Structure & Form of Event Organisations
Having started as a volunteer and working my way through different areas of operation I now find myself on the board dealing mainly with issues of organisational governance and compliance. Of importance to me is the way an organisation documents its processes and place them in easily accessible places so those involved in them can be as self informed as possible.
I believe in using contemporary technologies to advance peoples participation, remote collaboration, co-creation while promoting a sense of community, family. We do this more than I do this.
To borrow a phrase from Eve Stafford "We are in the business of banking smiles"
