Molly asked about confidentiality in regard to their "clarity and Resolution committee". Pioneer Valley has had a similar committee for most of its 6 or 7 years of existence. First it was called the "Mediation Committee", then the "Mediation/Communication committee" and finally the "Community Support committee". This committee started out doing conflict resolutiion sessions between members--the first of which was done with the membership invited because we were a small group and the issues concerned all of us. We experimented with trying to find the most effective ways to do these sessions, and have tried lots of things, some more successful than others. Now we also schedule and plan regular whole group process meetings called the "Other Meeting", an idea we got from Caroline Estes who came to do a workshop on consensus decision making (I highly recommend it!). Mediation sessions which are between individuals are not reported in any way to the community nor are there any records that I know of. There are no written notes on Other Meetings either. We seem to err always on the side of confidentiality, given the choice. Of course, the grapevine is ever-present anyway... Rebecca from Pioneer Valley/Cherry Hill/Someday to be named in Western Mass.
