2012 Bylaws proposal draft 2

Post by President » 2012-10-07

The President on behalf of the bylaws committee presented the draft of the bylaws proposal to the Senate on October 6th at Burtonsville. Those in attendance expressed many opinions and the following draft is the result of the comments and opinions:

I will confirm but the next Senate meeting at which I would like this to be discussed in November 4th (same event as elections).

It needs a little proofreading. Order of the eagle got used accidentally in alot of spots in the awards section. Otherwise, solid. Nice job everyone that worked on this.

Heh, yeah names got moved around in that section. People are funny about the names of the awards. My live-in-editor (the Wifey www.ambitiousenterprises.com ) is going to review it for me for those types of things.

Ok. for those who do not wish to read here are some highlights.

Board of Directors will be elected so that half the board is replaced/re-elected every 6 months - this ensures continuity of leadership and direction on the Board.

Awards - Lord of the Realm is scrapped and replaced with 5 Master Orders for larger or continued contributions. Other minor awards included for minor contributions.

Membership vs Participation clearly defined and in accordance with the States understanding of membership.

Board roles and responsibilities clearly explained.

Noble Council role and responsibilities clearly explained.

Question, will the President, vice president and land marshal elected this year serve a six month term or a year and a half term? I would suggest a year and a half term.

Unless the Senate adds in a statement to such, elections would occur in April.

John,

I glanced over everything, I will look into it in more detail later. The only thing I saw that was missing (at first glance) was changing Order of the Sword as discussed.

Nice job in getting all that stuff in, and taking all that stuff out... that was a lot work, I'm sure!

Heh...want to ask about that one again....

For those not at the meeting. It was suggested that Order of the Sword become Order of the Axe. Since all other Armigerous orders are country symbols of old countries.

OH! And the Committee made the "Golden Spud" the Rookie if the Year to be kind....but based on talk at the last Senate meeting I suspect people prefer Golden Spud.

Dragons come from Sarum. I think wyverns come from Ramen. But I dunno, that is not mine, it was added either by you, the bylaws committee or the Senate last weekend. Dragons also come from Dragonhood 8P.

Order of the Sword is too good to not use IMO.

The greedy merchant priests of Ramen worshoped a gold dragon so say some of the Elvin notes on the matter.

Gerard is correct, in looking over my notes it was added after the initial version and is intended to reflect Ramen.

Rookie of the Year was changed by the Committee from Golden Spud.

Rookie of the Year is horrible. Please change it back to Golden Spud. We don't play Baseball. If someone thinks it non PC, they may simply choose to decline the award.

I agree with this.

Laconia gave out a golden spud award at their Olympics and people liked it.

I dont recall who coined the phrase, perhaps ancient mordomians or aquilonians, but i can honestly say that when someone said "that guys golden spud worthy" it was taken as a badge of honor by us "spuds"

it is a most venerable and honorable award and that is why it is part of this proposal.

best in class was also very common so that is in there as well...Order of the Mask (since most best in class was based on the players RP)....

Yeah, it has to be Golden Spud. Rookie of the Year is lame. Golden Spud or nothing.

Okey dokey...updated and cleaned up.

Clarified some grandfathering and added one.

This is obviously not the final, next Senate meeting people will have a chance to ask questions (if they have not done so here) and remove or add stuff.

Article of membership there are two "a"

Article IV.2
What is defined as eligible? Is it "members" at that day, or active "members",
Maybe "members" present at the day of senate should be added.

Those are the only two things I saw
