    One of the things that has to be decided at our next meeting is "Who will be our City Rep?" In an attempt to make this decision completely fair to all people, this thread will be for nominations. Please read through this carefully!!

    Item 1: What is a City Rep(CR)?
    (taken directly from Fan Force FAQ) CR's have essentially replaced what are known as moderators. A moderator is responsibl for maintaining their online forum. However, a CR transcends this role because they are also responsible for representing their chapter and its interests.

    A CR must be a leader -- capable of organizing and supporting their entire chapter. A CR is elected by the members of a chapter. However, if a group has not yet become a recognized chapter, they may still elect someone to represent them and their interests until said group becomes official.


    Item 2: Nomination process.
    It is important to go about electing our CR in a fair way. After discussing this with many other members, (usually via AIM/AOL) we thought someone should post a nomination thread. Here is how the process will go:
    1. Any FF member may nominate another member for CR by posting the name of the person they think would best fit the role. Please do not nominate yourself! To nominate someone, simply post "I nominate <user name>"
    2. Each name that is nominated must be seconded by another FF member. To second a nomination, simply post "I second the nomination of <user name>"
    3. At the meeting on Saturday, we will vote by secret ballot for all the nominees. The ballots will then be counted by two separate people (preferrably non-nominees) to ensure fairness and accuracy.


    So, let the nominations commence! Any questions regarding this, please PM me [face_clown]

    EDIT: You can nominate more than one person.

    EDIT 2: If you are nominated and do not wish to be, let me know and I'll remove your name from the ballot.

    Just to let everyone know...we'll actually be voting (via secret ballot) at the meeting on Saturday. This thread is for nominating people. So if you want to nominate someone for consideration, do that here.

    Seconding a nomination merely solidifies that person's place on the ballot. We want to make sure everyone has a chance, but we need the nomination process so that we don't have 20 people with 3 votes each, etc.

    So far, the ballot consists of:
    1. Master_MayimNaar
    2. DarthClerical
    3. jedibri


    Would anyone like to nominate anyone else?

    Well, with any luck we won't have to display our lack of directional skills again for awhile.

    Easy for you to say, Matt! I'm gonna be responsible for giving directions to our apartment for the party, as well as directions to other activites, since I'm the secretary! If I give a wrong direction any time in the future, I'll never live it down! [face_clown]

    Maybe, but we will have to navigate the streets to find italianjedi's house Matt, so we maybe in trouble ;) We may need to move the time of the meeting back half an hour to make sure all of us get there on time :p

    Well, I was going to say that I would drive there ahead of time and then let you follow me there, once I know where I'm going, but some of you might even have a hard time with that......
