>> Hi all,
>> With the talk of people wanting to add to the Principles of Unity, I
>> thought it should be mentioned that there is another document which I
>> believe is as important as the POU, the Membership Criteria.
>> I imagine the final wording of the proposal that we come up with will
>> determine which document is updated.
>> For example, something like "IMC Collectives will not advertise paid
>> positions" might be best in the Membership Criteria, where as something
>> like "We recognise the inherent relationship between money and
>> hierarchy, but each local IMC is empowered how to deal with money" might
>> best go in the POU.
