Oct 16th Updates



    Good morning.  Just a few brief updates.



*US NC Election*



     This election has begun and we are in the Q & A section of the process.  Below is a link that you can visit as much as you like to become as involved as you want to be with the election as it unfolds.  It has the applications of the candidates and a link to the running Q & A.





     Our RC staff will be meeting with your Domain Coordinators this Sunday and this will certainly be one of the topics at that meeting.  After a survey and the conclusion of the Q & A process, we will meet again to take into consideration the SC Region survey results, the pulse of their Domains the DC’s have personally experienced, and from that I will have all the information necessary to make an informed representative decision on how our Region will vote.



     If you have questions you want asked of the candidates, please send them to Angela, sc.arc.adm@gmail.com , and we will combine like questions and send them in groups to the candidates.  Any obvious attack, or unconstructive questions will be filtered out.

*San Antonio Featured Game*



     Its is going to be awesome.  Mexican food, games, decorations, San Antonians, and even an opportunity to attend a Regional meeting which will will involve both the RC and the rst.  See Regional report or Becca’s posts for more details.



*Quoting the RC*



    I get several questions everyday which almost never have context to them, but I try to answer them regardless.  Please be thoughtful when using a decision I made, a policy I have set, or a quoted pulled from the middle of a paragraph to apply to a situation it may not fit.  If you feel that I have been misquoted, and wish to clarify please do so.



For example



    I have often said I feel there is no reason for an officer to ever have to yell at a member.  This does not mean that those members with positions can never raise their voice in or out of character, therefore the RC office has limited the artistic license of our games and stripped personal liberties from the membership.



*Conflict Resolution*



     I am swimming in sensitive organizational issues I cannot openly discuss, even with my own staff.  With that said, please strongly consider the lasting benefits of working a problem out through mediation, over the very fleeting victory accompanied with a tiny disciplinary action.  There certainly are situations where a DA is warranted, but for inner personal conflicts, true resolution often includes being willing to sit down and come to an agreement where your two parties can coexist within the organization. 



     Every issue pushed up to Regional that could have been handled by open discussion between members or a Domain level mediation, is less time I can spend developing new membership benefits for our Region.  I am happy to assist where it is truly required and beneficial, but where not needed, I ask everyone to please trust their elected Domain Coordinators to do the right thing.



   That is all for now, thanks!



Ricky Kramer

South Central Regional Coordinator
