I've got a question that I thought someone out there might possibly have some experience with. Here at Heartwood, we're in the process of reorganizing our team structure now that we're actually living in community (YES!!). We will have teams responsible for all of the various community functions (common house, finance, process & communication, land stewardship, party, etc.) and also a 3 person Planning & Oversight team with overall responsibility. The P & O team will also be the HOA Board of Directors as required by our covenants. We envision having all of the teams be voluntary, except for the P & O team, which will be elected (again, consistent with our covenants). So, my question is how do we elect team members using the consensus process? Have you ever seen it done? How do we avoid the 'defeated minority' problem that consensus precludes? Any help you can give on this will be much appreciated.
