Welcome to PHT Loomio - Guidelines please read!

MA Mark Amery Public Seen by 386

Welcome to the Paekakariki Housing Trust community decision making platform! You can change your settings here to control how many emails you get from this group, which allows anyone in the community to read, contribute to discussion and be part of decision-making on PHT activity. Some guidelines:

  • You don't need to read through past activity in this group. You will receive notifications of new posts which are designed for all. Generally a topic will be opened for discussion and then a proposal will be made for a decision to be reached with a window of time to agree/disagree/abstain.

    • It is not necessary that you participate in every discussion or decision on this site - it is YOUR choice how much you participate or not - much like any community meeting! But we welcome ALL questions and queries however basic.
    • We won't just rely on everyone being on Loomio - all important decisions will also be opened for feedback via our Facebook page and Paekakariki Tauhokohoko and we welcome feedback at [email protected]. This can then be posted here.
  • ANYONE can start a 'thread' for discussion. Please note however that whereever possible it should be a discussion that is aimed to then lead to a decision being made. If you wish to simply make a comment on a subject - try searching for an existing thread on this theme to add your two cents worth. Make your thread around a theme - clearly marking the workstream or theme in the subject line (e.g 'Tilley Road Buyback: Legal Implications' 'Partnership with KCDC') - this will be then open enough to allow others to contribute. Ask yourself 'what is the decision I'd like to see made from this discussion?' and when you've allowed some time, make a proposal.

    • Get used to gaining the attention of a certain person by using the '@' symbol e.g. "@tinapope @mikestringfellow I like your caravan letterbox" - then they will get a direct notification.
    • You can invite anyone else to join this group.
    • For help doing all these things there's a great easy to follow 2.30min video in the Help box in the right hand column under Members.

Enjoy the magic of having a real tangible voice in decision-making. If you have any questions or queries please add your comment below with attention to @markamery
