Community & Marketing Manager Bylaw - Discussion of Second Draft

Posted Nov. 18, 2018, 6:31 p.m. by Fleet Captain Adam W. (Current Ruler of the Club) (Adam W.)

Thanks for your patience everyone with the Community and Marketing Manager discussion. I was pretty severely thrown off of my normal routine shortly before this discussion started and I’ve been working my way back towards normality since.

I took some time to go back through the discussion. I’m reposting the bylaw so we can resume the discussion, which will continue at least through November 28th. Some notes on modifications coming out of the first round of discussion.

  • I removed the listing of who the current President and MAC are to be consistent with other bylaws. The Librarian has sufficient authority to list them in the Library if that is desired and I have no objection if that were to happen.
  • I’m not planning to address Hemmingway Edict #18 in this bylaw. My thought is to revise that edict with another edict to eliminate the conflict about who is responsible for the Awards that would be created by this bylaw.
  • I updated the wording to remove that the CMM would coordinate all community events.
  • I changed the “Ten Forward Board” to refer to out of character boards more generically

For comparison sake, the original proposal was here.

Thanks everyone for your help in shaping this proposal. The first round of discussion was civil and productive and I’m hoping for more of the same as we continue.

Adam W.
