Hello Steve, A nice articulation of a difficult problem. If our shared activities were uni-dimensional and easily quantified, then one might reasonably argue that someone willing and able to provide service above and beyond their agreed-to expectation should retain whatever hard earned extra compensation comes their way. Our reality, of course, is quite different. We have reduced our "core" activities by an average of 30% in order to provide every member opportunity to participate in equally important, but less easily quantified "academic" pursuits, which require a degree of commitment above and beyond the nominal time allocation provided. Taking on "out of scope" work threatens our collective ability to provide those academic roles but compromising both incentive and opportunity. In addition, the fact that these income generating opportunities are not available to all members is intrinsically inequitable. A process that shares extra earnings between the individual and the collective would seem to be a reasonable compromise. Tony
