I started a new thread to make it less cluttered... The three council members are: jedi_runya Dagobah_Diva twilek69 VOTING BEGINS 1/28/08 and ENDS 2/03/08. Early and late votes are not accepted. PM votes to Earwen_Lightrider and post in this thread that you voted (not who you voted for). You vote will be counted only if you posted that you voted. Chapter Rep: Elections for chapter rep will be held after the elections for council have completed and everyone has accepted the position. If any council member does not wish to be considered for CR s/he may say so at this time. That person then is not on the CR "Ballot". CR must attend at least 1/2 of the yearly meetings. Duties of CR and the Council 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. CR and council will make the rules of the boards together and the CR will enforce them. Enforcing them means letting the RSA know if there is a problem that needs a ban or edit, and being in contact with an RSA 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. There will be other duties to be decided and divided up after the new council is formed. People will have more set jobs now though. How and when to remove CR/Council member If a council member has been MIA for one month and has made no contact with any other member through any means, they will be removed from the council. If the person has made contact and still haven't returned to the boards after 2 months, s/he will be removed from council. If a person needs an extended vacation this is fine as long as it is pre-arranged. If the CR/Council member breaks a law that directly affects his/her ability to be a member of the council, s/he will be removed. (I.e. jail time, threatening/stalking another member). A member can be voted off if s/he flames another member seriously via the designated council communication device. A majority vote must be received by the other members before the person is removed. Receiving a long/serious ban from our boards here is grounds for removal. To remove a council member, the council must have a majority vote. If there is a tie, the CR is the tie breaker. To remove the CR, two members of the council must vote his/her removal.
