Amending a charter

Jump to: navigation, search

Policies should be living documents in the sense that they get amended, refined and improved as community experience grows.

So it's fitting to hold off on drafting sections where we have limited experience.

"Community Workgroups at work" is a good title -- the structure makes sense.

Thinking practically -- given that this is a policy document, I think that it is wise not to have uncompleted headings, so that we can differentiate work in progress from the actual policy. I propose adding an Appendix section to the policy where we can have a subsection on proposed subsections / drafts awaiting ratification -- this way we separate the draft sections from the actual policy.

I'll have a bash at drafting something for substantive changes for consideration of the current policy approval process.

Using an Appendix to include ideas for future improvement of a policy document works rather well. I was looking for something to distinguish the sections. This takes care of it.

Well it looks like we have a proposal for amending a charter. Now that you've got it going, I see the wisdom of doing it now. I think it will work out better to have something drafted that WE Administrators can try out. With the proposed steps provided, there's much less chance that the group will get bogged in the revision process.

I'll comment further in response to your "finalisation" thread.
