I'd like to ask that participants in this forum include a photo in their profile. For the moment, I believe this is the only means -- outside of creating an affinity group, or otherwise assigning a representative -- for people who must work during hours when committee meetings and/or the GA are held, to participate in the discussion with other occupation members in general. Obviously, further effort would be needed to bring anything mentioned here to genuine concensus, but this does provide a sounding board to work out the kinks in some of our ideas until the time comes when they can be presented.
My reasoning is that it will be easier to identify the individual to whom we're speaking here, when we all do meet at CH, and we can continue the discussion(s) in person. It also provides greater transparency and accountability, while (IMO) offering more credibility to the person.
I understand some have privacy concerns, and will opt out. This is a personal request, not one that's travelled through committee. It's purely voluntary.
