Hi all, now that we have more visibility and traction-#1 I would like to propose setting up a membership communications and development work group to do things with the website and socials for boosting and engaging our membership.
This could also help re-animate the timebank among our volunteers - #2 we should start a new timebank account in Roxy's opinion - I agree... do you?
Also, #3 we could make a small contract with Eileen (web master from the summer team) to work on website updates. say $500 -she could help lead the group for that.
Yi Fan is very keen on this, she in the far north in BC working part time in the local school and has been. I would like to invite Parul - who is bored at home with toddler in India and would like to do something. I will participate as well, and likely Hali. Some ideas are to invite stories and pictures via instagram, have a members' forum space where people can share ideas and info. A modest honorarium for Yi Fan and Parul (100$?) who have solid knowledge and experience with the co-op and St j to contribute, would be nice if we can find enough slack in the budget. There may be some costs for their ability to fully engage online- imo it would be good to put this group on Lark.
From there I am thinking to start collecting evidence for a human rights report update- LIFT could lead some of this to keep the co-op protected if we want.
Please reply asap so i can call Eileen and Parul

I love the idea of re-animating time bank as quickly as we can and yes starting over just to start, sounds promising!! I love the idea of bringing parul and yiFan back and drawn them in with their fine skill set- we’re going international!! YEAH 🥳💥Thanks jo for giving this such careful thought!
There may be more to comment on but this is what immediately captures my attention

I like the suggestions. But the first important thing I would say is to have a clear time-bound communication strategy with results trackable. Without it, we may be commencing a journey to go nowhere.
