Minutes from call September 24

present: s,b,j,a



Org cell conference call Monday
Visioning meeting
How can we support/committee check-in

Desire for long term representation, someone from camp. Andy still wanted to be rep when we met at camp.
Jude to call Thursday about relationship to camp /rep.
Jude will continue to persue.
Scarecrow spoke to glimmer, in august. She said she was thinking about organizing, would like to be a rep, lives close to where the meeting would be. Unsure about her intentions about ongoing relationship with wcc.
Jude feels rep should commit longterm. Whoever fills position to be on org. cell.
Someone who can speak about org, what challenges are, what we need help with.
It takes a year to make any decision at wcc, rep is a real commitment. Offer notes from wcc to camp community, involve as many people as possible, rep voices that we have.
b- what is our process? Do we made this decision, or do we bring this process to call?
Decision made at camp was that rep be Scarecrow and Glimmer if willing.
Jude and Seneca as backups. Unsure about Thursday.
Jude will talk to Thursday before Monday.
Scarecrow wants to be rep!
 spoke to andy about decision made at camp that he not be a representative.
 Andy mentioned concern about continuity, is willing to share his experience to transition the new rep.
Could Gilmmer be an apprentice, possibly ‘non-voting’ to support?
Is there allowance for observers of process? Seems like no, not open to anyone who is not serving ina role. Wish to allow for gender balance.
*costs money to attend
We will gather as much information as possible.
Amara will liason with Glimmer.
Could someone check in with witch camp council about their policies?
—looking for someone to take notes, facilitate etc
— maybe glimmer could fill this role, and learn about wcc.
