Surveys — DM/DA is currently supporting SGS in a survey of how the community uses and produces online services. In addition, reports for the Sense of Shambhala survey remain available and sub-analyses are being conducted.

How does the PT fit organizationally in Shambhala – participation? Third point on a triangle? Take experience of coordinating body – how to be really devoted to coordinating, with a larger group of people specializing in topic areas. Difficulty of the model of PT as a heavy responsibility, limits participation. A role in the Board makes sense if you are generating policies. But liaisoning well with the Board is helpful – PT manifesting in different ways in different situations. Who are our stakeholders, who is involved? In broad view – including those past the boundaries of the organization. PT Arm length from the Board and the Potrang.
