Nikki: My plan for this meeting is to run through the by-laws and give a description of positions. Since there aren’t many people on the dot should we wait for others to join?
Forrest: Should we just start so that for the new people we aren’t just sitting around waiting?
Nikki: Let’s do that
Nikki: *Begins reading bylaws*
Jake: A quick comment, any and all requirements for positions can be waved by group conscience correct?
Nikki: To my understanding, yes
Nikki: *Resumes reading bylaws*
Nikki: So would anyone like to nominate or volunteer themselves as Chair?
Jake: And there are 5 different essential chair positions correct?
Nikki: Yes, *lists positions*
Andy: I nominate Ariea
Nikki: Ok, Ariea would you qualify yourself?
Ariea: *qualifies herself*
Jake: So now it would be where we ask you to leave the room and we’ll discuss it and then have you come back in
Ariea: I’d also like to nominate Kole
Nikki: Kole, would you like to qualify yourself?
Kole: *qualifies himself*
Maxwell: So what we would do now is that the two people standing would leave the room and we’ll deliberate on the two candidates
Nikki: Alright Ariea, the group has voted you in as the new chair
Nikki: Next is the treasurer position, would anyone like to stand?
Lisa: I’ll stand
Nikki: Ok, would you qualify yourself please?
Lisa: *Qualifies herself
Jake: Congrats Lisa, you won
Forrest: While Nikki manages to get back on, I’ll read the bylaws for the next position. *reads bylaws*. Would anyone like to stand?
Shelley: I would
Kole: I would
Forrest: Would you both qualify yourself?
*both qualify themselves:
Forrest: Ok thank you both, would you step out so we can vote?
Nikki: Congrats Shelley, you are the new secretary
Nikki: Next is the third legacy, *explains position*
Jake: I nominate Forrest
Forrest: *qualifies himself*
Nikki: Ok Forrest, please step out and we’ll vote
Nikki: *explains outreach position
Multiple people: I nominate Kole
Kole: *Qualifies himself*
Nikki: Alright Kole, you’re our new chair
Jake: What are the other positions?
Nikki: *Establishes other positions*
Nikki: Would anyone like to stand for these?
Nikki: Since no one seems to and we can elect people into these at a later date this seems to conclude elections. Normally we communicate through slack, we should get everyone set up. We also need to set a date for the next meeting
Forrest: It’s Ariea who decides when but it may be best to stick with Sundays for the meeting
Ariea: That sounds like it works well, that’s September 13th? Then we’ll meet at 6 then
