A final proposed agenda will be circulated via email and on the wiki before the conference.
  • Monday, Oct. 23 10am ET call with Certification Candidates group (Jeff)
  • Monday, Oct. 23 8:30pm ET call with other international Certification Candidates (John)

  • 9am and 8:30pm ET calls on Thursday to engage Certified Trainers in dialog with the GCC.
  • Revision of the Board Governance Policies (Liz)
    • Establish a strategy to revise the current Board Governance Policies
    • Establish a timeline for the publication of revisions
  • Requests from S&EA/O that may or may not require GCC attention:
    • That CNVC appoints a ‘Regional Coordinator’ chosen by us with authority to use CNVC-conferred title in correspondence. (Rationale: moves S&EA/O towards a goal of establishing a more powerful regional identity, allowing contributing countries to develop national identities thereafter. Provides S&EA/O with credibility in its negotiations with funding bodies.) (Liz)
    • That an agreement made between Jori and its members that allows inclusion of a representative elected by us in any scholarship committee that is considering applications for IITs scheduled to take place in our region be documented (in order to avoid confusion in the event CNVC's leadership configuration might change). Also, we might like to notice this agreement being extended to include scholarship committee deliberations around Special Sessions. (Rationale: supports our execution of a regional development strategy that includes participation by key players learning opportunities for key players.) (Liz)
    • Inclusion of one or more trainers chosen by us at IITs taking place in our region, starting with Bali 2007. (Rationale: cements regional relationships and allows follow-through to happen.) (Liz)
  • Sociocratic agenda planning process: (John Wiley)
    • What are the factors and steps for creating an agenda?
    • How to formulate proposals and consent agenda items.

We may also include other times for feedback, as our need for that arises and when there is sufficient time to listen to and address those comments.
