How do you all want to go about having some form of leadership?

I'm thinking best would be having a 'president' + a media relations 'officer'



Should we do a poll to narrow down choices and commit to a game plan?

I agree that starting out with one or two (3 max) people to do the organizing and official communications would be preferable. I don't see a reason for a full fledged board or anything like that at this time. Once we develop a consistent membership base, then we can explore other options for club officers and such.

I'm willing to help with "media relations". I've got some ideas & will post them up when I get home tonight - posting via cell phone sucks :P

I like this too. I wouldn't like the idea of 'running the show' by myself. :?

Poll - yes. Top 2 or 3 people win? Is that what you're thinking?

I was thinking a set of 2 polls...

First to determine what positions we exactly are trying to fill ( president/pr/media relation/council of elders/tribunal/etc ) and the second used to fill those positions

A poll might work. It could be hard for those of us who haven't met everyone to decide, but c'est la vie! Also, would need to find out who is interested in doing this. It wouldn't do to select someone who doesn't want to help out.
It's too bad we don't have more people saying they'll be at the meeting (current count is 6) - otherwise we could have a vote then.

I think its all going to boil down to a president/chairman and a PR/media director - Maybe more positions could be added at a later time once the number of us starts to increase.


I don't see 'president' being more than a figurehead title and being responsible for organizing events within the state.
The PR director would be mainly responsible for pr things :P


We'd all have access to the calender ( add/delete/modify events via the google calender )


I'm willing to toss my name into the hat, Jayme's made mention of wanting a role on the tribunal and lionseye and others have offered to do media things...


Who all wants to have a crack at this? Compile a list interested of parties and have a poll?

Sounds good to me, too. Maybe give folks a day or so to think about it and toss their names in?

I say poll up by Wednesday night, closed by Sunday night. Announcement on Monday morning. That will give everyone a chance to think things over and make a vote. But that's just my opinion - I like decisions to move swiftly :roll:

You should allow time (maybe 2-3 days) for people to throw their hat into the ring.

Then, allow a few days to do a actual voting Poll.

We're not at the brink of war, or saving the economy here people.

agreed - give people a week to think if they want to play and we'll put a poll up over the weekend.

i think as we go along adding people to our membership, we should poll every year to see if someone else may want to join the board, committee or take a position...i believe these positions should be (if only by title for now) president and vp...the vp being a chairmen of the marketing committee of which i wouldnt mind joining..I feel the president should not only organize the illinois events, but also stay in touch with the midwest and the overall LOST calender. Thus being the corridor of information between illinois and the rest. We might change this if it gets too heavy into a three member board: Pres communicating info btwn groups, executive Vp - organizing illinois events, marketing VP strictly promotion and marketing... I think titles are important to show some strength to new members or potential members...

I like the idea of strength behind titles... but just don't want it to go to anyone's head too quickly. :roll: You know what I mean? That's my main reasoning for having titles be a little more low-key. On the upside, of the folks that are on the IL roll call, I've yet to meet anyone that would have that issue...

Just sayin'.

Overclocked & I talked about that a bit after he posted - title don't have to be as formal as president or vice-president - just something with some credibility behind it.
