I think that although the chapter and community are volunteer based, the chapter has more legal sanctity and is answerable as an organisation against as a person being held responsible. Hence, it is important that even the chapter and the community be seperated. As an action taken by a member stating that he's taking on behalf of a chapter, makes the Chapter answerable.

I think it is necessary to seperate the chapter and community as well.

In retrospect, I also understand the need for seperating the Foundation activities as well. I think it is best to either go for total seperation of community, chapter and Office or have general statements. This also makes it necessary for people who hold multiple positions within Chapter and Office to define their actions even more concretely since we're now speaking in terms of transparency and accountability.


This makes a lot of sense. It's useful to understand exactly what people acting on behalf of the Foundation, the chapter, or themselves (the community) are doing; it's also very useful to understand exactly how they are working with others. To have a record of this (admittedly complex) cooperation will be very valuable in understanding how things actually work.




warm regards,
