"Apart from the logo and corporate image designers, we are looking for
creatives who would be willing to be a member of the creative
committee. Since the team should be diverse, we would like to ask each
party that intends to be a member of the European Pirates to try to
find one volunteer (or maximum two) among their designers, publicists,
media professionals, etc, that can participate in the selection
committee (he or she doesn't need to be linked to the pirate party)."
I have people I am working with for common good but it is very hard to
enroll them in Pirate parties. first because of previously formed bad
reputation (created by death threats of Aleksandar Blagojevic) and second
because PP RS has no meetings so noting can be decided about new members.
If you have any advice how to overcome this, please do not hesitate to
share. I figured PP RS is not the only party with this kind of problem.
