EDIT: About staff positions
I feel really lucky and happy to have been getting to know some really wonderful, intelligent and kind momma's here at cafemom, especially at this group (AMP)
I love what we are aiming to do here:
We are all mom's that will support each other in following our hearts as we get pulled away from some mainstream ways that may not be in line with how much we feel children or other issues matter.
There are all kinds of cultures that children can totally thrive in, its about living in a way that feels authentic to us or fits our inclinations or desires.
Anyway, I am so excited about this group and its potential, and well, I am wanting to have a busy period with staff as we reorganize and brainstorm details involving the administrative kind of work for this group.
Everybody that is presently on staff are wonderful people but when I signed them up it was when I was in a more laid back mood, thinking about my future absences and wanting to be covered. I feel its unfair to make demands on the present staff under these circumstances especially if they have certain time constraints at this time. So I am going to start over, and demote all staff, I have no issue or problems with any of them, as I said they are wonderful people and represent a wonderful diversity of alternative ways and a continuum on the mainstream with alternative. I think this is a great idea because that means that staff represents the membership and that their is bound to be someone on staff that a member can identify with.
The only criteria to be on staff is to be excited about this group and have the time and energy to help me out with the organizing and brainstorming process, so PM me if your interested in being on staff. Everyone who was on staff is welcome to be staff again, and if it is ever too much one can ask to be demoted and there will be no hard feelings, I understand.
what makes this group thrive is the membership, folks making posts and replies. so even if your not ready for role of being on staff, I am grateful for what you do do!
Contact me if you like to be admin and this offer stands. :)
EDIT: I'm very happy with the remodel and the staff team I have, since I increased duties for staff, some staff needed to temporarily step down, they are always welcome back to staff position, just ask. And truly, the staff here are not perfect experts on parenting, we are mom just trying to do the best we can, and believe this group is very important and doing all we can to help it thrive. Staff helps with behind the scene stuff that helps this group and the membership stuff that all of us do here to help this group.
any interest in helping with both areas for this group, feel free to inquire.
