CHAOS ELECTIONS 2018 - Board of Directors (3 Years)

If you would like to nominate a CHAOS Member or yourself for one of the three available board positions please do so by replying to this thread. 

There is nothing in the bylaws which prevent a director from voluntarily contributing monetarily to the club but above and beyond money the board of directors is comprised of people who are devoted to the club emotionally, physically, mentally, intellectually, and socially; what they really offer is ideas, encouragement, making connections for the club as well as within the club, giving the club direction, community building initiatives (e.g., identifying and fostering future committed and active members), and enthusiastically and energetically promoting the club’s mission (which is, first and foremost, education and community involving home and craft brew).

 

Board of Director Member Responsibilities include (but are not limited to):

  • Must be present at a minimum of 9 (out of 12) monthly board meetings (attendance may be via telephone, i.e., someone who is present putting you on speaker phone);
  • Must contribute time and energy continually and substantially to the benefit of the club. This may include but is certainly not limited to: being present at club events (classes, festivals, etc.); organizing and arranging the brew house; participating in online and in-person discussions.
  • Discussing – and subsequently approving/denying – requests and proposals from Officers;
  • Making contacts and reaching out to people on behalf of the club (including potential and current partners);

 

Directors can, should, and will be subject to removal “with or without cause” (according to the bylaws) by simple majority vote of the other board of directors. Basically what that means is that Directors must indeed continually and substantially devote time and energy to the club lest other directors deem you are not “pulling your weight” and vote you off the island.

Note: Any posts that are not a nomination (this includes discussion about candidates) will be deleted without mercy.

I'd like to nominate Jon

I'd like to nominate Jon Phillips. 

A constant fixture at the club and one of the folks who immediately stepped up volunteering and brewing from day 1. I think he'll be an excellent addition. Plus, he makes some pretty solid beer!

I'd like to nominate Rich

I'd like to nominate Rich Rawlings, though I bet he'd say he's too cool for it. Rich has been a member for a long time and can provide some old man perspective to the board. He's got a lot of good strong opinions and would be an asset to the club in this position.

I nominate Jay Gowdy.

I nominate Jay Gowdy.

He was in the running last year and barely lost out in an all-star ballot. Since then he has relaly helped out with supervising new brewers, organizing and presenting the beer school ideas, and brewing competition los-I mean, winning Scottish Lights.
