Thank you, Jo, for posting this list, and for trying to post a link to information about the election meeting. However, at least when I click on it, it simply links to the forum section that lists prior meetings' information, with no new item since the info on the 8/22 meeting. I wasn't sure if this is a redirect error or if it just means, keep checking this part of the forum, and when the meeting is set, you'll see a new thread stickied here?
Thanks again,
Much love,
Rem.

At this time, I'd like to defer my nomination for Director of Publicity. It's a great honor, and I had a lot of fun being Ally's assistant this year, since I like learning new things, but I'd like to take a bit and think about it.

Do you mean decline?  "Defer" means "I'll decide later," while "Decline" means "do not include me in this election" while saying nothing about future elections.

If you are deferring, don't take too long ;)  I have to print the ballots, you know.

I did mean defer. There's a few conversations I need to have before I commit to accepting.

Before I do anything else there is one thing I need to say; Brandon I am sorry.  It was not fair for me to make the statement I did about being able to do a better job than you; sure at that time I didn't have some additional facts I've heard since then, but also it wasn't fair because quite frankly this year was different; anyone would have had a particularly hard time doing the job especially in relation to my main criticisms at the time of the rant and rave.  Once again, I am sorry and hope you can accept the preceding apology.

Next, I must say that I am sorry for misusing the time of everyone involved in tracking me for this election.  Everyone I've spoken to who /would/ actually know about what's involved with the job says I'm making a mistake even trying to run.  More or less I'm anti-politics and was just following the "if you think you can do better, try to do it your self" line of reasoning.

Please withdraw my nomination and acceptance as of this time.  Though I would still like to experiment and attempt to answer as I would have otherwise anyway.  My inclusion in that part of the process might yet yield alternative ideas that will provide benefit.

Is it possible to post the resposabilities of each position?  It might make things easier for those who'd like to nominate someone for a position, or help someone with deciding whether or not to accept their nomination.
I have a new blog!  It is an anime-themed discussion site.  Please check it out, and share your two cents!

Unfortunately, the bylaws only stipulate assignments as depicted by the board. Meaning the duties of any of the Managing Directors may change in a given year. However, to help show you what is NOT within the jurisdiction of certain Managing Directors (unless otherwise decided by the board) here is what the Bylaws do outline:

(Excerpt from Section 4)

B. Duties of the President

The duties of the President shall be to:

1. Preside at all Meetings of the organization if not otherwise specified;

2. Call the annual Altonimbus Entertainment Board Meeting;

3. Have general supervision of the affairs of the organization;

4. Personally represent the organization on proper occasions and in business contacts;

5. Appoint any person or committee not otherwise ordered by the organization;

6. Assist all other Officers and Managing Directors of the organization in their records, correspondence and other organization duties;

7. Act as Chair of Kumoricon.

C. Duties of the Vice President

The duties of the Vice President shall be to:

1. Assist the President with all organization, business, and management;

2. Perform the duties of the President in her/his absence;

3. Act as Vice Chair of Kumoricon.

D. Duties of the Secretary

The duties of the Secretary shall be to:

1. Keep a record of the minutes of each Board and Membership Meeting;

2. Handle all organization correspondence;

3. Give notices for Membership and Board meetings;

4. Maintain records of Member names and addresses;

5. Authenticate records of the corporation.

E. Duties of the Treasurer

The duties of the Treasurer shall be to:

1. Collect dues of all Members;

2. Maintain organization financial records and deliver financial reports to the organization annually or when requested by the board;

3. Maintain organization banking and bank account.

F. Duties of the Facilities Liaison

The duties of the Facilities Liaison shall be to:

1. Oversee contractual dealings with facilities, including but not limited to hotels and convention centers, where Kumoricon and other major Altonimbus Entertainment events may take place or are taking place, or may have or has agreements relating to lodging of event attendees;

2. Represent the interests of Altonimbus Entertainment as determined by the Board while acting as an intermediary to such facilities as described in Paragraph 4.F.1;

3. Research options for facilities as described in Paragraph 4.F.1 for future Altonimbus Entertainment events, as needed.

Unfortunately, the bylaws only stipulate assignments as depicted by the board. Meaning the duties of any of the Managing Directors may change in a given year.

I disagree that that is unfortunate. It would be unduly restrictive to the organization if a bylaws change were required to change managing director duties. Additionally, the bylaws allow the board to assign additional duties to the listed positions.

The listing of the duties of some positions stems from the fact that they are officers, not just board members, and in fact some of the officers (President, Secretary, and Treasurer) are required to exist by Oregon law for this type of organization.

