    3 [Proposal]
     3The Members Meeting includes a series of lead up meetings held by phone and a face-to-face meeting held simultaneously in New York City and Mexico City. All members, reguardless of geographic location, are encouraged to participate in all meetings. English and Spanish will be the only languages supported.
    44
     5Our discussions will be divided into three topic areas, referred to as mesas:
    56
    6 The Members Meeting begins in August and ends at the end of October. It is comprised of three lead-up meetings to which all members are invited to be conducted both in person and on-line. Each meeting will discuss a specific topic and these will take place in both Mexico and United States.
     7'''Infrastructure:''' wiki page: [wiki:./mesas/infrastructure]. The Infrastructure, Resources and Security in Communications mesa will address the stability and resilience of our infrastructure and systems. In addition to our technology infrastructure, this mesa also must address paid vs volunteer staffing, office and other recurring expenses, as well as securing our internal and external communications.   
    78
    8 All members of MF/PL may participate in these on-line/in person "mesas". Organization members may elect two representatives to participate in each mesa.
     9'''Movement:''' wiki page: [wiki:./mesas/movement]. The Membership Recruitment, Movement Work and Strategy mesa will address both outreach and inreach strategies, campaigns, conferences and how and what messages we are communicating.
    910
    10 Members may also make appropriate proposals to these mesas as they see fit. Proposals should be forwarded to the LC Co-Presidents (Alfredo and Juan Gerardo) who will suggest assignment to a mesa. The proposal will, however, be immediately published on the Membership Meeting page.
     11'''Democracy:''' wiki page: [wiki:./mesas/democracy]. The Structure, Democracy, Membership Involvement, Administration and the conditions of development outside the US will tackle our democratic processes and structure -both in the US and Mexico - with the goal of increasing participation and involvement of our members. It will also review the coop initiative in Mexico and the conditions for the development of new organizational processes in other countries.

     14
     15Prior to any meetings of the mesas, members are encouraged to make written proposals to these mesas as they see fit. Proposals should be emailed to {{{info@mayfirst.org}}} or posted as tickets as a "Task/To Item" with a tag: mm-2013-<mesa> (replace <mesa> with either infrastructure, movement or democracy depending on the appropriate mesa).
     16
     17Participants of each mesas should check the mesa wiki page prior to the lead up meeting to familiarize yourself with the proposals.

     21Following is the schedule of lead-up meetings. Each meeting wil last approximately 2 hours:

     23'''Infrastructure:''' Thursday, September 19, 2013, 6:00 PM New York/5:00 pm Mexico City

     27'''Democracy:''' Thursday, October 3, 2013, 6:00 PM New York/5:00 pm Mexico City
    1128
    1229Decisions will not be made during the lead-up meetings. These meetings are intended to generate discussion and identify areas of agreement and debate so that we may more effectively make decisions at the membership meeting. All mesas are expected to address the political vision of the organization at the beginning of each meeting, in order to provide direction to the following stages of the lead-up meetings and give the membership meeting a clear political perspective to decide on the development of our association for the year 2014.

     31At the end of each lead up meeting one or two volunteers should be assigned to draft a document that includes the consensed upon issues and lists the areas of disagreement. This document will be used at the face-to-face meeting as the basis of the mesa's final plans.

    20 Face to Face Meeting
    21 
    22 Saturday -- October 19, 2013 -- NYC
    23 
    24 The face to face meeting is the culmination of the meeting process. We are now able to accommodate remote participation from both the U.S. and Mexico. At this culmination meeting, a member decides which "mesa" they want to participate in and sticks with that mesa all day.
     37The face to face meeting is the culmination of the meeting process. All three mesas will meet simultaneously for most of the day and be tasked with drafting a document that guides the organization in the area covered by the mesa. Each mesa will meet with a phone/Internet connection and simultaneous interpretation allowing New York, Mexico City and othe remote members to participate together. An hour and a half prior to the close of the meeting, each mesa will be encouraged to pick one person in New York and one in Mexico City to finalize the draft so it can be preseneted to the entire membership at the end of the meeting.
