First of all my fellow Realm members and me wish to thank you. It is those who are rolling up their sleeves, and as Sir Caetrel so eloquently put it, wrestling that bear for us! If you guys pull this off, then the rest is clearly on our shoulders.

It will be up to us the show you that we are worthy of you hard work and effort. I have made this very clear to my Realm. So I salute you!

So this is where we are on this, for the benefit of Defalcone and others elsewhere in the U.S. whom this may concern...

Baiter submitted a proposal for Senate to approve a tentative go ahead. This will come up on the Senate agenda, and as per the current procedure it will be discussed at one meeting and then voted on at the next. At this discussion portion we need to, IMO get 99% of Senate behind this. There are a few big bugaboos which Darkonians, rightfully so, are very concerned about. Core rules, how chapters could affect us down the road, etc...

If we get this go ahead, a committee reporting directly to the President/ EB will develop the needed documents. The committee's work will be done quickly, we have blueprints from other games, our past proposals, etc...The committee will then submit its documents back to Senate as an official binding prop AFTER the Exec Board has ironed out all of its issues.

In other words, the official prop for chapters will only go to Senate when 100% of the committee and EB have resolved all issues. We'll give Senate a bulletproof document, or we will have failed before we started.

This will be a slow process. I cannot guarantee any measure of success. We'll keep you guys posted.

The proposal passed Senate by an overwhelming majority today. This just means that Senate feels there is no harm in a committee drawing up Chapter agreements and contracts to be later voted upon. So we'll do just that, and once we have something solid we'll give it to the EB to iron out. Once the committee has a solid document that the EB will stand behind 100%, we submit it to Senate to be ratified as a bylaws addition, and following that it goes for an EB approval as well.

Right now the committee consists of me, Baiter and Ash. We do not really need help, but if anyone would like to join, you are welcome. We will do all work electronically.

For those interested, what we will be doing is:

Producing a Chapter Contract
Producing a Document to be passed into the Club bylaws defining chapters.
Ironing out any legal matters related to our current corporate structure

This sounds simple, but things like Core Rules, Chapter status and evolution, inclusion of a national database need to be worked out and there is alot of ground there. It is my intention to present a series of options to Senate wherever possible.

I would expect the Committee to have stuff for the EB by no later than the end of May. It will likely be much sooner than that.

Just to bump and let you all know this was not dropped. The avoid issues with two different major issues hitting at once this is only delayed until after the Senate is done with the bylaws. Many of us will take this up again as a hot issue.
