  1. Online decision making – can we do this and how
  • And how and when and why do we endorse things?
  • Is it exclusionary to make decisions online?
  • It’s sometimes good to make decisions among a group that is more committed, less open
  • PROPOSAL: We take a moderate approach and say that we mostly make decisions in person and if something is time-sensitive, we make them online;
    • And if someone objects, the decision goes to a meeting instead of remaining online
  • PROPOSALS FOR HOW: 48 hours for response time
    • Not only NO OBJECTIONS, but also at least 4 opinions are heard on email
    • IF any of those opinions are blocking, we go to an in-person meeting


  1. 2.    Report Backs – Heavy Rose Water
  • The discussion continues!
  • We feel it would be v. powerful to
  1. Follow the lead of ppl’s call or statement which seems to be being organized
  2. Make sure we coordinate among a few nations
  • Udi will resend the email from London
