We have allowed sufficient time for everyone to weigh in..
#1 Do we adopt in final form the name, mission statement, and four goals that have been decided on previously?
Yea 9 Nay 0
#2 Do we adopt “Share techniques and strategies” as a 5th goal? (A nay vote would keep the four we have. The ability to add additional goals in the future is always an option.)
Yea 1 Nay8
I need a motion to accept the vote and adopt the name, mission statement, and goals as written and stated below. Some one please follow up with a second on the motion.
Name of Effort/Organization
“Draft Animal Powered Forestry, International” (DAPFI)
“To promote the use of draft animal powered timber harvesting methods that support positive impact forest management”
1) “To improve opportunities for draft animal forestry practitioners to unite regionally, and internationally, to share information, work, markets, and advocacy.”
2) “To serve as a networking, clearinghouse and contact information for individuals and organizations involved in animal powered forestry throughout the world.”
3) ”To advance an ecological perspective of forest management, based on the use of draft animals, and other low impact/low input strategies.”
4) ”Work with researchers to study and publish ecological benefits of animal logging.”
I’ll follow up with a new thread after this has been accepted (or not) to work on the next steps.
