A bit of Henley in Transition History
The "Enabling Group" started life, when Transition
in Henley was newly conceived, as the initial "Steering
Comittee". Made up of the initial handful of people who
had come together to form a transition group, the comittee
arranged public meetings to promote awareness explore ideas,
identify topics of consensus and where there was support for
action. and oversaw the birth of several transition projects
including the LCCC

"Set up a steering group and design
its demise from the outset
This stage puts a core team in place to drive the project
forward during the initial phases.
We recommend that you form your Steering Group with the aim
of getting through stages 2 5, and agree that once
a minimum of four sub-groups (see #5) are formed, the Steering
Group disbands and reforms with a person from each of those
groups. This requires a degree of humility, but is very important
in order to put the success of the project above the individuals
involved. Ultimately your Steering Group should become made
up of 1 representative from each sub-group."
