    Yep, been pretty busy all year with work (our team got cut in half at the beginning of the year so the rest of us have to pick up the slack). However, I'm still doing the web administration in the background and hope to do more maintenance, feature improvements, and upgrades to the current site.

    I would like to push Dick @F6553066 (or anyone) to be a possible new "Social Director" officer at large position.
    He had a good point at his event: We rarely meet and hang out just for fun.
    The frag swaps and talks are social events as well of course.
    But we only do the one potluck each year.

    Having someone organize some sort regular of mini-swap / tank-tour / get-together might be fun.

    I would like to remain as Secretary. I would also like to talk with someone about the responsibilities of being the Social Secretary or whatever it is called.

    Being a member of the board does not require tons of time, just a willingness to do a little work for the club. Many of the board fill in where we are needed. I thought the Secretary might be difficult, but it isn't because the BOD do not demand a lot from me. Think about it, members. Maybe two of you could be co-presidents. We can do just about anything we want, but we still need to get the job done.

    This is a wonderful group and hobby. I would not like to see it fall by the wayside like other organizations have done. If you haven't tried it, you don't know if you will be good at it!

    OK, I have stepped down from my soap box!!!

    I read the responsibilities of the offices and I can do the officer at large or possibly one of the other secretary positions.

    I don't think you need to make another position for that. Pres or vp would leed the direction with the help of volunteers. Just my thoughts

    Thanks for the opinion. I feel like the swaps are the events that really overload the existing positions though. That's why I think it may work well. That way someone or two people can be the lead organizer for those events and let the other board members focus on running the club

    Maybe another person could do more as the president... Not sure anyone wants to be that person though? (Hint hint everybody out there) I am willing to go one more time, but as such I am more of a guiding hand and less of an upfront maker hapener type. If people are fine with that I'll go again. If there is someone better I will happily be a board member at large and offer the same thing I currently do.
    If I'm president though I would want some help with the swaps so I do t feel like I'm not living up to my duties.

    I'd be happy to help with the swaps. I'm new to Reefing and in no condition to be the president of BAR but I'd gladly support you or any other president after u. U guys have been a great help and support to me so much willing to do the same back who ever the next president.

    Assuming I join the BOD (someone has to vote for me right?:D), I feel like I would need to spend a little time figuring out how the club's governance works before stepping into a leadership role. Mike, maybe the "guiding hand" approach is a good one - let us new folks know what needs to get done, and we can bug the experienced folks in the group for help as we go.

    You only have to be voted for if there are enough people to choose from. Looks like we may actually get enough for a change!

    i'll go for either VP or Pres. Ive done both before. The pay sucks though ( zero $$$$ ) Up to you guys. Maybe someone needs a break to enjoy the hobby again. If those positions are not open I can squeeze into another role

    I believe they are both open? President is surely open, not sure on Michaels plans yet. And you do get the club dues paid at least!

    The best way to find your role is to come to the swap and meet people and talk to me about what you feel you might be able to offer. Thanks for your interest!
