Title: Charity Auction
Post by: Izumi Curtis on March 08, 2015, 01:57:34 pm
Hello, I was wondering when the list of nominees to benefit from this year's charity auction will be compiled and when a vote will take place or a choice will be made.  I am someone new to this entire process, so I'm not aware of the usual timeline of events.  Thank you!

Hi, the charity tends to stay the same over years.  When it did change it was announced on the forum and suggestions are taken and the board votes on it. (I am Peru sure it would be the board and not the convention staff members who get voting rights).
So unless a change has been announced,  the charity is (most likely) the Sunshine division's food bank.
Hope this helps.   (And sorry to staff/board if I got anything mixed up.)

We actually have announced a change in the last couple meetings -- sorry I didn't get the minutes from February up in a more timely manner to display this.  (Coming soon!)

This year we are soliciting suggestions for potential recipients.  A suggestion page will be posted online and a vote taken next meeting.  The recipient must be non-profit and non-political.  (The board reserves the right to reduce the list of suggestions before the vote.)

(no worries!  I know unless I personally hear something best to follow with the disclaimer of "unless"  ;D)

Question will the vote be available to anyone there, or registered staff?

Thank you for the information regarding the charity auction.  I submitted a non-profit, non-political organization for consideration.  I do not know if it will or will not make the cut for the selection process or be approved by the directors as it benefits local, homeless animals (cats).  From what I can gather, charities geared towards children seem to be the main focus. Sincerely, Heide P.

Since the charity has been picked I am wondering did this not happen or was it on a staff page only?

The voting happened at the April general meeting.  We voted for the Doernbecher Children’s Hospital Foundation.

I know.   I meant the suggestion page that we suppose to be posted online, I never saw it on the forums.  I am curious as it on a staff viewable area only or did it not happen?

It was indeed only open to staff.
