Accountability and Transparency call - Set-up, Structure
I sent this to the email list a week ago; no replies. It seems folks check loomio more often, so am posting here and in facebook planning group, and will send the ng3 call facilitators list an email also.
If we have no "plan" for this call, it will fail, imo. Although I'm not taking an active part, I wanted to be sure the group was working on it. What is the expected or hoped for outcome(s)?
I'd like to know who will be running the board and facilitating this call.
I suggest someone from outside the group facilitate. If it is someone who has never taken maestro, I think.there is a maestro training the night before the call. http://interoccupy.net/getinvolved/maestrotraining/
I will not be TAing - I would like to be able to be a full participant.
More importantly, how will this call be structured?
Someone mentioned everyone in the group listing their A&T issues. If this is done during call time, it will eat up a lot of time. Suggest folks set up an agenda by topics or questions that need answering.
How do we insure that everyone's voice gets heard? Hitting direct response and waiting 25-30 minutes (or more sometimes) to respond to something said long ago doesn't work for me. The convo expands and expands and never reaches definitive focus on one issue.
I have an idea for consideration - not sure how well it would work:
At the top of the call, we break out into random groups of 3 and those 3 people list what it is they want to bring up for the call, as well as any solutions sought or suggested. 10-20 mins.
Then come back to main room and each group lists what they have. Proceed from there with those items.
I have no opposition, and in fact would prefer, to going through each item, line by line - staying focused until there is clarity.
