Hello Loopy, welcome. I am new here too. I am opening a 501c3 sustainability center ~ sustainable agriculture, relationships, communication, finance, a CSA, etc. (waiting for the application to be approved). I took the permie course a while back, I teach non violent communication. I am a board (bored? member with an old paradigm organization and would love to introduce some new by-laws) member for a local youth agency, and am in the process of creating a permaculture principles based board and structure and guidelines for meetings and working with staff, volunteers and interns for the new 501c3. What can you share with me that will support these goals? What have you found that works and what can you, from expereince, help me sidestep.

Thank you in advance for sharing your experiences, and taking the time to contribute to our collective well being.

PS - I am creating a reference library for the 501c3 and your book would be a perfect addition.
That's my roommate. He's kinda weird, but he always pays his half of the rent. And he gave me this tiny ad:
