Thanks to Summer Abbott for serving on our Coordinating Council from June 15th 2011 through January 2012. Summer says,

“I am happy to have brought my love of education and community to the table, to have been a part of this Council, and to have helped get Collective Agency off the ground. I will think of myself as a lifelong member.

Among Summer’s achievements in shaping “Collective Agency”, she provided:

  • Focus: set agendas and chaired the first Coordinating Council meetings,
  • The right for members to make amendments: the Preamble to the Constitution,
  • Financial sustainability in the early months: led the wording of the original “Volunteer or Paid” policy.

Council members Alex, Fitz, Emanuel and Sam thank Summer for her work and wish her the best. “Collective Agency” would not have been what it is without her advice and startup initiative.

The five Council positions will be up for election in the next few months. The annual term starts June 15th 2012.
