Communities of practice like the DNA barcoding community can organize themselves in various ways. How would barcoders like their coordinating community to operate? Please offer your comments on issues such as:
- How to gather input from the community to decide on priorities and strategies?
- Should the leaders be elected by the community, a leadership committee or board whose members rotate and are somehow approved by the community, or some other mechanism?
- If there are elections, who should be allowed to vote?
- Should there be memberhship requirements such as member fees which support the organization's activities?
