  • National Coordinator Election Survey



         Good morning.  Just a reminder that this survey is open for just a few more days and is vital for me to know the pulse of our Region so that I can place a representative vote with the opinion of our Region heavily factored into this important decision.  Taking this survey will be worth 5 Regional Prestige and should only take about 30 minutes to review all the candidates before making an informed decision.



    What does the National Coordinator do?





    Where can I find the Candidates for NC and their Q & A results?






    And where is the South Central Regional Survey worth 5r?







          Thank you for your time.



    PS- OK, really on the way to San Antonio now.

  • Nov. 1st: Four Updates




         4 brief updates.



    1. San Antonio Featured Game this weekend, it is not to late to make plans to attend.



    2. South Central Regional Website going live in 1 week.  Address will be posted in an e-mail much like this one, except one week from now.



    3. NC Election Survey will be posted today and will only run until late Sunday night (I have to vote by Monday night).  I want your feedback to help me make this difficult decision.



    4. I would like to thank Jeff Duncan for helping our RC team get the term started strong, but he needs to step aside for now.  Angela will be picking up the running elections and be starting the new as they come up.  Thanks again Jeff!



         Thank you everyone for your time.

  • 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.



    *SC Coordinator List*






    *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!
