I second!!! Her presentation at ISBC 2012 was fantastic. She would be a great addition. 

And…I love that she uses phrases like “…be a ripper”!

During that time I have designed a number of earth and straw bale buildings and more recently(2012) completed a Master of Architecture thesis "Earth and Straw Bale: their performance and potential as building materials in New Zealand." I am a member of the Standards New Zealand Committee responsible for our Earth Building Standards and part of a working group looking at providing building consent information for straw bale construction. Most importantly I am on the organising committee for the 2016 International Straw Building Conference to be held in Methven, New Zealand in March 2016 which is going to be a ripper!

>> Hi all,
>> We had a couple of nominations hanging out there - Brad Young of Fairfield IA and cob builder Kevin McCabe.  But due to poor follow through, Brad was on the 'read only' list until just now when I promoted him to contributing member status (WELCOME, Brad! from a fellow 'roo), and Kevin hasn't even joined the 'read only' list. Tom or Graham, are you willing to follow up on Kevin - invite him to the list and then let me know he's signed up.
>> The same procedure goes for Enga - ask her to sign up for the list and let me know once she's there.  I can then make her a contributing member.
>> Sign up is through the link in the footer of every message from the list.
>> With all these cobbers and other not-pure-straw people coming in lately, perhaps we should change the name from Global Straw Building Network to Global Sustainable Building Network!
