Campfire Circles : Organising teams


I first floated this suggestion after our discussions at the November 2016 Campfire Circle meeting in Braunston - the idea of dividing up into organisational teams 

Would this way of organising work? Your feedback is valued.

I have revised the Circles one year on and comments welcome, volunteers especially welcome!

An example of how teams might work...

Biz : Planning, company, finance, forecasting

Geeks : Website development , research, issues, software, modules 

Design : Concepts, print, flyers, logos, icons, programmes

PR : Social media, event feeds, promotion and publicity

Organisation : Team meeting co-ordination, tools management, mailing lists, mail blasts

Media : Archiving, film & audio recording, transcribing

Editors : Guild and Bugle editors, content, directives, policy

Mentoring : Tutorials, nurturing new members, sponsorship of new members

My first impression is that this is a simple to understand way to organise. Obviously there will be overlaps, but it's all self explanatory (well, to me, anyway..) It also seems a straightforward way for people to choose where they'd like to be involved.
