Membership Advisory Committee

Post by centrop67 » Fri Feb 05, 2016 12:51 pm

I would like to create a Membership Advisory Committee for the Dutch Shepherd Forum.

I am now accepting nominations.

Since taking over I have made a couple of changes, but I have lots of ideas floating around in my head. I have no idea whether they'll work, or how they'll impact different member perspectives.

How would it work?
There would be a discussion area just for the members of the MAC. Ideas are discussed, refined, implemented or killed. The time commitment would be to check the discussion at least once a week. Bringing your own ideas to the table is a plus.

Who am I looking for?
I am looking for people who can represent different member types. I would like to have one person for each of the types below. I know there will be some that fit multiple types, but I would like to have a single person per type. (Note that the "rescue" type is slotted for someone who rescues as a vocation, and not just someone like me who rescued a pet for myself.) If I've missed a perspective, please tell me. Finally, there is no intended hierarchy to this list.

* Breeder
* Trainer
* Rescue^
* LEO
* SAR
* Pet Owner
* Foster
* Sports Competition
* Protection Competition
* Veterinarian
* Pet Nutrition

Yes, you can nominate yourself. The nominee does not have to be a current member.

So email me the nominee (Name and [member name or email]) and what category they fit into. I will review and then reach out to that person to discuss this further.

Thank You.

I am not sure what this committee would do? Talk about ideas for the board?

Remember you can nominate yourself.

Also, the only commitment is to login once a week and respond to any discussion in the special Committee forum.

I still have slots open, as I review the current nominees.

Thanks.

The committee has started discussions, but we're one member short (for tie breaker purposes).

Anyone interested?
