Q5/ National Volunteers

Can Freegle have members (with voting rights, rights to membership of central groups and ability to stand for elected positions) who are not volunteers or moderators on a local affiliated group, but who volunteer at a national level? The precise details of how this would work will be developed by the Structure Group.
For 65 (61%)
Against 27
Abstain 14
No Answer 5
therefore the majority of Freegle members agree to the principles of having National Volunteers but Structure must now develop the precise details of how this will work.

There were a variety of Comments left, which are available for perusal on Structure (Message #7004)

Thank you to everyone who took part, your input as volunteers is very much appreciated.
