Hey lovely community!Registration for BIRCH 2022 is OPEN! 

March 5th/6th through to March 19th/20th

Our main agenda item will be the second part of our process moving towards a process of accountability. The draft proposal is being worked on (and has been since our last meeting) by the Accountability Cell who stepped forward into this huge role at our last meeting. The draft proposal will be ready for discussion by the beginning of our meeting.We are holding the discussion part of the meeting via Loomio over two weeks asynchronously so folk in all time zones around the world can attend.

ANY ONE who considers themselves part of the Reclaiming tradition and agrees to uphold the Principles of Unity is welcome.

The two week meeting will start with a live Zoom session (March 5th/6th – time to be confirmed when registration is closed) which will be live streamed and which will include the creation of sacred space for the whole meeting, a review of the proposals and meeting agenda, a review of our BIRCH process and a short Q & A session. Community Reps will be invited to attend, in order to make the meeting size manageable.

The BIRCH meeting will close with a second live Zoom Session (March 19th/20th – time to be confirmed when registration is closed) which will also be live streamed. At this meeting we will review the draft proposal and any friendly amendments that have been made and call for consensus. This is NOT intended to be a meeting to discuss the proposal – that will all happen on Loomio during the two week asynchronous meeting. Community reps will be invited to attend this meeting to represent their communities. If you consider yourself part of the Reclaiming Tradition but do not belong to a community, please contact us. This process is not intended to exclude any voices, but to make the meeting size manageable.

If you are a Community Rep or Shadow Rep, please register as an individual via the above form AND register using this form: https://forms.gle/KXyqsqrLWYBY6gyg6

We ask that ONE person registers as Community Rep and ONE Person registers as Shadow rep per community.

Please help us get the word out by posting this to your local lists, groups and to members of your communities who might not be connected online
