Community Outreach Groups

Which ones are still active?

PROPOSAL: At least one active member from each working group must attend a Sunday General Assembly and if they are absent, they must attend the following Sunday or that working group will be considered inactive.

The proposal was tabled for consensus at Sunday’s general assembly.
Until then, we will request a temperature check on the status of our groups and then go from there.

Matt from OWS is attending the White Privilege conference and will be talking about Occupy in a panel discussion Saturday at 10:30a.
Agenda item for next GA: Casual conversations about our constituencies with in personal groups from our communities and how we can share the information we get from the general assemblies with these groups.

Meeting adjourned at 8:25pm.
