I was asked to post a thread on what was discussed at the meeting. This is purely to give people an idea of what was discussed, NOT, IN ANYWAY, IS THIS IS WHAT IS HAPPENING. Although more then a few of us had strong support for a few things mentioned, we'll hold off on that until a later date. Things discussed, I'll do the best I can, I'm tired: 1) Membership Fee---$10 to $15 dollars---gets you a RMFF T-shirt and RMFF ID Card and is good for a whole year -This is a heated topic, as it was tonight. It gained much support, esp. from the newbie and not so veteran yet members, as well as a few veteran members, and was well liked as a good idea. However, there is some heated debate to it and wheather or not it should be a "required" form of membership or not. As of right now, we all knd of agree it shouldn't be a "required" form of membership, although there are lots of things that have to be discussed before we can further this idea. Look for more topics on this issue throughout until December. 2) Emergency Pool of Money---Money gained from Membership Fee, not used towards T-Shirt or Membership Card---would go here -This idea was well liked by all. It would help out ANY RMFF Member facing a hard time. And when we mean member, we mean even if your just a poster at the boards here. This is where the Membership Fee is butting heads with it. But anyways, it was well liked. From the money gained from the Membership Fee, if seven dollars went to a T-Shirt, two dollars went to the RMFF ID Card, three dollars to other pools of money---planning events, etc.---and the extra three dollars would go into this Emergency Pool of Money. 3) RMFF Council -This topic gained more insight and topic debate then most thought probably. And a few members, newbie and veteran alike, had some good ideas. To be on the RMFF Council, we're looking for dedicated members, meaning, if you say you'll run something or oversee something, you'll do it, not slack on it. Along with the Membership Fee, look for topics on this issue throughout until December. 4) General Meeting---Held Every Six Months -This was an idea that was liked by all and will most likely be discussed very heavily in upcoming meetings, if not a part of RMFF within the next month or two. We are looking for a general meeting, to discuss the politics and other doings of the RMFF group, every six months. It will be held at the same place every year, so Fat City for example. Every year, same place. The whole purpose of the meeting is the politics of RMFF. The once a month meetings will instead focus on Star Wars as a group, having fun, while this meeting every six months will be so all can come, same place every year, and we will discuss the not so fun politics and other red tape stuff of RMFF. 5) A Nod Leader -We have certain members who are around each other more then others. We were thinking that for every group of three to seven people, there would be a Nod in the group. This Nod Leader or Squad Leader would have everyone's phone numbers, email addres, and other contact info. ONLY THE NOD OF THAT GROUP WOULD HAVE THAT INFORMATION. Everyone else in the group would not have that information, not even the RMFF Council. The Nod would have to be a trusted friend or someone you can trust with your phone number (cell or home) and email address. The Nod would have to be a activite members, meaning he/she would need to know everything that is going on. The purpose of the Nod Leader is to make sure everyone in his/her group knows of upcoming events, RMFF Council rulings, anything happening of major importance to the RMFF group basiclly. The Nod would make sure that his/her group knows what is going on, even if one of the members hasn't been online for a month or two. However, it's a double edged sword. The member in that Nod Leader's group would need to make sure that the Nod knows if he/she will be out of twon for a while, won't be online for a while for some reason, can't make a planned meeting or event they were going to.
