    Guys, sadly Phil has decided to retire from CR life. I wish him all the best.

    As I said on the main board, this is a blank page, a new beginning. And I want to see all chapters thrive - that is of course if that's what the chapter wants.

    I have ideas on getting new membership etc, but I need a CR to work with. I cannot do everything for all 6 chapters on the board.

    So perhaps I should clarify what I believe the role of a CR is. This is what I told the Powers that Be when approached for the RSA role

    "Some have said the CR should be a "leader", others have stated that the only role of the CR is to be a "communicator". Neither of these are true. A CR's job is to guide the chapter, and to organise local meet-ups. It is the CR's responsibilty to be the first and only point of contact with outside groups, when it comes down to a chapter's presence at a local event. It makes things easier all round. A CR is NOT just a "posting boy". It is a person chosen by the group to represent their best interests, and as such it is vital for a potential CR to lay out from the start their vision for the group. If they don't, an election is ultimately meaningless. The RSA is there to guide them and assist them where needed. The RSA is not there to dictate things or take over. If an RSA cannot trust a CR, then there is a problem. Personally I don't have a lot of experience with organising meets, but I do know there are people here whom I can trust to do that. There are also a lot of people that I know will help and guide me when needed. That's an advantage of being here for 7 years."

    I need a CR whom I can trust to take an active role in recruitment - whether it be contacting comic shops and universities, or organising flyers. A CR really must want the best for the chapter's future, and not just want a pretty blue name.

    Some of the chapters are really floundering at the moment, and there really is no need for it. All it takes is a couple of people to spend a weekend working on the chapter, doing practical things like letter sending, or researching addresses, and we can really get this place booming again.

    So if you think you're the person, post your name here with an indication of where you see the chapter now, where you want it to go, and how you can help that.

    I am anxious to get this sorted ASAP, so none of this "2 weeks for nominations, 2 weeks deciding, and 2 weeks voting".

    Just get those names in!!!

    Locked at CR's request

    I just dont have the time and I dont foresee the real life situation changing in the next year. Its unfortunately one of those things, I am very rarely on line now days unless I am researching something specific. I'm going to C4 and that will pretty much be my presence in the Fan-verse for the rest of the year.
