Being a coordinating council member requires roughly 1-2 hours a week of meetings with the other council members and depending on what is happening at the Collective Agency at least 1-2 hours a week of reviewing correspondence between different groups, members, and potential members.

I have thoroughly enjoyed working as a coordinating council member because it engages a different part of my brain that involves solving complex social and community issues as they arise. The ever changing and adaptive nature of the Collective Agency ensures a fresh set of issues each week that keeps council meetings lively and interesting. With the flexibility of the Collective Agency there is always an opportunity to bring new ideas to fruition. It is incredibly gratifying to work on issues that enrich a larger community.
