"Who and what we are kit"

Members will not be left on their own - the plan is to develop a flexible kit or pack with which even lone volunteers in far-flung areas can approach local bodies confidently, professionally and with a sense of purpose. - I love the idea of a kit that can be accessed by any member of the chapter for this purpose. The kit should include sanctioned pamphlet/information material (and perhaps other goodies - stickers, bookmarks etc). I think it would be good if the various components were put together in a single section of this wiki - and sub-sectioned so that members could pick, choose and print as necessary. That would allow for instant access as members found they were about to meet a school, local council, library etc & save costs of sending out material (that is likely to expand and change relatively frequently in the first couple of years) to every member. Of course members who did not have viable access to printers could contact a member of the official committee and ask for a pack with various parts to be sent to them.

I also suggest that this pack could in fact be the information that any member, in any location (city, township, village or 'burb) could/should use.VirtualSteve 21:56, 3 December 2009 (UTC)

good stuff :-)

this is great stuff, and is certainly ready for this particular wiki's 'mainspace' in my view (see Schools for example) - if appropriate, I'm probably up for diving in and editing away a bit too... If you (andrew) would like more time in this space to get your own work done, then that makes sense too :-) Privatemusings 07:29, 4 December 2009 (UTC)

hmmmmm..... interesting updates. Be good to see any progress on the pack, or any pack contents at all :-) cheers, Privatemusings 16:37, 10 September 2010 (EST)
I'll see what I can do, but no guarantees as I think it's only fair that the incoming committee should be able to review the plan and completed components first (the existing committee has seen but not discussed/approved what is there so far). As such it will be hopefully soon, but will not be before or at the AGM. Will also give me a chance to finish another couple of components I had been working on but hadn't uploaded yet.
