    It is that time again RMFF

    This thread is for NOMINATIONS for the following positions for CY 2012:

    Chapter Representative (CR)

    Co-CR (formerly member at large)

    Secretarian (Secretary/Historian)

    Treasurer

    Webmaster - it was determined that due to the expertise needed for this position that Grimby would maintain said title and responsibilities.

    All nominations will occur using this thread starting at 12:01 a.m. on 11/21/2011. Notifications concerning the nominations and voting will be posted on the RMFF Facebook Page, however voting members must log in and post their nominations via the FF boards in this thread. (additional instructions for voting will be forthcoming).

    Only active members will be permitted to nominate persons or vote in this election:

    This from last year's definition: An active member is loose, but is generally defined as a person who has attended 3 events (whether it's a meeting or a special event) in the past 12 months. Grimby will determine eligibility as per the requirements stated above.

    Once the nominations are finalized, the voting will occur here on the FF boards (via PM to Grimby), and for those who did not have an opportunity to, or chose not to vote via the boards, you may do so at the December meeting/holiday party via confidential ballot. All votes will be finalized at the December meeting and elections results will be announced following the final vote tally. Please note, that you may only vote once, either via the boards or in person at the meeting.

    Here is a list of the position descriptions that JT posted last year...THANKS JT!

    Mel (Cyodarun),

    Can you post who is currently occupying each post next to the descriptions of the positions? Can you include real name and screen name?

    Before we start going the route of "keep the current board members," I would love to hear from those in the current positions that they would want to stay by either re-nominating themselves or at least letting us know they want to stay.

    Are there term limitations for any positions?

    Thanks!

    By all means, nominate away. I would like to stay on as treasurer so I will throw my hairpiece in the ring.

    Are there term limits?

    I'm perfectly fine with things as they are. You all are doing a great job. If you're up for another year, then you've got my vote.

    I'd be interested in running for secretarian. Q has done a good job, but I'd like to run for the position, too.

    I can, like, write and stuff.

    WOW Michael, that's some confidence in the current council.
    I'm happy to stay where I'm at, backing CYR when needed or anyone else that needs it. Which reminds me I need to do the notes, sorry just forgot been so busy.

    Let's keep talking on what we liked about last year & what we didn't.

    edit: to add quote and to say I'm all for change as well, love new blood as well.

    Great! I'm sure you would do a great job, its really a matter on collecting money and transferring from your personal paypal to the RMFF Paypal and knowing how to keep track of everything. Sometimes it can be a mess. Also handling the Non-raffle and things like decals, t shirts and water bottles.

    OK - Here is a run down of what has been posted so far:

    There was a motion to keep the current "administration" - 4 persons have concurred - all of the current office holders have agreed to stay on, if the group votes as such.

    Becca has volunteered to maintain her position as WOTR liasion - I failed to list this in the original post - but I will put forth my nomination for her to remain in this role.

    Jthornton has expressed interest in the role of Secretarian/Historian

    Zeriduel has expressed interest in the role of Treasuer

    CatZ has nominated Lego for the role of Co-CR

    We need some nominations and/or seconds RMFF....lets get out the vote. [face_flag]

    I second these nominations. New blood is always good so people don't get burnt out and never want to do anything responsible again. Time to spread the love, yo!

    I know the RMFF has fallen off the radar for many of our previously, post-heavy people thanks to Facebook and changing social situations, but let's remember our first love and our true friends...it's the Rocky Mountain Fan Force! Let's make 2012 a year of activity, both on and off the boards! Nominate and second those people who you think will do a great job making the RMFF what it should be, a Force to be reckoned with!

    Exclamation marks!!
