GGN Advisory Committee
GGN Advisory Committee
As part of the GGN Foundation's restructuring, we recognise that stakeholder inclusion and involvement is the driver that keeps the Greeter concept alive... Getting input and guidance from the Greeter community is vital to success. However, this is not always easy to achieve for a “not for profit” organisation. It is for this reason that the Global Greeter Network (GGN) Foundation proposes to establish a GGN Advisory Committee that will be responsible for contributing to the policies and processes as well as the strategic direction of the GGN Foundation. The GGN Advisory Committee will be self-governed and independent from the GGN Foundation.
Who is on the Committee
The GGN Advisory Committee will consist of 15 volunteers from the Greeter Community. This includes Greeters and Destination Managers and perhaps Visitors that are committed to the Foundation's mission which is "making the world a better place; one Greet at the time...". Of course we are looking for some geographical and cultural spread.
Setting up and running it
It is not always easy to start something new. This is especially true with committees run by volunteers. The GGN Foundation will therefore assist in:
- An Expression of Interest (EOI) system where potential Committee Members can apply to be on the Committee
- Provide an initial Constitution that can be changed at the discretion of the Committee once established
- Provide a virtual meeting space
- Assist in organising an annual conference
- Contribute financially where it can
The initial GGN Advisory Committee will be formed from those who expressed interest in a position on the Committee who then in a collaborate process will vote for the initial 15 Committee Members.
The Committee's Role
Once the Committee is established, the GGN Foundation will step back and let the Committee Members determine the constitution and rules of the Committee. However, the role of the Committee is to provide guidance and advice to the foundation and to select among its Committee Members two (2) directors that will be invited on the GGN Foundation's Board of Directors.
