Debating amongst ourselves at the our monthly get together is the mechanism for re-inforcing each other, generating new projects, and in so doing opening opportunities for people to act inside and outside of their own domestic sphere. Which brings me to the point that we need leaders and people to develop their leadership skills amongst us and in my opinion we should not be too heavily dependent on any single individuals.
I have enjoyed copping out of chairing our meetings and letting Ross and Gill take on the responsibility every month but we are now in the situation where they have both been so successful some other individuals have the chance to develop their leadership skills in the safety of our TT monthly meeting. There are a number of people who with some encouragement could do this. Therefore; I suggest that we make a rota for different people to sign up to facilitate the monthly meeting.
We have the standing Agenda and usual format that gives the meeting its basic structure and we are after all friends working together, not competing for control. To begin this process we could put up a calendar for people to sign up to facilitate the meeting, giving everybody the chance to have a go without the daunting possibility that they might end up feeling responsible for chairing the meeting for the next five years.
This would be a different function from the chair person of the incorporated company who would have to formally chair the company AGM.
