I would ideally like to step down from the committee as I will be learning to juggle family life in the new year.

Anyone else want to step up to be secretary?

Hmm. I note that all roles are marked as seconded, even though there’s no actual post. So to avoid any confusion, I second all current committee members for their existing roles (except myself, because I’ve already been done).

Is there a description of the position requirements anywhere? It might help people decide if they’re up for it

At the top of this thread. I’ve done a detailed how to on how to be regional marketing officer, but none of the other positions are fully documented.

The high-workload local positions are treasurer and gear officer. In a normal year with monthly events, these people are paying bills and loading gear in and out every month. The other committee positions are largely governance: approving new projects, suggesting what we might do or purchase. Wellington has largely chosen to handle committee business online as it comes up rather than having formal monthly face-to-face meetings, which has worked for our workload so far. So its basicly a matter of having to pay attention to your emails and every so often comment on a diatribe thread. (This might change if we saw a much higher level of larp activity, but it worked for 2019 levels of one weekend-long campaign and a bunch of smaller events).


Thanks Idiot, there was a comment seconding all nominations but it has disappeared.
