Paid Staff in Transition

While funding for individual projects can often be found, funding for the core of initiatives is much harder to come by. The risk is that groups fall victim to the ‘doughnut effect,’ where all the energy goes into emergent projects and enterprises while the core - which links everything together - goes empty. Providing income for paid staff for core activities can open up incredible opportunities, particularly when it comes to influencing key local decision-makers.
— Asher Miller & Rob Hopkins, Climate After Growth (2013)

This free Transition US National Network Call will focus on the dynamics of introducing paid staff into Transition Initiatives. 

Don Hall from Transition Sarasota (FL) and Sari Steuber from Transition Town Media (PA) - both initiatives which have some form of paid staff - will be on the call to share their own experiences.
