Over the last year or so, the BRR, the BM Regionals Team, and some Regional Rangers (and others) had a bunch of meetings about how to build stronger regional ranger teams. We've had meetings on playa, presentations during the GLC, and a bunch of other conversations.
One of the things that's come out of this most is that it would be helpful if there was a mailing list for active regional ranger leads to communicate with their peers on, and to get help from the BRR. This is the start of making that mailing list.
To keep things focused for the first year, we're going to add only one or two leads from each region. If you have a bunch of leads or a ranger council, it would be awesome if you could decide amongst yourselves who should be on this list.
The purpose of this list is not just to chat, but also to share what folks are doing locally with other regions, and to build a repository of things that work to share with other regional ranger leads.
We're also interested in involving the leads of Ranger-like organizations at events that subscribe to the 10 principles (example: 'Malfare' at Nowhere, the European Regional Burns.) If you have a question about this, just ask.
Thanks for joining us as we build a Regional Ranger Network. If you have questions about this, mail firstname.lastname@example.org. Apologies for not using the normal email list membership mechanisms, this turns out to be easier for making sure that people are actually ranger leads.
