MIMIC THIS! When you get invited to events 3000 miles away (or 20 of them just across town), use COPY & PASTE with the really interesting events to seed your own community's plans for similar events. Why start from scratch.... Beg, borrow and mimic! More....
How are you currently involved in the Transition movement?
My wife Becky and I are two of the 20 trainers in the US that lead the 2-day Transition Town Training. I am committed to supporting others in understanding and finding a home in transition.
In what ways do you identify with the Transition movement? Why are you interested?
Becky and I operate Midwest Permaculture and have found the Transition Town Initiative to be a brilliant addition to any permaculture education. It is a perfect manifestation of the community aspect inherent in a ‘permanent-culture’ design.
How can you help the growth/acceptance/vitality of the Transition movement? What can YOU teach us? What can your GROUP teach us?
* Bring in temporary members into a private group -- no problem.
* Ask them to leave when their membership is terminated.
* Use MANAGE/MEMBERS __within__ the specific group to "ban" them from that group as a last resort.
* Note. Banning a person at the site level deletes ALL CONTENT that person has contributed to the site. Site level banning is 99.9% to get rid of spammers and their spam.
