Call for General Member Volunteer for the Ad Hoc Charter Committee (AHCC)

Call for General Member Volunteer for the Ad Hoc Charter Committee (AHCC)

The work of the AHCC has unfortunately been stalled by a vacancy in one of the General Member Representative positions.

In the Second Pride 2010 Committee Meeting of 13 September 2009, Membership Representative Keokipele Ansar put forth a motion for the formation of an Ad Hoc Committee to review the current Charter. The motion passed unanimously.

The purpose and function of the Ad Hoc Committee is primarily to examine the language of the Charter and recommend revisions to provide more clarity and specificity in areas where it is needed, especially in the sections regarding "Committee elections" and "General Voting."

The current standing Committee also recognizes that Second Pride (by virtue of the international LGBT community that makes up its membership and which any elected Committee serves) is a living, growing and evolving entity in its own right. Therefore, it is also the charge of this Ad Hoc Charter Committee to incorporate and recommend changes regarding the mission statement, goals and objectives of Second Pride to reflect the aspirations and concerns of its internationally and otherwise diverse membership.

Additionally, the Ad Hoc Charter Committee will include a review of the following proposed amendment for possible inclusion in a revised Charter document:

The Elswit Quimby Ambassador Amendment

Delete "A Second Pride Ambassador" and "The Second Pride Ambassador Role" under Staff Roles
Delete Ambassadors under Term Limits
Under Elections, delete Ambassadors, and change Section 2 and 3 to reflect the Chair and Committee members are elected by the registered general membership at large.
Also under Elections, delete ambassador reference in item 9.
Also under Elections, delete last two sections under Application Forms.
Delete reference to Ambassadors under "General Voting"

We find the aggrandizing of any member for doing their job in past Prides unneccessary, elitist and confusing. Leading to special privledges and the possibility that past tenure gives special weight to an individual's opinion or standing. It is quite easy to look us up if any current Chair needs advice. More to the point Pride does not need a formal memorialized group who think they have a
special right to say "When we did it...."
[proposal submitted by Capabilitytodd Elswit & Eric Quimby to the 2010 Membership Representative via in world note card and posted by them in the "General topics" section of the forums.]

Any and all interested parties should contact me no later than Saturday, 14 November 2009. The Second Pride 2010 Committee will make a decision about the replacement Representative at the next public meeting on Sunday, 15 November 2009 at the Second Pride HQ at Four Bridges North. This will be serious and demanding work.

Thank you for consideration.
