Members: Proposal Three


Watch the webinar recording for Money & Members.

We encourage you to use the PowerPoint presented at the webinar and the Structure Modernization Discussion Guide to help facilitate conversations in your networks. 

 Members: Proposal Three

  • Change to undelegated system, and purchase technology for real-time, online voting by NOW members who can’t attend in person
    • To be implemented when the National board determines it is financially feasible

Posting Instructions

1. If you want to share your thoughts on a proposal (remember these are just concepts, the actual language will be developed later), write your reply in the text box bellow the words Leave Reply, and in the box “Enter your comment here…”

2. If you want to respond to a comment that another NOW member has left regarding a proposal, click the small blue link that says “Reply” underneath said comment. It is very important that you click this reply button and not start another comment so that the conversation is easily followed and clear!

3. You MUST put your full name and chapter affiliation before every comment you leave. If a comment does not have a name and chapter affiliation it will not be approved. This is to ensure that only NOW members are commenting.

4. Remember be respectful and friendly! All NOW members want to work to improve the organization and it takes collaboration and patience on our part as a grassroots organization to make sure that all of our members voices are heard – even those with whom we may disagree with.

5. Be creative and don’t be afraid to say what you think! It is vital that you share your opinions — in order to create the best proposals possible we need to know what all of the members think! This site is for YOU to have your voices heard.

  1. I believe — stay delegated, find online voting system and that delegates be expected to attend the conference online if they cannot travel.

  2. I shared Dina’s concern until today in webinar training when Paul said that members would have to receive a link by email in order to vote. Still, trolls could join the organization at the discounted rate just for the purpose of voting. I guess I would rather go with being inclusive rather than be ruled by fear.

    I also agree with Susan. There is a real potential for trolling in online voting to go to that option without investigating the problems.


  4. I believe that any change to undelegated voting would have to occur AFTER a method of on-line voting is in place.
    Until every member can vote, whether or not present at the site, the representational (delegate) method should remain in place.
