At the 5 March 2006 Advisory Council meeting (Shannon Binns, James Cowan, Greg Greene, Jan Steinman, Carol Wagner), we came up with the following criteria for selecting new members from among the information collected during the membership procedure. This is the raw transcription of flip-chart pages from our brainstorming session, and is by no means a finished product!
The first column ("must be") indicates a quality that is a requirement of a new member; the second column ("must not be") indicates a trait that is not desired of a new member; the third column ("diserable") indicates a skill that might be useful, or a trait or quality that may be positive or negative or that should require careful consideration.
These are not in any particular order, other than the order in which they were raised in the brainstorming session.
|must be||must not be||desirable|
|fiscally responsible||televangelist||stable relationships|
|emotionally mature||excessive drug/alcohol user||communication/leadership/facilitation training|
|effective/conscious communicator||egotistical||active listening skills|
|physically healthy||controlling||professional skills|
|sense of humor||fearful||criminal transparency|
|shows spontaneous generousity||ineffective listener|
|speaks & acts with integrity|
In addition, we came up with a list of specialist skills that we felt we especially need:
- medical practitioner/naturopath
- child educator
- bureaucratic liaison
- water technician
- wood crafts-person
- permaculture design practitioner
- conflict resolution specialist
- massage therapist/energy healing modality
- natural builder
