From Nominating Committee, Linda Muller, Clerk
We are a smaller group and still have work to do together….
Friends are reminded to enjoy your bag lunch then gather in the worship room by 12 noon on this coming Sunday, October 22, 2023.
This THRESHING SESSION will be centered on the query:
Can we SIMPLIFY our committee structure in order to do the work of our beloved Meeting together?
Some more specific questions we might consider:
**Are there committees that can be combined, like Finance and Trustees? If so, should those names be required to have membership in the Meeting?
**Do we need a separate Nominating Committee, and should it require membership?
**Do we need a formal committee for Peace and Social Concerns, or does it function more like a work group with various interest groups that can be voluntary (not nominated). Should clerk be a member of Mtg?
**Similarly, do we need a formal Library Committee, or is it a work/ interest group? Does it require nomination?
**Do we need a Communications Committee, or rather discreet tasks taken on by individuals (i.e., Webmaster, Newsletter Editor, Friends Note organizer )?
(At this moment, with (newly) no newsletter editor, perhaps we want a trial of having a weekly bulletin instead (an expansion of This Week at DFM)? Do we need a back- up webmaster?)
The more threshing the better so come if you possibly can. We’ll keep it to an hour, or an hour and 15 min.
And thank you for considering, — Nominating Committee Clerk, Linda M
