    I'd like to put forth an additional position for consideration by the group.

    Communications Officer
    o Maintains contact information on all members
    o Gives phone call reminders about upcoming meetings and events several days in advance

    Let me know what you all think :) And if any of you are interested in that position (if it is approved).

    I would like to nominate Reanna as Recording Officer. After the last meeting i was very impressed.

    I will second Kelli as President.

    I will also second John as Webmaster.

    I think that role falls more in line with the Records Officer, or something the President could do. Just a thought.

    I agree with Erich, we should probably give our officers more to do, rather than create more positions that only have one or two tasks.

    I would suggest that this not be added on to the Recording postion, that position has plenty to do. I would suggest that this either be a separate position, or it be added to the Recruitment position, as this position will be in contact with all new members anyway. Obtaining their contact information and maintaining communcations with them will be easier and the most logical choice. Comments?

    Ok, even though the bylaws haven't been ratified, I think they answer this question if they are ratified.
    "Keep ongoing communication with other the entire group"
    This falls under the President's job, which sounds like the new position Nat proposed.
    "Acclimate new members (signing by-laws, payment of dues, etc.)
    Work public relations "
    This is under the Recruitment description.
    My thought is this: Given the amount of people that associate with the group it would be best to split up the contact info between President and Recruitment for two reasons:
    1. It quickens communication among the group.
    2. The burden isn't on just one person.
    More comments, please!