The best single way to get an idea for the duties of each board member is to check the org chart:

http://www.kumoricon.org/open-positions

Please note, as has been stated elsewhere, this can change year-to-year. But it's a good indicator, as traditionally we have not hugely revamped it in a given year.

Having the informal listing would help as well; hence my question to former directors about what their duties included.

Relations is:
Guest Relations
Industry Relations
Charity Auction
Dealers Hall
Artist Alley

Or, in simpler terms:
We get guests and assist them at con
We get prize support, swag bag stuff and viewing permissions
We get stuff for the auction and run it
We get to say who can and cannot sell at Kumoricon, both in dealers hall and outside of it

I'd post a link to the org chart, but I can't find it.

Oh, in the past, we had them in graphical formats, but I don't think those have been created for a couple of years. It's easier to just be based on the automated version.

I nominate Elizabeth Peterson for Director of Relations.

Who?

Lizzie was Assistant Director of Realtions in 2010 for Sakura-Con. She had to step down after con due to the fact that she moved down to Vancouver for school. Given that's she's in the Portland/Vancouver area (and literally two blocks from the new venue), it seems like a good idea.

Plus, Sarah is running unopposed.

I would like to nominate Aaron McPherson (Washougal_Otaku) for Director of Relations.

... And not just because he's the Director of Internal Affairs at our anime club, yo.  :3

I accept.
I have a new blog!  It is an anime-themed discussion site.  Please check it out, and share your two cents!

The list is updated with the additions so far.

If you know someone with the status "awaiting response," please have them post their response as soon as possible (and direct them to the Q&A thread).  If they don't have a forum ID, they can accept, defer, or decline their nomination by emailing secretary@kumoricon.org -- though that wouldn't allow them to participate in the Q&A thread in the forum.

Thanks!

The list is updated with the more recent additions.

If you know someone with the status "awaiting response," please have them post their response as soon as possible (and direct them to the Q&A thread).  If they don't have a forum ID, they can accept, defer, or decline their nomination by emailing secretary@kumoricon.org -- though that wouldn't allow them to participate in the Q&A thread in the forum.

In a few days, I will be printing the ballots, so online nominations will have to be closed.  I will post again at that time.  However, you will still be able to propose candidates for write-in, and those candidates may participate in the Q&A online and at the elections meeting.

Thanks!

I am going to respectfully decline. After giving it much thought with my husband I simply do not have the time to work as Director again. Between living in Seattle, working longer hours at my job (I just put in a little over 80hrs this week) and other responsibilities I don't feel I can provide what's needed for this position. My health couldn't keep up when I tried.

I enjoyed working with everyone and did what I could with what little time I was director. I wish whomever gets the position the best of luck and hope they find good help for the department. :-)

Pyro, the guy loves to promote Kcon. He was very involved with registration in the months just before con, and I feel his desire to see the con grow and function well as paralled by few. While he may be busy, and the need for a good registration manager is high, I would like to nominate Aaron "Pyro" Tietelbaum for Director of Publicity.

Acceptance is up to you Pyro, but at least this plants the idea in your head.

After several long conversations and some personal soul searching I have decided to Recsind my original Declination of the nomination for Publicity. I now choose to Accept this nomination gratefully and hope to be considered by the staff for the position.

I want to be where I am needed and where I can do the most good for the convention, and right now, I and some of my closest confidants and friends feel that is Publicity, and I am excited to run for the position to fill that mantle!

Is there a list anywhere to match names of nominees to their forums user name?  I'm not sure which nominee is responding when they answer questions.

Thats a really good question! I am surprised it hasn't been brought up before...

I can tell you I am Ally Fields, erm.. Bresslol is Jon Bressler. Rathany is Dawn Hewitt.
Pyronine is Aaron Te*ahem*baum

Most of the people who are nominated and answering questions should have a
staff title, if you look up the staff list you will see the staff position and can probably
match that to the name on the forums...

I think... I'll check this out..

Yes, for staff: http://www.kumoricon.org/staff-list

For the benefit of non-staff, here are the ones whose forum names don't correspond to their real names:

Beau Gentry - BigGuy
Jaki Hunt - Jamiche
Brandon De Vore - kalagei
Phillip Koop - Snorlax
Aaron Teitelbaum - pyronine
Misty Knight - irnogs
Aaron McPherson - Washougal_Otaku
Dawn Hewitt - Rathany
Elias "TJ" Stinson - Griffion
Robert Trotter - Dealrith

Some others on the list haven't posted yet.
