How much visibility is there in the work that the senate does do? Absolutely none. No reporting, no feedback, no nothing.AndYou need to take your needs to a senator as these are senate decisions. I have suggested to you quite a few times that you take your suggestions to your senator and if you do they aren't making it into the senate as I can only recall one that made it through to our senate.
Maybe you should join the senate next term and see how much work it is behind the scenes.
(from http://forum.geocaching.com.au/viewtopi ... 24&t=19148)The role of Senator is not onerous and decisions are only likely to be taken a few times a year.
How much visibility is there in the background work that GCA does do for the Australian Geocaching community? Absolutely none again.
The senator system needs to start selling and promoting itself more. GCA needs to organize itself better to take advantages of the (legal and social) system. Setup a structure in which people can see who/what/where with regards to roles and responsibilities. And publish that stuff, report about it. Have a quarterly status report on what the senate did and what GCA did and publish it.
If you want to have real-life open-source project examples of what how it can work and what you can do which you can use as a reference model, please do let me know, either public here or private via email.
