Meeting discussion


Sorry it took a while. The info below are the ideas that That we came up with during the discussion last Saturday.
 

 
First part we came up with:
System of Organization

 
The Realm of Canaur will be governed by a two body system. One body made up of elected members referred to as the Council. The second is referred to as the Citizenry.
The Citizenry is made up any qualified member of the Realm of Canaur general population. The other half will consist of those voted into position by the Citizenry known as the Council.

The Responsibilities of the Council:
Manage club activities
Organizing Practices
Presenting issues and changes for voting to the citizenry via chosen media
Keeping track of attendance and membership
Keeping track and providing awards and acknowledgements
Mediating problems between and with members
Using their experience to improve and enrich the Realm
Meeting once a month


The Responsibility of the Citizenry:
Providing a safe playing environment for themselves and those around them
Voting on issues and changes to the Realm
Voting on council positions


Qualifications:

Citizenry: Becoming of the Citizenry does not effect whether or not you can participate in Canaur events and activities. Canaur events are open to all participants. What becoming of the citizenry does provide is voting rights and official venue to voice opinion about the proceedings of the Realm. The qualifications are basic and upon achieving them the Citizen will receive their own fabric Canaur pelt.

Citizenry Qualifications:
At least have made one blue sword
At least 15 days of practice
At minimum, newbie level garb (the most basic level at which some one can pass at an event.)
Familiar with Dagorhir and Realm rules
Age limit 16

Council Members:
 Senior members of the Citizenry are encouraged to attempt these positions
There are here to act as a leader, representative of, and example for Canaur at large. Because they are in a leadership position, qualifications needed before being voted are higher than that of being a of Citizenry. The goal is to make certain that those in council positions are attempting to lead by example. There are six council positions. Three must be able to fill the role of President, Treasury, and secretary and if the school remains a school club, need to be a member of that school to qualify. The other three positions will fill what every role that the council has determined is required. Regardless of position name, all Council members are equal in their positions. All council members will receive a fabric pelt of a different color.
Council Qualifications:
Having already become of Citizenry
Attend Volunteer Events= 5
*Council can determine if any independent work done for the Realm can be counted towards the volunteer count
Are familiar with Safety tests
Is verse in Dagorhir and Realm rules
At least 30 days of practice

Voting
Voting For Council Members
If there are less applicants than seats the voting will be done to determine if it is yes or no on the individual taking the seat. If there are more applicants than positions voting will be done on a scale and those with the most votes take a positions.

Voting
Proposals and suggestions will be brought to the councils attention During meetings or at via detailed emails least week prior to meetings. The topic will be discussed during the meeting and the final version to be voted on via the forum. One vote per person.

Council meetings are open to all Citizenry.
With 3/4ths vote, the council can overturn a citizen vote. It is then resubmitted to be revote on by the citizens but it must pass with 3/4ths of the votes.


__________________________________


As far a system goes, those at the meeting enjoyed the "merit badge" concept. Where some will have correlating challenges that will progress in difficulty, but where no specific order is required to be taken. Perhaps as time progresses some of the more difficult challenges can earn some kind of title. But without the need of linear progression we can add tasks that accommodate a variety of activities of the group.

___________________________________

Increasing Community
Big/little- Encouraging experienced members to take on Newbies (kinda already happening emoticon)
Play more games that encourage people to learn names and get to know people.
Realm wide social gathering: Crafting days (just hanging out and people bring what ever Dag related thing they are working on or get help with something), after practice lunches and chillouts




This is what we talked about and decided we liked. So what does everyone else think.

Re: Meeting discussion


Could you clarify what you mean by "Attend Volunteer Events"? I'm not understanding what is meant by this.

Re: Meeting discussion


People who participate in events that are intended for the benefit of the Realm: First Friday, weapons making sessions. If we get to a point where people are interested in participating in the charity work clubs can do through the school, we can have the definition include that as well. For now, it's the stuff people do outside of practice for the realm.

Re: Meeting discussion


This looks like a good start. I like how well you folks thought this through. I think it would be important to see how it works in practice, so having a means to amend the rules is important. The 3/4 clause could be used for this, but perhaps if this becomes permanent, a true amendment policy should be included.


I like the name "Citizenry." I think this is VERY well considered, as we're not all clansmen, not all townsfolks, not all warriors. But - we are all citizens of the continent at large.

I'm not sure I like "Council" as much. Considering that Canaur is a collection of nations - some of them kingdoms, some republics, some theocracies, etc - I think the idea would be a collection of the heads of state. In today's terms, it would be a "summit" or something to that effect. I believe for our arbitrary time period, something like "Assembly" or even "Parliament" would be closer to the intended purpose. "Council" has the connotation of all members belonging to the same origin. "Assembly" sounds a little more like a gathering of different national officials.


Anyone have other opinions about that?

Assembly sounds fine, as well as a little Roman, to me.

Re: Meeting discussion


I'd also like some clarification on this, too, to help out anyone that tried to read this and wondered the same things I did:

quote:

There are six council positions. Three must be able to fill the role of President, Treasury, and secretary and if the school remains a school club, need to be a member of that school to qualify



I believe you meant that the three officers of the club should be council members if they are officers, but it sounds like what you're saying is that there are roles of president, treasury, and secretary in the council and that they must be occupied by students in the event that the group is still a club.

Re: Meeting discussion


That's what I [sign in to see URL] with out the bunch of typos I left in there XD. There should be, if we choose to remain a school club, three of the council (or assembly. I like that) must qualify to hold the RSO positions and will be responsible for those jobs. Just meaning they have to go to the school really. The remaining Assembly can be anyone that qualifies. So only three Assembly positions are named positions in that situation.

Re: Meeting discussion


If there are only 6 members in Assembly, then shouldn't the vote be 2/3 instead of 3/4?
quote:

I prolly should have caught that at the meeting, but you can't get everything, right?
