Hello Wisconsin Burners!
It's Iris of the Burning Man Regional Network team again. We are extending the self-nomination period for the Regional Contacts volunteer role in Wisconsin to Sunday, March 1 at midnight CST to allow more time for interested community members to step forward. If you feel qualified to self-nominate to be a Burning Man Regional Contact, please let us know before midnight CST on Sunday, March 1 by:

My team in collaboration with local leaders is searching for community members to contribute their spark and step into this leadership role. Regional Contacts (RC) volunteer year-round to build and nurture Burning Man community initiatives on a local level. They facilitate communication and collaboration with and between local community members, various local community groups and the Burning Man Regional Network Team.

If you live in Wisconsin year-round and are interested in becoming a Burning Man Regional Contact, please take a moment to read about the Regional Network, search process, and  Regional Leadership Criteria. We are specifically highlighting the desire for the following skills and attributes for the RC role in the Wisconsin community:

• Is collaborative, works well with a range of personalities, and can build bridges between community members across the full Wisconsin region including new members and re-engaging established members

• Is interested in listening and responding to community needs and ideas

• Has strong written, verbal, and public speaking communication skills; understands the importance of communication as a community-building and strengthening tool

• Has access to and is familiar with using Facebook

• Is willing to work with Google Group e-mail lists and can post and approve posts to the list in a consistent and timely manner

• Embraces feedback from the community and recognizes the need for a leader to plan for their own eventual succession

• Can maintain a mindset of flexibility about ownership rather than possession and is willing to help build a team through delegating and sharing responsibilities to develop the leaders of tomorrow

• Has conflict resolution skills

• Has capacity to take on the full duties of the Regional Contact role
