New VP, election for Alternate

Postby LucasTheLost » Mon Feb 23, 2009 1:30 pm

We need to hold a new internal election for VP, and an Althing-election-thingy-thing for a new Alternate.

Do we have any nominations for a new VP?

Hell, to be honest .. with RW stepping out .. and the changing Monarchy .. I can't really recall WHO is on the BOD.

Officers:
Monarch seat: About to be Doogan.
PM seat: Still Eve

Actual BOD members:

Brigade (treasurer)
Gonzo (nada)
Lag (secretary)
Lucas (president)
Tweak (liason)

Officers can hold BOD position thingies, but that slot would have to be re-elected when that officer's term ended.

It sounds like no member of the BOD has any particular opinion on who should be our VP, so...

I'd like to omnomnominate Cadogan as the BOD VP. Any other omnominations?

(It's almost supper time... can you tell I'm getting hungry?)

Any other business before the board?

I think we need to start discussing things for fair cause as far as i know we have well...nothing with fair even in the works yet so that defiantly needs to be dealt with

There was some discussion among the monarchy about Fair today, we have a rough gameplan at the moment.

I concur.

And I think our method of participation needs an overhaul. Just asking who wants on the gate list ends up with us submitting quite a few people who either never show, or never do much more than swing some foam and get into fair for free.

The latter part is a long-standing sore point for many people, and I think we should discuss different ways of dealing with it.

Some previous suggestions have been:
Fixed number of slots, let people "bid" for them. Bidding need not involve money. "I'll contribute N loaners", "I'll be on gate duty every day", . Bidding based on what people WILL bring could have issues if they fail to deliver.
Fixed rate per head (yes, money). Feast funds, tent supplies, and so forth would come out of this fund, with lower rates for kids (possibly "free" for under X, where 'x' is something like 4 or 5).
Bar people who haven't contributed in the past.
Form a household that handles fair. There'd be a fair (har) amount of membership overlap with the BOD, but hand it off to some other group, and wash our hands of it. I must admit, that has a certain appeal.

Another idea I just came up with: Have the BOD vote for each and every name we put on the list. Ooh! We could Form A Subcommittee! Let a smaller portion of the BOD deal with the individual names, then we can sign off on the list as a group rather than spending however long on each one.

No matter which method we choose, I think the "sign off on the list as a group" thing should be a part of it, but that's obviously Open To Discussion.

Paperwork is done. We are admitted. They are expecting us. We requested 70 feet wide this time around. What they give us will be a mystery until April 24th unless a Brown can steal the info from a ravenwood archer.

What you people choose to do with this faire is up to new hands! Good luck!
