I briefly hinted in previous threads ("State of Affairs...") about creating organization for the MDFF so that we can continue as a group even beyond Star Wars-related events. To create organization, I am proposing that we setup MDFF as a formal organization with officers and maybe some protocol? Well mainly officers to delegate and spread out the work loads. Here are my proposed positions and a brief description of duties which are of course open for interpretation and revision. President: The FF City Rep. The head honcho that makes the final decisions. Keeps the meetings in order. Takes the fall when we get kicked out of public places! Vice-President: The FF Event Coordinator. Serves presidential capacity when President can't make a meeting or is unavailable. Heads up committees, arranges meetings/events, and schedules such. Secretary/Treasurer: Takes attendance, records minutes. Publishes notices of meetings/events details (could also entail notifying NE Mod for publication on the main site). Maintains calendar of events. Maintains finances (should we decide to incur member dues: another matter right now). Would entail collecting dues and maintaining records of dues paid. MDFF Webmaster: Maintains the separate MD Force website with regular updates/additions. It would be suggestable to have reps for toy collectable news/affairs, Star Wars movie-related current events, EU affairs, the fan film, and many other areas. A word on membership dues: I think it would be a good idea to start thinking about setting up a membership dues. For new members, they would have to attend 3 meetings before dues would be required. This dues would/could go to fund snacks/food at meetings/parties and such when we aren't meeting at a restaurant. Or it could be used to rent a space at a state park for picnics or anything else we may want to do that would require funding. Also could be used to finance our web domain. And offset costs to our fan film if we so decide to pursue that route Now this is a very rough draft and is wide open for revision. So do you guys like this idea of organization and what would you change with this structure? I think this would be a good direction to aim towards. This way we will actually have business to discuss at meetings, decisions can be clearly made, responsibility for tasks to be accomplished will be clearly defined and the such. We can maybe set some sort of short-term limits (6-month, 12-month terms?) so that we all have the opportunity to hold a position and everyone has a hand in governing the group. So hows that for an organizational proposal?
