Current membership:

1. Duke
2. Cincinnatus
3. Tmth
4. Spamage
5. AverroŽs Nix
6. Simfan
7. Oakvale
8. Ben
9. Miles
10. Cathcon

By my count we have 1 current Senator, two current Governors, a cabinet member, multiple legislators, and former officeholders as well.  Pretty impressive.

Okay, so I think three positions for leadership are what I would like to see. Chairman, vice chairman and a secretary.

Chairman - oversees everything, everyone reports to him.
Vice Chair - focuses on the GOTV effort and is heavily involved in recruiting
Secretary - keeps Wiki and bylaws updated.

I think three is all the positions we really need, as I feel more just makes things complicated and communication and message will get mixed up, but that is merely my opinion.

Also, I will be preparing the bylaws for us to begin discussing and ratifying as soon as possible.

Am I correct in stating this is a generally centrist party (I'm in the midst of making a wiki article) also which image will be our logo.... is pink our color (basing it off of what griffgraph used) and should Glory to the People; Today, Tomorrow, Forever! be our slogan?

Yes. And pink is a fine color, perhaps we should all design something as our logo and see which we all like most... and go from there. That sounds like a catchy slogan.. but let's sleep on it before we go with anything else.

Tomorrow we need to have formal declarations for the Chair, Vice Chair and Secretary positions. I have written bylaws for our elections, but we will need to decide how to handle reelection - whether we do the approval system or have outright elections each time. So much to do still! But I have to get some sleep for class tomorrow.

Okay guys. We need to begin the selection of our leadership core.

Quote
Leadership
A. National Party
1) The leadership committee will consist of a Chairman, Vice-Chairman and Secretary.

2) The Chairman, Vice-Chairman, and Secretary shall serve a term of four months.
    i) The Chairman is in charge of overseeing day to day activities of The Party and is responsible for The Party's successes and failures.
    ii) The Vice Chairman is responsible for controlling the get-out-the-vote effort and orchestrating a plan for recruitment.
    iii) The Secretary is responsible for updating the wiki and bylaws as changes are made, and the leadership sections. The Chairman reserves the right to delegate additional duties to the Secretary when needed.


3) This term shall conclude at the conclusion of the leadership election and the new term shall begin immediately. 

4) If the Party Chairman shall be absent for the period of the convention, The Vice Chairmen is then charged with opening the convention just as he is charged with all other duties of the Chairmen, in the ChairmanĎs absence. The Vice Chairmen may delegate some of those duties to other highly trusted members off The Party at his discretion.

5) At all times, the Chairman, Vice Chairman, and Secretary must act appropriately and ethically in the carrying out of their duties assigned, and strive to avoid even the appearance of impropriety in their conduct.

That is for national positions so far. We need to discuss if we want to do the approval system for reelection of our officers or have full blown elections every 4 months, and I would like to set up regional chairs as we (hopefully) grow.

I have no objections to approval.  I do however have serious qualms with that ugly pink on our logo.

I prefer the approval system, as well as having regional chairs.

I agree, but regional chairs should be appointed by the Vice-Chair as he's directly responsible for GOTV efforts.

I agree that approval voting is probably the best method.

Pink isn't our final color. Don't worry Tongue

And yes, the chairman will appoint regional chairs, at least that's how I have it written up in my first draft.

I like pink Tongue  And I think the VC should appoint regional chairs, for GOTV purposes.

It's all about the shade of pink. I'm sure that's what Cinci is referring to. He's always been picky about his colors.

I would agree with you, considering regional chairs will be responsible for GOTV in their own region. It would only make sense for the VC to appoint them.

Also, please welcome HappyWarrior, ladies and gentlemen!
