announcement on Paul/Sydney; mediation has happened, there has been an agreement and press release
he did what we wanted,
3.mailed IRS to cancel the employee number
now we're announcing; he may want to speak?
ask if we want to speak
(interrupt for Introductions)
back to agenda items:
proposal: reverse order of group discussion
our proposal for tonight
picking facilitation roles
the announcement will be one of the first things on the agenda
mike: concern that Paul is on the premises?
will: indiv stack?
daniel: tried that last time….
jorge: wg stack/indiv stack?
daniel: tried that last time…
ren: you should have check ins to minimize the impact of this one person…
will: that was a problem last time
CT: consider the metafacilitator; it's not app for a GA to have to address this
allison describes rev attempts to de escalate
will: waste of time to talk about this
h2: don't forget to address their concerns!
- mike sums up*
allison: why are they even announcing?
daniel: they…they just are.
mike: the problem is when process is overwhelmed by reactions.
so what do we do?
CT: couple options; we could set up an advocate or committee of some kind
or say "it should be taken up at the next public finance committee"
mike: so, we would let them announce w/o pre-emption and then say that the finance committee can have a public meeting later to deal with this…
daniel: facilitators should remind ppl that they should disc finance issues at their mtg
finance should be sure to announce their mtg
mike: okay, so they're set. next!
proposal: reverse clarifying Q's and group discussions
mike clarifies the proposal
CT: remember, GA is for content, and this mtg is for process.
h2: is there an evaluation at the end?
will: we need feeling checks!
mike: we would…in warmer weather…
allison: we needs rituals
-->back to consensus; the proposal is PASSED!!!!
next: discussing our proposal for tonight
allison: we used to address concerns to ppl before going on;
propose that we do that before amendments!
mike: so if you give a proposal and I have a concern, you would turn around and list them?
allison: yes but first we would collect them into a list and recap them
so proposal, groups, conc, sup, recap concerns, THEN amendments?
discussion about reciting concerns: the proposer will recap concerns
at least tonight, the FWG proposer will recap concerns before amendments
