Transition Team Commitments:

  1. All team members must commit $5 a month as a website Contributorship (found on the Become a Contributor page of the website) to show commitment and devotion to this movement, as well as maintain that membership. The only exclusions to this is if a member lives in an intentional community that pays a monthly membership to The Transition on behalf of the whole community.

  2. Complete all TEAM WORK that was assigned the week before or the due date that was committed to. Your failure to do so affects the whole team’s output and creates confusion.

  3. A member who does not show up, nor give notice of their absence, or leaves before the set end time for 3 consecutive meetings (or very frequently) will not be allowed to join or participate in any new projects for a week’s time.  Consistent disregard for this rule may lead to a group vote for removal from the team.

  4. Respect each other, and the time and effort they are contributing, by using “Please” & “Thank You” as often as possible.  Use Non-Violence Communication in order to speak and hear only in needs and feelings.

  5. Always consider if your work and actions are in the best interest of The Transition and not your personal ego. (NOTE: Access to documents and bringing in new members need to follow our Prospective Team Member Protocol)

  6. Do not over commit to projects if you do not have the time availability or skill-set to fulfill the needed task. Your having the integrity to be honest leaves room for others to show what they bring to the table and allows the team to develop many leaders who take initiative.

  7. If you say you are going to do something, then follow through with that promise. Do not set unrealistic deadlines for yourself.

  8. Major Power Point Presentations are not needed as long as you can communicate your vision to the team clearly. The more visuals the better! Keep it short and sweet.

  9. For ALL projects, please follow our Branding Guidelines and Best Practices so we send out a consistent message to the public. (under development)

  10. Keep our Skype channel as clean as possible so people can see announcements etc. If things get into a debate or long conversation please take it over to a PM (private message) discussion. No one wants to weed through 100+ posts just to find the one valuable piece of  information they are looking for or actually need.

  11. We are Doing the work we are doing and seeing results and how it impacts lives should be reward enough. Do not expect teammates to reignite your passion or give you a “Why?” to maintain your level of motivation and commitment.

  12. Communicate your needs to the group as they come up. No one is a mind reader here.

  13. All teamwork belongs to The Transition and must be kept within an approved The Transition place such as our website or our Google Docs folders.
