Leading a Subgroup
If you would like to lead up a subgroup on a particular topic as your service to Bootstrap, please contact Bijoy. Ideally, subgroups have 2 (3 max) coleads with a nice MRE balance! Usually, it will start with one person wanting to step up and then evolve from there. If you're the initial lead for a subgroup, we can work together to find a colead. Having a colead is not a requirement, but highly recommended so you can get "Power of 2," lighten the load, etc.
One of the coleads will become the online administrator for the group. Bijoy will create a wiki page, an email address, a yahoo group and Evite account. Here's how you use these online tools:
- [Wiki page: communicate information about the leads, mission, needs and any other internal operation of your group. See the Music subgroup for an example.
- Email address forward to the appropriate person and can be used when people want to communicate with you
- Yahoo group is used for group discussion and communication of events. We are experimenting with Small World Labs group functionality, and some new groups will be hosted there on a case-by-case
- Evite account will be used for events. Copy and paste email list from the yahoo group (by going to "Members" and clicking on "Download"
