2008 October 11th GM Minutes
« on: October 14, 2008, 10:16:34 am »
General Meeting of Altonimbus Entertainment
Saturday, October 11, 2008

Presiding: Michael Andrews, President

Meeting called to order at 11:40 AM

Forty-five voting staff being present, a quorum was obtained.  Agenda: Unfinished business, Good of the Order.

Fifty-one voting members present, achieving quorum.

Unfinished Business:
At the August 16th meeting, Guy Returno moved that we table the motion to amend Article 4, Section B, subsections 6 and 7 of the bylaws such that Secretary and Vice-Chair become staff-elected positions (rather than board-appointed) until the general meeting in October.  Motion to table being carried, and this being the October general meeting, discussion resumes.

Discussion included points about personalization of the election and interest, roles as functionary of the board versus department head, the increasing responsibilities of Vice and Secretary, friendship networking.

Charles moved to divide the motion, separating the amendments addressing Vice-Chair and Secretary.  Motion to sever passed unanimously.

Motion to amend bylaws such that Vice-chair becomes staff-elected: Sixteen votes in favor, twenty-nine against. Two-thirds majority of the staff not being in favor, motion failed.

Fifty-four members now in the room.

Motion to amend bylaws such that Secretary becomes staff-elected: Ten in favor, thirty-six against.  Two-thirds majority of the staff not being in favor, motion failed.

Good of the Order:
All staff were thanked repeatedly for their hard work make a fantastic con.

Mike apologized abjectly for the madness at the beginning of con regarding four “missing” screens that were actually in his garage the whole time.  In retribution, Programming demanded he sing “I’m a Little Teapot” – with the dance – before the whole room.  And you KNOW it’s on youtube.com.

Meeting adjourned to elections at 12:19 PM

It's really the panelists that got sorted by the missing projectors screens.  Maybe they should be sent the youtube link.

I for one wasn't terribly enjoying having to answer "Where's the projector, where's the sound?  I was told it'd be provided"

I must say that while the missing projector screens was a bother I was thouroughly impressed with the speed at which Jaki responded with ideas. I ran Hentai on sheet on the wall, but while I was panicing she had people to assemble the projectors and everything went smoothly. I really only heard complaints from panelists lol. Im sure these mistakes wont be repeated. :)

Correction - It was at the August 16th (15th?), final pre-con meeting that the motion to Table the Amendment was made.  Small detail, but I did panic a little when you said "September General Meeting" and I thought, "Oh crap!  Did I miss something there?"

As well and good as hello kitty pancakes are...

what actually happened at the meeting? A few life conflicts kept me from being able to make it and I want to know if there was any good new business/old business / good of the order that I missed.
