Update 30/04/2013: We haven't had a rush of nominations (!) but if anyone would like to put themselves, or someone else, forward then please add a comment below by midday on Thursday. If there are no new nominations then I suggest we continue to work with the 7 panel members who are happy to remain involved. Sarah
As most of you know, the Hitched Baby Talk Panels were set up last June to give Baby Talk forum members the opportunity to get involved in the design and launch of The Mumdrum. Input from the Panels has had a major impact on the design of the site (eg separate forum profiles, inclusion of a real stories section, The Mumdrum Mumpreneurs etc.).
There are currently two Panels, the Local Panel meets at our offices in Camberley, Surrey and our Online Panel ‘meets’ via Skype. We are keen to keep both Panels going, if you feel this is valuable?
Purpose: The purpose of the Panels is to give the forum a way to input ideas, suggestions and concerns and it’s a great way for us to test our ideas and plans.
Time Commitment: Initially we met every month, but now that the site is launched a meeting / call every 3 months seems about right.
We agreed at the outset that we would rotate panel membership, to give other forum members the chance to participate and now feels like a good time to recruit some new panel members. I’ve checked with the current panel members to see who would like to stand again and this is the situation:
Online Panel: Dumblespud & Nina Beanie are both happy to stand again. The Sock Chicken, Houdini and The Ninja Pigeon have all decided to step down, so I’d like to say a big thank you to them for all their support and input.
Local Panel: Rusty, Stripey, Sofa Leopard, WorkingHard, Margot and Bag of Bones are all happy to stand again.
Nominations & Voting: As before, The Mumdrum forum members can nominate people that they would like to represent them on the Local & Online Panels, and you can put yourself forward if you’re keen to get involved. It would be great to see some new members on the Panels, to support our longer standing members. If there are more than 6 nominations for each Panel, then we will run a vote.
1. Would you like to see the Panels continue?
2. If so, who would you like to nominate to be on the Panels?
3. Do you have any preferences as to how the Panel vote is run?
I look forward to hearing your views!
