    One thought that has always occurred to me, is that generally a minimum number of people needed to achieve a working effective collaboration in any committee or community organisation would be at least 6 active members... this spreads the load, allows wider input of ideas, and brings a greater skill base together, and hinders the "closed shop" mentality It can also be a good time to be quite strategic about the people you need to recruit in terms of the qualities and skills -bookkeeping accountancy skills, administrative skills, legal expertise, community development expertise, marketing and copy writing skills,media and social networking skills, lobbying and public speaking... and a resident comedian just to keep you all sane and laughing !

    Often people are reluctant to put up their hand to volunteer for an ongoing role.. but may be interested in joining in for a specific short term campaign/events small task focussed working groups might help - also communicating communicating oh yes communicating !

    To be honest every person who vapes has the ability to advocate for vaping, but there is added strength and synergy when you collaborate and communicate with others .. Cheers
    It's been a long time since I've stepped into this forum...so hello again!
    The new Board of the NNA AU is keen to go up to at least 5 members. But not too quickly. It's always a balance between getting enough people to do the work without making things unnecessarily complex. We all do this in our spare time, unpaid, a job that often cops a lot of flak, so having to spend more time on internal organisation of a group that's too big is to be avoided.
    The new emphasis is on bringing people together, getting more people involved, an increase in transparency, communication and openness. Nico has been absolutely instrumental in doing this, without her willingness to step up and cop the shit she has we would not be where we are today.
    We are at 4 members now for the first time and it's working really well. There's a new energy of putting the past behind us and concentrating on fighting for the rights of all vapers, with more consultation of the community.
    That's it for now. I'm hopeful that our new approach and Board will be received on AVF with a willingness to put old stuff aside and an openness to communication and new beginnings.
