    Mission Statement
    We, the Inland Empire Fan Force, are a non-profit club comprised of individuals who enjoy the Star Wars films and other aspects of the Star Wars franchise. Our club was created in order to give Star Wars fans in the Inland Empire region a chance to socialize and engage in activities relating to the varied aspects of the Star Wars franchise. We strive to keep Star Wars alive in the eyes of the Inland Empire community, and endeavor to give back to the community through charitable events. The Inland Empire Fan Force is the officially recognized Fan Force chapter for Inland Empire.

    By-Laws

    I. Name
    The name of our club shall be the Inland Empire Fan Force.

    II. Policies
    The Inland Empire Fan Force is not affiliated in any way with Lucasfilm, Ltd., or its subsidiaries. The Inland Empire Fan Force does not discriminate on the basis of age, gender, religion, physical handicap, sexual orientation, race, nationality or ethnicity.

    III. Membership
    Membership is open to everyone. To become a member you simply need to post on the boards. There are two classes of membership:

    Active Membership: Active membership is attained when a member lives in Inland Empire, posts on the forums regularly, and attends the majority of our meetings and events. Active members have full voting privileges. Active members are also eligible to serve as officers of the club.

    Honorary Membership: Honorary membership is open to anyone irregardless of geographic residence. Honorary members are allowed to post on our forums, receive our newsletter, and attend meetings and events of their choosing, yet are not eligible to vote on any club issues. Honorary membership may often be bestowed upon "celebrities" in the Star Wars community such as Star Wars actors, authors, those working for LFL etc.

    IV. Membership Dues
    We have no membership dues. Becoming an IEFF member is free, and as a member you will never be obligated to pay anything. However, some things do require money. In these circumstances, the Treasurer will collect money on a voluntary basis. Each member can choose to contribute or not, and can contribute as much as they feel comfortable with. The Treasurer will record who paid and what amount, so that if the total amount needed is not reached, every member who paid will get their money back.

    V. Official Meetings
    We will have a minimum of one official meeting per month. Additional meetings may be called when there is a need. Meetings will either be a pot-luck affair, or we will ask for a small donation to defray the cost of food and drinks. Occasionally an "Officers meeting" may be called for the officers of the IEFF only. The IEFF will make every attempt to pick a date for the meetings that will work for the majority of the member' schedules.

    VI. Voting Regulations
    All active members will be allowed to vote on any issues brought up at a General meeting or any issue being voted on the forums. Guests of members, first time attendees, and members not living in the geographic area of Inland Empire will not be allowed to vote.

    An exception will be made for those members who are residents of Inland Empire yet are currently attending elsewhere, provided their breaks are spent in Inland Empire. An exception will also be made for persons whose permanent residential address is in Inland Empire, but whose jobs might not permit them to be in area most of the time, such as those in the military.

    All elections will be won by a simple majority either by the show of hands, or by posting your vote on the forums.

    There are a few exceptions to these rules: The positions of President, Vice-President, Secretary, and Tre

    Has anybody actually taken a look at this? We're about to post some proposed changes. It would be a good idea if everybody took a look at was familiar with the charter.
