Proposal to adopt Formal Consensus
From Free Geek Toronto
For the April Council meeting:
I propose That Free Geek Toronto adopt Formal Consensus as its default decisionmaking rule book throughout the organization and in particular for the Council; and That the Council, when defining the mandates of workgroups, may on occasion approve other decisionmaking methods for particular workgroups, as it deems appropriate; and That Formal Consensus shall be used as defined in On Conflict & Consensus, third edition - thirteenth printing, by C.T. Lawrence Butler and Amy Rothstein; and That the Council may amend this decision by reviewing and adopting future editions of On Conflict & Consensus. A proposal to adopt a future edition of On Conflict & Consensus must be introduced at the Council at least 1 month prior to the meeting at which the proposal will be finally decided.
