Annual Membership Meeting - Board of Director Elections

We have had a few changes in our Board of Directors that require that we elect a new Chairperson an additional board member.

Any member is eligible and can nominate themselves.  The chairperson will be officially added to the corporation, so be sure to look into the roles, responsibilities and liabilities associated with the position before nominating yourself.

The chairperson duties include:
Authority to schedule and announce special meetings
Shall preside at all board meetings
Shall prepare agendas for meetings
Exercise parliament control for Robert's Rules of Order 
Authority to make statements on behalf of the Makerspace
Authority to officially act on behalf of the Makerspace (sign leases, etc)
will be added to the corporate registration.

The additional board member is not an officially named position such as chairman, but they do act as an officer of the company and will be added to the corporate registration.

See our By Laws page for more information. https://wiki.melbournemakerspace.org/By-Laws#directors

      I agree the hangout is kinda hard to scroll back to find exactly what you need to see. So here or on a new wiki page for nominations. Shall I make one real quick?

    I nominate Trevor Schmitt, Shawn Nock and Dale Noble to run in the election. I am not running, but maybe my role could morph from 'Facilities Mgr' to 'Edu...something'. (That pesky German seems to have more passion for brick and mortar).
