Final Report on the Selection Process
The RAS is happy to share with you that the Selection Committee (SC) for the team of L’Avenir d’Auroville / TDC 2012 - 2015 has completed their work.
The group started their work three weeks ago, on July 23rd 2012 after a two week period for submission of applications and nominations.
A total of 52 Aurovilians submitted applications or nominations.
The original list of applicants and nominees counted 36 individuals. After the RAS crosschecked with the nominees whether they confirmed their willingness to be proposed, a final list of 23applicants and nominees remained.
The Selection Committee started their work as a group of 13. The Town Development Council Advisory Committee (TDCAC) could not send their 2 representatives.
Andy decided to resign from the Selection Committee after the morning session of July 26th.
As defined in the RA approved selection process, three neutral facilitators worked with the team (Amy, Elvira and Jesse) and a consensus process was used for decision making. Pashi represented the Study Group as a resource person for clarifying questions on the proposal process. Partha and Selvam of the RAS joined the meetings from time to time.
The Selection Committee agreed on defining their consensus process as follows:
If and when a decision needs to be arrived at, a proposal is presented that was worked out by the group in a general discussion.
Each member of the team can choose their personal decision from within three options:
If you stand aside you have the option to explain the nature of your concern and suggest changes or amendments that could turn your stand aside to consent.
If you block you have the responsibility to explain the nature of your concern and contribute to building an alternative proposal that could turn your block into a stand aside or consent.
Consensus is not reached if a total of 2 Selection Committee members block a specific proposal.
The mandate of the Selection Committee 2012 was to select a team for L’Avenir d’Auroville / TDC 2012 -2015.
Their decision is two-fold:
1.) A team of 8 coordinators for L’Avenir d’Auroville / TDC.
While point 2.) was not part of the ratified mandate, the Selection Committee offers ARC to the Residents of Auroville as their result of an intense, inclusive and challenging selection process
As the SC is the designated monitoring body for the entire mandate of this coordinator team, the ARC paper can be considered as a foundation for the bi-annual monitoring process.
