    Alright ladies, gents, and DH (it's the joke that never gets old), it is once again time to hold nominations and elections for your RMFF council for 2011.

    We have the following positions up for election:

    Chapter Representative (CR)
    Secretarian (Secretary/Historian)
    Treasurer
    Member-at-large
    Webmaster


    Here is a position description that I think made some small updates to:

    Chapter Representative (CR)
    This position was created by TFN to ensure that each city forum abides by the site's rules and regulations. An online and in-person position.

    ? Single point of contact for all Fan Force Forum issues.
    ? Handles communications and activities between RMFF and TFN.
    ? Posts all notifications on the Fan Force Forum.
    ? Welcomes new members and provides all support for Fan Force Forum issues unless it requires escalation to the RSA.
    ? The CR must ensure that all online forum communication follows the guidelines of TFN.
    ? Group liaison to TFN.
    ? Chair meetings and will work in conjunction with the other administrative positions to promote a productive and fun environment.

    ? Handles preparation for Official Meetings (Gathering topics from the members, securing meeting location THATS HUGE.).
    ? Records the minutes of each meeting, as well as the posting of all meeting minutes and any threads about sanctioned group activities (DATE/TIME/PLACE/DETAILS).
    ? Step in if the CR is unable to attend a meeting.
    ? Coordinates taking a group photo and sends event photos to Webmaster for posting on RMFF.net

    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    ? Updates website with materials provided by the Chapter Rep and Secretarian.
    ? Maintenance of the Official RMFF web page, including, but not limited to, keeping the web page updated, ensuring that the domain name registration is kept current.

    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Member-at-large

    ? Coordinate with other sci-fi groups in the region for activities
    ? Promote harmony among the groups and address any issues between the groups.





    At the last meeting we discussed having a, relatively short nomination and voting windows. I forget exactly what we decided, but how about we nominate people between now and next Friday November 12th. Then we'll finalize the ballot before the next meeting on the 20th. Then we'll have a 7 day voting period from November 29 to December 6th where you can PM your votes to our RSA, s65horsey (link to her profile at the top) with voter verification by Grimby, our illustrious and hard working admin.

    Grimby will only verify that the voter is an active member of the RMFF and not a sock or a voter outside of our forums. An active member is a loose definition, but generally at the last meet

    Thanks, Bill, but I'm going to pass on being CR again. Next year will (hopefully) be one of laziness. No council positions for me and no foster kids.

    That being said, here are my nominations.

    CR - catz and S__C
    treasurer - DH (since I suspect ObiWannabe won't want to do it and DH has done a fabulous job)
    secretarian - QueenHighMistress (nerf has said that he will pass on doing it next year)
    member at large - Mistress and S__C
    webmaster - ObiWannabe and Grimby
    WOTR liaison (forgot to post this one above) - Sarnia

    I respectfully decline the nomination for Secretarian this year. Three years is enough and I feel it's time to let someone else try the position.

    I second the nomination for QueenHighMistress for Sec!

    Thanks to all who nominated me again for webmaster. I gladly accept.


    And now, a word about the webmaster position:

    In the last year, we've begun doing some things that we really haven't done in the past, like using the official RMFF Twitter feed and abusing the RMFF Facebook group to send out meeting invites. There are those who say that Facebook and Twitter are signaling the demise of online discussion forums and personal web sites, but I disagree. I think Facebook and Twitter can actually help forums and websites thrive by keeping people informed of what's happening.

    Now, as a lot of you know I began work on upgrading the site with a lot of new features, including Facebook and Twitter integration. Sadly, my work was interrupted because of the announced board move, as my skills were required to help get the new forum ready to go. The good news is that almost all of that work is now complete, and I can once again start planning to finish the upgrades.

    At present, DWRD and I have been updating the RMFF's Twitter and Facebook accounts, respectively. I don't know if either of those duties needs to be added to the job descriptions of CR or Webmaster, though I do think that after the elections are finalized these two duties need to be assigned. I'm fine with continuing to update the Facebook account unless someone else really wants to do it.

    In the interest of not making this a popularity contest, maybe we should just stick to only nominating people who haven't been nominated yet and those who have been nominated accepting or declining positions.

    To confirm what DWRD posted, I decline the nomination for Treasurer, i'm already going to be taking that on for Comicfest this year, but I appreciate the nomination.

    'm disinclined to acquiesce to your request. Means "no".[face_shame_on_you]

    Sadly, I don't think I can commit the time to being C.R..especially with my saturday classes jacking up my schedule...besides, I'm still a newbie, only have two stars, AND JUST found out what a "C.R." was on Sunday!!

    ...I will, however, humbly nominate myself to be the official DWRD Insult Generator. Eh? Eh?[face_skull]


    Thanks for thinking of your favorite Lego though![:D]

    ...and here's a hug for emoticon usage [:D]

    Nice job with the summaries, Mistress. When I first saw how complicated the nominations, seconds, declines and acceptances were getting, I was thinking that a flowchart or diagram of some sort would be needed. Your summary is summarizing quite nicely.

    (Oh, and I think Grimby accepted for webmaster.)
