One of the tricky things in a volunteer-run organization is planning for the long-term. Positions turn over frequently, and it can be a challenge to develop institutional memory or focus on issues that play out over years.
Are you interested in helping to meet that challenge? PS:1’s building is up for sale. Although we have up to eight years left on our lease, most paths forward require action much sooner than that. We need to get our hands around this problem, and we especially need the help of volunteers who are invested in PS:1’s future and excited about making sure PS:1’s second decade is even better than its first.
At the same time, we have an opportunity to prototype a process for doing long-range planning of the kind that, so far, we mostly haven’t had much experience with.
To these ends, we are convening a Planning Working Group. Read more on the concept here.
Better yet, let us know if you are potentially interested in participating. Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and write a sentence or two on the following:
- Why you are interested in joining the Planning Working Group.
- How much time you think you can realistically commit.
- Any relevant skills or knowledge you bring (none required, but if you have any, we’d love to hear about it).
