onboard @bonniefoleywong

This is our first onboarding ticket, so this is a de facto proposal for how to onboard people in general, as well as a ticket for onboarding @bonniefoleywong in particular. :-)

From @bonniefoleywong at https://www.loomio.org/d/3XinMm75/comment/1142825:

> I've advised on a take-private transaction, I'm an ex-investment banker and now investor in the alternative and impact investing markets. I have long thought about organizing community buyouts and thought about it when my local ski resort - Whistler - changed ownership (recently sold for $1.4 billion). The scope of what you're thinking about is off the scales. But I if you want to discuss further, do contact me and let me know if you're serious about taking a run at this.

Yes, we are serious about making a run at this. :-)

Since you have expertise and interest, I propose making you a coordinator of this group, if you're interested and no other coordinators or others object.

(P.S. Can a non-coordinator confirm whether they have access to the membership page? Do you have visibility into who is currently a coordinator?)

Outcome
by Chad Whitacre Tue 25 Apr 2017

Without @bonniefoleywong's consent up front, it was premature to start this proposal. Sorry!

The result of accepting this proposal would be to make @bonniefoleywong a coordinator of this group so she can help lead us!

P.S. Our first Loomio decision! 馃拑

Bonnie seems well qualified but I think we might need to outline some guiding principles first. How should Twitter be part of the commons?

Whether or not we have all guiding principles down, we'll still need to figure out the actual mechanics of the procedure.

Sounds good; I don't know her or her background & how they relate to values of this project 鈫 why I'm yellow

Has Bonnie been asked about the role, and accepted in principle?

I'm based in Vancouver, Canada as is Bonnie. This might be helpful in support...

I'm new to the group. Who are the current coordinators? Who, to this point, is leading the charge?

Bonnie Foley-Wong Mon 3 Oct 2016

Nope, no one asked. Just saw it now.

Not sure I want to be a coordinator. Firstly, I don't know what that means, what the expectations are, responsibilities, and time commitment. Feel free to ask me questions if you fancy vetting me. I've been doing due diligence all my life and am always doing due diligence... even right now ;-) I have a very public profile (much to the chagrin of my husband, who is far more private) and can be found on Twitter, Quora, LinkedIn, my company's website, and my book's website. I can post links if that's more convenient.
All the best,
Bonnie

The coordinators right now are @ntnsndr @arminsteuernagel1 @tommcdonough and myself. Robin Chase has been invited but has not joined yet. I've made a ticket with more background.

@bonniefoleywong I've closed the proposal on this ticket about making you a coordinator, since it was premature to open a proposal without your permission. Sorry about that. I also made a new ticket to hopefully better frame the question, and I've started making tickets about bringing on other folks as well鈥擨 don't mean to put undue pressure on you in particular. :-)
