I'd like to submit a proposal to the board and the community for a link on the homepage that provides the following information:
Who is on the board
How board members are elected/appointed
How decisions affecting the organisation are taken
The legal foundation for olganon: any charter, by-laws, and so on
The relationship between OOWS, OLGA, and OLG-Anon
Perhaps this information already exists somewhere on the website? I've looked, and I haven't found it. I've managed to gather answers for a couple of these questions during the two months I've been here, but it's been piecemeal, picking up this or that tidbit from someone. I'm still not clear on whether OOWS is incorporated as a business, or registered as a non-profit.
I don't think that kind of mystery is healthy for the organisation. The situation that happened last week brought my discomfort with a hidden organisational structure into stark relief. Maybe there is a very good reason for the opacity of this information that hasn't occurred to me. If someone can share with me why this information is not transparent, I'd be happy to hear it.
