The North Louisiana STEM Alliance tried doing that just for the leadership team (fondly named the “Strategic Design Team”). Even that turned out to be cumbersome. A university professor on the team said his university would not allow him to sign an MOU without a huge amount of administrative involvement, so he politely declined serving on the leadership team. I spoke with TIES and did some research on my own. In conclusion, I did not feel it was necessary to sign MOU’s unless specific members were discussing sensitive subjects such as patent ideas. Therefore, anything that is posted on our extensive shared Google drive should be considered *nearly* publicly available. It is for members-only but there really isn’t any recourse if someone shares it with someone else. So don’t post something sensitive or proprietary on the shared Google drive.
Now, for membership rules, we are in transition from personally vetting someone and adding them in as a member upon request, to a membership application form (our Americorps VISTA Member created a Jotform; she also created the MOU form). In this form, it has a Child Protection Policy. I plan to add the Non-discrimination Statement as well. I have heard from other ecosystems that getting every member to sign something is bothersome, and even very good members are just too busy to be bothered by signing stuff. I’ll keep you posted as we progress.
I hope this helps. If you want input regarding how to make and disseminate forms, I highly recommend you talk to our former Americorps VISTA member, Ms. Ebony Mitchell. She did a terrific job.
