Calling for members of the new not-for-profit!

Remember that one time we decided to redesign our beloved Seed from the ground up?  Look no further if you need a quick reference. Born of blood, sweat and tears, the Restructure Committee has begun to use the findings of this recently produced report to design a new entity, including a shiny new membership model.

As part of this, we want to understand who is actually interested in becoming a member, because, you know, that’s kinda important.  Admittedly, while conscription would have been much less logistical overhead, this probably wouldn’t have represented the community that well!  So once again, we’re excited to see that classic burner enthusiasm translate into cold, hard expressions of interest.

We need to find the members before we do anything else – basically, the feedback from the consultation was that you lovely folk feel that it should be members who choose the directors. So we need to work out who the members are before we can do anything else.

In keeping with that whole freedom of choice thing, this expression of interest in no way constitutes an obligation – how much effort you want to put in from this point on is entirely up to you.  We’re looking to gauge community interest so our magical Seed elves (which I will now be seasonally referring to the Restructure Committee as until I’m told it’s getting old) can start cranking out the shiny new toys.

For now, those who want to be a member will be asked to decide on who the directors are. After that, the directors and members will need to agree on the privileges and obligations of members – but that’s a task for later.

If you are interested, please just email futureofseed@burningseed.com, before February 25th 2019, saying that you would like to be a member. It’s that simple.


Until then jazz cats and jellyfish, stay frosty (the snowman). As always, please direct any questions, queries or comments to futureofseed@burningseed.com.
