    Since Amy and Leash have declined to run for the position of CR, that leaves me since I am the only remaining member of the Council that still lives in the area. Does anyone else want to be considered so that we can have an actual election? I don't want to automatically want to claim the position because I do NOT want anyone to think I'm making a powerplay.

    If anyone is interested in running against me for CR, please state that you wish to do so in this thread. You have until midnight this Sunday to be placed on the ballot and then the election would be held next week.

    It might be helpful to post the rules for anyone wanting to run. They don't seem to be listed in the rules thread though. I think they have to come to 6? meetings a year, have X number of posts in the STL forum, etc... Does anyone have those?

    Good idea, Amy.

    Who is eligible for CR:

    You must be 18 years of age to be either CR.
    Must reside in the St. Louis area (FanForce rules for CR).

    You must have at least 50 posts to the boards as a whole, most of which are on StLFF (for small amounts).

    CR must make at least 6 meetings or social events a year. (Social event would be a beer meeting, or board announced get together with more than 4 total official members.) This can be slightly waived at this point, but CR must have been to several meetings in the past and make more in the future. Not going to meetings is grounds for dismissal.


    Duties of CR:

    Must register and participate in Council discussions at the council boards.

    Organize and plan meetings. They will gather the info and make the arrangements for the meetings (i.e. call places, get times set up etc). This doesn't mean everyone can't suggest places and volunteer to help with stuff. That is the job of every member. But CR and council will make sure all the details are taken care of.

    The CR will help the Council make any rules and enforce them. Enforcing them means letting the RSA/GSA know if there is a problem that needs a ban or edit, and being in contact with an RSA/GSA on such issues.

    CR and council members will swap writing the scrolling banner and writing the information for the main page each month. The person responsible each month will get the scroll bar submitted as soon as meeting/new is announced and decided. The main page info will be submitted within a week to 4 days before the meeting

    CR will make all announcements from the council decisions. S/He will also act as a "president" of the club and council. The council is like the "senate." Both CR and Council has veto power over the decisions of the other. CR is actually a member of council, but in the event of a tie the CR is the tie breaker.

    CR and council are required to address any concerns the club has in a timely manner.

    You're going to do great. Just make sure you make us ditch our mundane lives once a month and I'll be happy. :)
