ora community,
I am in charge of the process of setting up a representative body in an organisation of volunteers. The first step will be to draft the "governance" of this body, i.e. how it's formed, how it convenes, reports, how its members get renumerated etc..
I'd like to use Loomio and invite others to join me, rather than coming up with a draft behind closed doors, and then putting that up for discussion. And now I am wondering what the best approach for this might be. Have you done this before?
I could obviously just put the link to an Etherpad onto a thread and see what comes of it, but that feels wrong, and the discussion will likely go all over the place, and be not at all useful.
The other idea I've had was to also use a pad, but to isolate the various decision points, and create threads for each one of those, e.g. creating a thread about "term length" and using a poll for that, and creating a thread about "renumeration", and one for "reporting requirements" etc.. This would help keep discussions on-topic and hopefully allow everyone to work on this with more focus. It also sounds like a lot of work.
If you have done something like this before, I'd appreciate if you shared your insights, and maybe concrete recommendations.
