We got a steering committee. We got a broad (interpretable) mandate. We got a timeline. We got representatives of all the choirs - enough to ensure the legitimacy of the meeting. What's more, most people came away pretty content with the compromises reached.
It's still a little delicate, and will depend greatly on how the steering committee moves on a number of issues, but I think there's plenty of potential.
Despite being sleep deprived, and bouncing up and crashing from caffeine, blood-sugar levels and pure tension, I had a fascinating day, which makes me glad to have experienced such things, even if they were not all entirely pleasant. A bit of buzz can be wonderful, and I've come away from the meeting energised.
I'm happy to talk to anyone about how things went and so on.
The time constraints and tension were high, but the applause was heartfelt and the release almost visceral when the motions were passed. Real progress.
I'm looking forward to the combined events leading up to the general meeting and elections, which will probably be on Sunday March the 21st, 2010, unless good reasons are presented to the steering committee :)
