    We've had lots of interesting transition ideas brought up and discussed but somehow haven't been able to move them forward much. (Also, the discussions themselves have been useful learning and connecting experiences in and of themselves.) Since summer is a time when people are busy and out of town, now may be a good time to regroup and set some goals. I'd be especially glad to use the Community Meeting Process to focus on moving one particular project forward.

    I guess this isn't in the form of an agenda, but maybe it will serve as a partial list of things to discuss?

    What does everybody else think?
    Best Wishes and I'm looking forward to our meeting Wednesday evening,

    This may also be a good time to think about what roles people want to take on in the group. I think it would be good to have a written record of meetings. Wendy has been doing a wonderful job of that. Does she want to keep doing it? Should they be posted somewhere public? Do we want someone to create an agenda before each meeting? Could these roles be shared so each one has backup? Some of these questions may seem simplistic, but the Transition Handbook suggests that some new methods of organizing meetings and roles might be useful. I think we may want to clarify what we want.

    I've been thinking that maybe our agenda needs to be about how we want to go about meeting. I led most of the book group sessions because they were my idea and the members of the group graciously allowed me to take the lead. Since then, we've been using a strategy from the Transition Handbook of creating an agenda as a group at the beginning if each meeting. It's not a strategy most of us have used before and I sense some discomfort in the group with using this approach. It's fine with me if we decide to use another approach. It's really up to the group.

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
