What about agreeing to endorse it as 'The UK Comunity Psychology Network'?
a)  I'd suggest setting a deadline for objections.
b)  Set an arbitrary threshold of 10 unequivocal objections (based on
guess as to how many people are likely to bother to write - as against the
larger number of people signed up on the list (by the way, when will we be
able to get a listing of who we are writing to on these posts?)
c)  Make it very clear to the French comrades that we are a network rather
than a formally constituted organisation.

That way they can demonstrate international support for their event (which
might help people get funds for example to get there), and we overcome our
customary inertia and disorganisation without having to rapidly congeal
the network into a body with officers and constitutions (and eventually no
doubt a qualification test for who can come in? - although I'd want to
reserve the right to set up a formal organisation if that will be
instrumental in serving social justice in any way).

> Dear everyone,

> as mentioned at the Edinburgh UK CP Conference, the ECPA (European
> Community Psychology Association) will be convening a conference of
> European Community Psychology in Paris late in 2009. (I am on the
> organising committee). The local organiser is Thomas Sais of the French
> Community Psychology Association (Assoc. Franšaise de Psychologie
> Communautaire). Thomas has emailed me as follows:
>
> "In order to be legitimated to the eyes of the potential financers, could
> you please tell me if your national CP associations (or psychologists'
> association) would like to be mentioned as "partners" of the congress,
> without necessarily financing it ? That would be very helpful right now
> (I'm asking for sponsorships everywhere)."
> We in the UK do not have a national CP association ... the closest we come
> to it is the UK CP Network.
>
> I am assuming that previous discussion regarding 2iccp at Lisbon has set a
> precedent for us - as a network or list or whatever - not becoming
> 'partners' or 'endorsers' but thought I would bring this request to the
> list anyway, even though it is a trivial matter compared to some issues on
> which many of us would like to be able to have a collective voice.
>
> Anyone disagree that I should reply to Thomas and say that we do not have
> a body such as national CP association which could legitimately be a
> partner?
>
> Of course whether or not a UK CP association were a partner, CPs from the
> UK will be very welcome at the conference and I will keep you posted re
> further details as they emerge
