  -- Including general positions as well as office bearer positions

If we are running the show with too few people involved, it's because the
various powers that be have chosen not to leverage effort from the

I don't see any reason not to "do something" with those extra people,
unless it's presumed to add more complexity to do so. In addition to the
"understudy" concept, we could also look at more project-based council
allocations (e.g. head of projects, head of this, head of that etc) which
could be either voting council member positions, or potentially just
recognised roles reporting to the council.

I think it's hard for ordinary community members to find the time to drive
through a major commitment when they also have to take on convincing both
the council and the community.
