Organization Proposal for the San Francisco Chapter of Fan Force In order to create a more harmonious fan-based group that appreciates the work of George Lucas and the Star Wars Universe, the San Francisco Chapter of Fan Force needs direction in the form of administration and leadership. In other words, duties and roles for members should be decided. The group, at this moment, is relatively small and needs two things in the decision making process: 1. An administrator or City Rep who handles communication and co-ordination. This position is one of administration only and is responsible for passing on messages, to other members, communication, and any or all paperwork that is needed, and coordination of events. 2. A leadership group that handles decision making and direction of the group. This group will be responsible for the creation of events, control of the members, and the final decisions on necessary actions. This group will decide on any major decisions. There are several reasons why leadership should be decided by council rather than by a single entity. No one person is perceived to be in control of the group. Â§ A committee or council would be more representative of other members and is able to provide alternate views. Â§ It provides a more democratic approach by way of checks and balances. Â§ Rome was once a Republic that was ruled by a democratic Senate until Julius Caesar was declared ?First Citizen.? Afterwards, his nephew, Augustus, declared himself Emperor. This parallels the events in the fall of the Republic in which a Chancellor was elected by the Senate. The committee should be made up of no less than three members, but always by an odd number. The odd number is necessary so that in cases where decisions must be made and come to a vote, there is no likelihood of a tie. This form of rule by committee is probably the most fair at the time. It is more representative and allows for dissension and differences in opinion in a democratic venue. This form of governing body is tentative and will most likely grow and change as the club membership expands and its events become more elaborate.
