At this past weekend's small gathering in Orlando we developed the possibility of having a sort of "Jedi Council" to guide the GFA. This would be made partly of the leaders of the existing clubs, Chris (Tampa), Rich (Treasure Coast), and your humble narrator, Campbell (Orlando). Additionally, the initial guidance team would include two other members of the Alliance made up of anyone that participates regularly on the boards and regularly attends meetings. This would make the council "tie-proof" and spread some of the responsibilities beyond just the three current group leaders. We need opinions on this idea and nominations for councilors. You can nominate yourself (you just need to be seconded by a known GFA member) and you don't necessarily need to be in the three comunities listed above. You just need to be a regular face at most gatherings and a regular participant on the [link=http://swgfa.com/]SWGFA boards[/link]. Projects taken on by the board may include writing a mission statement for the GFA, coordinating community service opportunities as a group, organizing meetings and workshops, designing some simple guidelines for new clubs to join the Alliance, building and running a website (in addition to the boards) and writing a FAQ about the group. What should we call the Alliance Board? ?Alliance Board ?GFA Executive Committee ?Jedi Council ...are just some ideas. Should it be for a year term? [hr] If they'll accept, I nominate Orlando Systers Russ (Eofer Draijonsai) and Aaron (Aaronb1) for a position on the Board. This is due to their contributions to message board discussions and attendance at meetings. An election should happen sooner than later so I suggest that in the next few days we set a date by which nominations should be concluded and a date for voting here on the boards. I think we should send out an email and post an election notice on our Facebook group with a link to the Voting Booth on the main boards.
