October 19th, 2011 – Old Town, Portland, Oregon: “Collective Agency” is growing fast, and Alex Linsker, Summer Abbott and Fitz Ryland are asking for 2 more people to step up and lead with them on the Coordinating Council. There will be elections.
“Collective Agency” is a supportive and nurturing workplace in Portland’s Old Town for people to self-organize work they’re passionate about and committed to.
The Coordinating Council members make decisions about what happens here overall. They ask for advice and listen to what people say they want, inspire and support people to do what they care about, and often do the hands-on work.
Calls to action:
- Nominate yourself November 1st & 2nd, at the “Collective Agency” Election Central webpage, or think about who might be even better for the role.
- Come vote during Voting Week, November 14th-18th.
- Then come to the December 1st welcome party.
All are welcome to come to the wooden voting booth during Voting Week, November 14-18. “Collective Agency” is open to the public 9am to 5pm, Monday-Friday, and will be specially open for voting until 8pm Friday, when votes will be publicly counted. Each person can vote for two representative positions: a paid member, and a non-member. Ballots can also be mailed.
“Why be on the Coordinating Council?” asks Fitz Ryland, a current Coordinating Council member. “Do things you’re passionate about. Help others do what they’re passionate about, and good things will come.”
