I will be publishing a SOTC (State of the Club) on May 1st, 2008. It will discuss what's been happening and what the future looks like with the club.  It will include announcements made at the 6th annual Gathering. So if you want to hear them first, be there! Smile

Also, on May 1st, we will begin the first ever "C3VR Advisory Board." It will be 6 members, preferably a mix of male and female, to help keep C3VR the best club for C3 owners and enthusiasts.  I will ask for volunteers first.  Feel free to reply to this thread or email me if you are interested.  I don't think there is a need to have people voted into this position. I think just having 6 people that would want to be a part of it should be sufficient.  Of course, they should be active members, that visit the site on a regular basis.  Most of your involvement will be online, with perhaps a phone call or two if needed.  Your first "term" will be 6 months.

Thanks for your support!

Cool idea Mr Presidentee Thumbs%20Up  I think another good mix would be a mix of people in different regions.  And I wouldn't mind serving a term also.

Should be a SOTF.  State of the Forum. We ain't no stinkin club.LOL
 
We know what has been happening. You know the future. (Did you sell it?)
 
What will be the responsibilities of the Advisory Board?
Should it be an odd number to eliminate ties?
Maybe it should be made up of Lifetime members only. They have a vested interest.
 
You have my interest.

I certainly agree that the advisory board should be regulars that post frequently. If you don't visit the site on a frequent basis, it's difficult to know what people are concerned about.

SOTC - Thumbs%20Up
 
Advisory board - Clap
 
I would suggest the "normal term" be a year, but half of the initial board members be 6 months to start with.  That way instead of a complete turnover of members at one time there would be an overlap to provide some continuity on the board.

I think 6 months to start with is good, just to get the ball rolling.
If there happens to be voting within the board, I will be the tie-breaker.
I think it can be made up of any paid member, as long as their paid membership is valid through then end of the term they are signing up for.  I think membership on the board should be given first to Lifers, then Gold, then Standard... as mentioned, the higher the status, the more vested interest they have.

Responsibilities would be to keep tabs on what is going on with the club and site. Solicit opinions, ideas, comments from members to help direct the future of C3VR. Coordinate the info and discuss these items amongst the board to determine what if anything could/should be done.

Who else is interested?

Tux,
Adam wants volunteers. NO VOTING.
Six months is not enough time to get anything done by committee.
I agree with Norsky, 3 members for six months, 3 members for one year, then replacements are for one year.
Maybe these would be the people to bounce ideas off of. But I always felt comfortable sending a PM to Adam.
It may be difficult getting three women, but we must have at least one, to keep their perspective in any decisions.
 
Just thinking out loud.

I agree with your assesment Dave. Only exception would be the usage of my terminology for the word "vote". I will supplement the word suggest to be used in it's place if you like. Especially since all that Adam asked for were those who had an interest. Which you did...

" Maybe it should be made up of Lifetime members only. They have a vested interest.
"You have my interest."

You would be an excellant member on this board..... just my .02.....

I agree with you all, the board should be made up of the widest range of members, male/female, Gold/Standard/Lifer's, East/Central/West.  But also think 6 months would not be too short a time span.

I think the "future of C3VR" needs to be discussed in person-face to face in Hot Springs for all those who will be able to attend.THEN after everyone has had time to digest the idea and depending on what was said and by whom, THEN form the board. By the way, what's wrong with C3VR the way it is now? I don't see it as a "club". Why would you want to squelch all the ideas from all the members and limit it to 6 people and possibly stop having as many posts and the freedom that we now have? What is the "Advisory Board" going to "advise" us on? There is so much grey area here that that's pretty much all I can see. All we are doing in C3VR is using this site so that more people can interact for a common interest-it's the way we like and it WORKS! WHAT MORE DO YOU WANT??? I think 6 month terms are out of the question, Norsky hit the nail on the head. Also, using the word "vote" by the Advisory Board-does that mean that if they vote for something and it passes without a tie-breaker that it will happen or be over-ruled? Why don't the current people that have been planning things for their "regions" automatically be considered as part of this board. They have the input from people in their area and have been together at different functions and could best represent them. I would be interested once all the details have been ironed out and all the specifics are known.

Butch,
There is a rather small percentage of the membership that will be in attendance at the gathering. That is why there is no "official meeting" this year, nor was there last year. Our forums and email provide a much better method of communicating club issues with the masses.

I do plan to share some info first with members at the gathering, as kind of a "perk" for being there.

As for the advisory board idea... this is in no way meant to be the end all be all of what happens with the site/club.  It is not meant to "squelch" anyone's voice! It is more so a way to have point-people for issues. It seems to me that people hesitate coming to me when they have issues. So I figure if there is a "board" they can contact, or any one of the board members (plus me), then they may feel more comfortable voicing their opinions.  Also, it will help me keep things more organized, and keep ideas flowing.

The length, I think, is fairly unimportant as long as the people who are part of the board are active members.  And if there aren't enough people that feel this is a good idea, or not enough people that want to be a part of it, then it won't happen. It isn't necessary, it is just to try to make things a little more smooth.

I think it's a good idea.  Folks just need to think of it as a group of assistance to the president, instead of a governing body.

Think of it more as the Communication Team.....

This should provide better insight to needs of the Registry members. In doing so some of their thoughts / comments / oppertunities can be brought to attention and discussed / resolved in a more timely manner.....
