    3636In relationship to those questions, last year's Leadership Committee drafted a [wiki:leadership-committee/structure structure document] that could be used as a basis for moving forward.

    38 This sub committee is responsible for expanding the [wiki:leadership-committee/structure structure document] drafted last year into a formal proposal for organizational decision making. The proposal should include the rules governing our decision making as well as a process for having it approved by the membership. This proposal, or minimally a comprehensive outline, should be ready in time for our face-to-face meeting in February. This committee will collaborate with the Membership and Agenda committee in planning for the next membership meeting.

    44 To meet our political objectives, MF/PL has to define a strategy that involves our members wthat they consider priority work in the bi-national situation in which we find ourselves, while building our infra-structure and the number of active members, broadening our human resources, our presence throughout the Hemisphere and our political influence.

    4646What strategy do we need to meet both those goals?
     
    4848Internally, MF/PL can serve as a vehicle for facilitating contact, collaboration and mutual support among our members as well as being a channel for information about their activities, perspectives and struggles. How do we do that? Should we have an "opt-in" members' directory with contact information and description of activities? What about an information system for news and analysis from our members reflecting their political and organizational experiences and those of their constituents and communities?
    4949
    50 Given the serious social and political contradictions many members face, like those emanating from war, violence or repression, is it necessary and appropriate for MF/PL to participate in solidarity actions? Based on our commitment to Internet freedom and transparency as a political primary goal and area of work for us, how does the pursuit of such solidarity strengthen our work and how does it detract from it?

    60 For MF/PL, voluntary work is an expression of the commitment to our organization and the morale of its members and it has always been an essential aspect of our organizational work and life. At the same time, there are concrete needs that our volunteer workers cannot meet. Thanks for the enormous contribution of our members, MF/PL has the resources to pay work in some important areas of our operations. We consider the decisions on who is hired and for what work to be a Co-Directors' responsibility since they oversee our operations but we also need to develop a general strategic vision and policy about what work is needed and what type of person we hire and/or recruit to do that work.

    62 What criteria do we develop to determine the balance between paid and voluntary work? What are people motivations for doing voluntary work and how do we incorporate those in our practice? How do we assure that our membership recognizes their work? What policies should govern recruitment and/or hiring of people to do this work and how do we assure their understanding of and contributions to our politics?
