NZLARPS will be holding its AGM in mid-October, with a current expected date of October 9. Part of the business of the AGM is to elect a committee for the upcoming year. We are therefore calling for nominations for committee.
Based on the AGM date, the closing date for nominations is 18:00, October 2, 2018. The gap is to allow time for online or email voting.
Every candidate for committee must be proposed and seconded by two members, but they do not themselves need to be members at the time of nomination. If you are unsure of your membership status, you can check it on http://nzlarps.org/ or by emailing email@example.com. I will be contacting non-member nominators / nominees with information on how to join.
Nominations can be made by posting to the thread below, or by email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Any emailed nominations will be posted here.
There are five positions available.
- President - The President of the society shall be responsible for overall running of society, promoting the vision of the society, chair committee meetings, work for consensus in the committee, cast deciding vote in case of ties, attend meetings as society representative, liaising with all regional directors to coordinate the workings of the Society across New Zealand, managing matters related to the core function of the society, the first point of contact for those wishing to contact the society.
