[9:17pm] kusa_chan: did everyone accept noms?
[9:17pm] sayyida: yes
[9:17pm] Poet: yep
[9:18pm] sayyida: well Joe O did not respond
[9:18pm] jtk__: We need a treasurer - even an acting will due. It can't be the chair.
[9:18pm] jokeefe: I noted who accepted in the meeting wiki page
[9:19pm] sayyida: yep
[9:19pm] jtk__: Is that it for this week?
[9:20pm] sayyida: I belive that is the case
[9:20pm] kusa_chan: if we can find an acting treasurer, we can vote in
[9:20pm] jtk__: Cool.
[9:20pm] jokeefe: I have not seen any others
[9:20pm] sayyida: one last stonewall
[9:21pm] jtk__: What?
[9:21pm] sayyida: no one else is here. Joe picked up his ball and went home
[9:21pm] jtk__: sigh
[9:21pm] jokeefe: I wouldn’t characterize it that way
[9:22pm] sayyida: well how else should I take him leaving and throwing a tantrum of emotion?
[9:22pm] sayyida: that is the only logical explanation I can come up with
[9:23pm] sayyida: he left because he was emotionally hurt after a rough week
[9:23pm] jtk__: Some people get overly emotional. Best too back off.
[9:23pm] sayyida: jtk__: that may be true, but he also had a professional obligation to at least respond with a decline
[9:24pm] jtk__: We should heal the wounds with kindness.
[9:25pm] jokeefe: aye
[9:25pm] jtk__: We vote an acting treasurer at the first meeting and move on.

[9:28pm] kusa_chan: aslo need a swarmwise manager
[9:28pm] sayyida: too many postions not enough bodies
[9:28pm] kusa_chan: So why is that an issue?
[9:29pm] kusa_chan: Why were so many positions put in?
[9:29pm] sayyida: *sigh*
[9:29pm] jokeefe: optimism
[9:29pm] jtk__: Joe O's idea.
[9:29pm] sayyida: Joe insisted we need more board members
[9:29pm] sayyida: to delegate the problems
[9:29pm] sayyida: right thought
[9:29pm] sayyida: however, not enough bodies
[9:29pm] jokeefe: Swarmwise suggests leaving positions open for new people to step into
[9:30pm] jokeefe: Key ones are Chair, Vice Chair, Treasurer and Secretary
[9:30pm] sayyida: I say cut it back to 3
[9:30pm] jtk__: Recruit then make positions active
[9:30pm] sayyida: good enough
[9:30pm] jokeefe: You cannot have a secretary = treasurer

[9:40pm] kusanagi: Treasurer. We have a nomination, but they did not confirm to anyone's recollection
[9:40pm] jokeefe: not that I saw
[9:40pm] sayyida: just crickets
[9:40pm] kusanagi: Which is an issue
[9:41pm] kusanagi: Now, chair and secretary can't be treasurer...
[9:41pm] kusanagi: What about Webmaster..
[9:41pm] sayyida: would you be willing kusanagi until the post is filled?
[9:42pm] kusanagi: I cannot commit to it. As it is, Mondays are my worst days. Trials are still ongoing, and I'm solidly booked 4-9.
[9:42pm] jtk__: It is low bandwidth
[9:42pm] kusanagi: Do you know how much bandwidth is already being used now?
[9:43pm] sayyida: can we hold a board or not?
[9:43pm] kusanagi: And starting the 15th, I start at SANS Institute
[9:43pm] kusanagi: Poet, see above.

[9:43pm] jokeefe: If we don’t have an treasurer we don’t go forward with the bank account until we have one.
[9:43pm] Poet: Hm kusanagi? I'm here for the web master nomination
[9:43pm] MeisterX joined the chat room.
[9:43pm] jokeefe: We can still do what we have done in the past
[9:44pm] kusanagi: I'm literally in the middle of asking someone, everyone.
[9:44pm] kusanagi: Poet, I know, but I think that both positions would be able to be held by one person for the time being.
[9:44pm] MeisterX left the chat room. (Client Quit)
[9:44pm] kusanagi: I cannot commit - my personal schedule for the next 11 months was done yesterday, and it's really bad.
[9:45pm] Meister_FL joined the chat room.
[9:45pm] jtk__: Got it - no arm twistinfg
[9:45pm] Poet: Hm, perhaps if it's only temporary. I'm not sure what the position calls for.
[9:46pm] jokeefe: starting a bank account, filing FEC paperwork
[9:46pm] jtk__: I can walk you through.
[9:46pm] kusanagi: Which we will provide help with.
[9:46pm] jtk__: FEC paperwork

[9:49pm] kusanagi: understandable
[9:50pm] Poet: Phew, and more time for me to think about it
[9:50pm] kusanagi: that's fine
[9:50pm] jtk__: We are done then.
[9:50pm] kusanagi: no, we have others.
