The Governing Council is composed of a few previous board members. It's functions are to "vet" or review and approve or deny applicants for the ORNCC Board of Directors, to settle disputes among board members and if necessary remove board members from office (see bylaws).
Lisa-Marie DiVincentFacilitator, Mediator, Coach, Counselor Trainer/Facilitator
With fifteen-plus fun filled years of experience with NVC, I've been a Eugene-Springfield area therapist, mediator and group facilitator since the mid-80s, also offering phone and Skype sessions internationally. I first read the book in 2000, took various trainings including graduating from the year-long 2003 BayNVC Leadership Program. I was a co-founding member of ORNCC and co-planner of the U of O 2008 Nonviolence as a Way of Life Conference, featuring Marshall Rosenberg in his last appearance in Oregon before he retired. I've taught NVC in schools, churches, businesses and have facilitated the weekly class/practice group called Empathy Cafe since 2009. Please contact me for a complimentary get-acquainted phone visit!
