Appointing a Chairman 2019-2021 Term

Post by the JabberwocK »

Dear newly elected Council Members,

For those of you who have served before and are returning for another term: Welcome back! Your dedication to MECCG is most appreciated!

For those of you who are serving for the first time, my sincere thanks for volunteering and getting engaged with the CoE! Your enthusiasm and talents will be needed to steer us forward into the future!

I would also like to say a special thank you to our outgoing Council Members who did not run for re-election: Shapeshifter, Jose-san, and cram. Thank you for all of your contributions over the past two years!

Per our Charter, the first order of business will be to elect a Chairman from among us. It has truly been my honor to serve as Chairman the past two years. My thanks and gratitude to my fellow 2017-2019 Council Members for your trust in me with this role.

We will need someone with energy, passion, and vision to lead us forward the next two years! So if you feel up to the task, please offer yourself up by posting in this topic! I'm prepared to pass the torch, so who wants it!? :D

We have lots of fun (and some work :wink: ) to look forward to over the next two years! Please do not hesitate to contact me if I can be an aid or resource to you in any way. I truly am...

At Your Service,

Gavin Palmer "the Jabberwock"

A couple immediate action items for the new Chairman to oversee will be:

- Assign Council Members to committees.

- Put a Charter revision up to a vote (not overly complicated, but a few changes are needed, see this topic I opened up to the community for input): https://councilofelrond.org/forum/viewt ... 118&t=3786
I'm happy to help draft any necessary language.

These two above items will need to be addressed relatively quickly so that committee members can get to work, and so that the ROC has the necessary language in place to move forward with this years ARV.

Yours,

Gavin

While you offer to pass the torch, that doesnt necessarrily mean that the torch cant stay with you, right?
You really did such an awesome job during the last session, so i would very much like to see some continuation here and nominate you for another period.

I, for one, do not feel up to the task myself and would be perfectly content to retain an experienced, steady hand as chair!

For me chairman is not an option either, sry, got too much on my plate (finishing NE sending stuff next month, finding a job that pays ;) kids . . . I know these are the same for most, but I do not want to let guys down and not deliver on something

Also I really enjoyed the fresh wind Gavin brought to the position although he did bite of a huge piece of work for himself

still he would be available for a 2nd turn, I would 2nd the vote

yours Nicolai

I definitely agree here. One thing to think about tho if you do run for Chair again, Jab, is you already did MOST of the brute force "transitional" work 18+ months ago. So now you are mainly wrapping up URD?

I would think a (this) 2nd term would be a breeze!

So, I nominate "the Jabberwock" for Chair. :D

If Gavin is up for it, I would second nominating him as Chairman session 2019-2021.

He poured in lots of energy, gave direction, let others contribute, gathered support/ideas, and was very approachable. What more could one wish for?

as for committees, I will gladly reprise ROC and DC (Alternate Formats).

I agree too, there's no reason to change the chairman (unless Gavin doesn't want anymore).
Hrum, Hoom ! Do not be hasty, that is my motto.

I am certainly flattered by all of the very nice compliments. Thank you guys!

Okay then, since nobody else is eager for the position, I guess I can muster up the charisma to act as Chair for another term.

As all Council Members have now expressed their opinion, this matter will be considered closed.

Moving on, assigning members to committees is next. I will create a new topic for this.
