If you would like to nominate a CHAOS Member or yourself for one of the four available board positions please do so by replying to this thread.
Please note that three of the positions are currently held by me, Mark Walters, and Steven Lane. These are three year terms.
The third is a two year term that fills the position vacated by Jayson Gowdy (temproarily filled by James Tsai.) Please indicate, when accepting your nomination, if you wish to run for the full three years or complete the two year position.
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.
