Subject: Introduction=?windows-1252?Q?=85and_?=new listserv moderator
Date: Thu, Apr 17, 2014
Msg: 100934

Hello all, I've volunteered to serve as moderator of the Transpartisan listserv. I'll be referencing the guidelines (pasted below) when moderating. Most often missed is the signature block...please include it in your posts! (and thank you...)

Also, since I never sent out an introduction on myself, I thought this might be a good time. (smile)

I've been around the transpartisan crowd for about 7 (or is it 8?) years...which followed a run for public office in 2003, where I had a transpartisan team, including a Republican campaign manager, Democrat campaign consultant and Green party staff. Little did I know how my life would change.

I met many of the folks on this list while working/volunteering with Reuniting America. Since then, I've also worked as Executive Director of Coffee Party USA, co-founded Changing the Game (a consultancy) and worked on the pilot project for Living Room Conversations. I look forward to more work (and play) in the transpartisan field...or whatever we end up calling it.

My current work with Living Room Conversations centers around a project in Central California on criminal justice reform. I also enjoy working with organizations and committed individuals in having challenging political conversations. Joan Blades is the co-founder of Living Room Conversations, and a great partner. Thanks also to Amanda Roman for her work building the organizational foundation of Living Room Conversations.

I stand for increased understanding, empathy and dialog, which are in short supply in our political, government and business worlds. I also stand for action...let us not get so enamored of our conversations that we neglect to make decisions to move forward.

------------------------------------------------- Transpartisan Listserv Guidelines The following guidelines will help keep the list focused, manageable, and useful for subscribers. Please read these over before posting or replying to the list. The moderator may choose not to approve messages that break one or more of these ground rules.

Please refrain from over-posting (once per day maximum; 3-4 posts per week). Aim for quality over quantity. Identify yourself. Include your usual email signature (i.e. your name, organization, email address, where you're from...) when you send a message to the list. This will help us get to know each other a little better and make it easier for people to connect with you. Keep your messages relevant to transpartisan work. If it is not immediately apparent that your message is relevant to transpartisan work, explain in your message why you think it is relevant. Please do not use this list as a forum for debating public policy issues. If you really want to delve into a specific social or policy issue with other members of the list, feel free to contact members individually via email or social networking sites. This goes without saying, but please stay civil and treat other subscribers with respect. Model good dialogue behavior and refrain from name-calling, making unwarranted assumptions about people, and making sweeping statements about individuals or groups of people without backing them up with facts and data. If you're unclear about why someone said something or thinks/feels a certain way, ask them. (Note: the moderator reserves the right to reject or ask you to reframe posts which seem overly confrontational towards another person on the list, since we are fostering a supportive, respectful space for leaders in transpartisan work.) Direct your message to the subscribers of the list. If you forward an announcement or article, please offer some context. Emails with attachments/links and no explanation of what's in the attachment/link will not be approved. If your message is directed at one individual in particular, do not send your message to the entire list. If replying to an individual, click "Reply" instead of "Reply All." Please do not fundraise or send regular digital newsletters to the list. If you ask the list for advice and get a variety of good responses on and off-list, consider taking the time to compile or summarize the responses and share them with the list. We'd greatly appreciate that!
