I have not been posting OT Committee Minutes for a few weeks as they are just too boring. I have a collection of them that have come in and I will probably do a “data dump” and throw them all into one post so there is a record of them in case anyone is ever interested.
But I got these newest minutes from CC Int and they contain some stuff that is just too astonishing to not comment on.
I have highlighted the most important points:
Date: Thu, 22 May 2014
From: CC Int OT Committee
Subject: CCI Int OT Committee Meeting Minutes – 2014 05 16
CCI OTC MEETING MINUTES – MAY 16, 2014
Carol Espinoza led the meeting and recited the purpose of the OT Committee from the OT Ambassador Program.
Carol is representing the OT Committee on the Maiden Voyage in June. Carol stated that our OT Committee is going to reorganize its finances so that one person from the OT Committee can be sent to attend the Maiden Voyage each year.
Carol stated that this is a big year for CC, with temporarily moving the org and renovations which are anticipated to begin after the annual Gala!
Carol also gave a brief rundown of the recent event for Valley Org – plans are finalized; the buildings will connect to each other; the cathedral will be used for international events; and it is anticipated that 600 staff will be needed to fully man the org! Currently, the largest org on the planet is the internet in terms of number of persons doing courses, so Valley Org is very important for those persons flowing onto and up the Bridge.
Trish Crandell arrived and let us know the following:
Maiden Voyage replay local events (location to be announced):
June 28 – Opening night
uly 5 – Management night
July 12 – Author Services night
July 19 – IAS night
June 27 – CC Int will be hosting a fundraiser for Valley Org in the Renaissance Restaurant to meet CC Int’s target! Fundraising for Valley Org will also be the fundraising focus the first two nights of Maiden Voyage event replays.
Trish noted that our OT Committee needs to establish events and thrusts that can be created on and in which everyone is interested. Carol will be sending around questionnaires to communicate on this, as well as when is the best time for our OT Committee meetings to maximize attendance.
Carol said we will have a kickoff party/event after Maiden Voyage to go over our next OT Ambassador Program – date and time to be announced.
Discussion on the above ensued. Carol then read an LRH quote, and the meeting was adjourned.
You can bet THIS is going to be a flap.
The LARGEST org is the internet?
This raises SO MANY questions:
I wonder if the internet is ideal?
Why do we need buildings at all, let alone “ideal” ones, if the internet “org” is bigger than any of them?
Is this the “training boom” from GAG II — extension courses on the internet?
Is this a new method of avoiding the orgs altogether? Long term scientologists sign up for an “internet extension course” and it keeps the call-in and regges at bay “I am already enrolled on a course”?
How are they keeping their students away from all the entheta that permeates their largest org?
There must be more of their students visiting this blog and Tony Ortega’s site than visit the Scientology.org as we both have volumes more visitors than the church.
What a sorry state of affairs this is.
And Valley Org “planning is done”? After fundraising for 10 years they actually have a plan?
And this org needs 600 staff? They will be on post, as the old saying goes, when pigs fly.
But it is good to see that CC Int “OT Committee” is attended by a grand total of SEVEN people — none of them celebs (other than in their own minds maybe). That is probably because CC Int is not ideal and is thus a hotbed of out-KSW squirreling….
