This is a proposal, where you can make a decision together. You can start a proposal once a discussion is underway.

Everyone is asked to state a position by the deadline. You can extend the deadline if you need to, or close a proposal early.

You can change your position while the proposal is open. You might reconsider your view as you listen to others.

Sometimes groups work through a series of proposals to build solutions together. You can raise sequential proposals in this thread.

Not sure what I'm agreeing to but OK

@kevinpeterson I'm thinking that it may be better to have the things we named as subgroups (Housing, Sanitation, Water etc) NOT as Loomio subgroups but simply as titles for threads under the general ERC Camp Organization Planning group. Actual subgroups may be better kept for when we really have defined subgroups of people working on specific issues/areas of responsibility. For now, we're all kind of working on all of these subtopics together.
