The Board of Director's - The PR & M Position
- Fellow barbershoppers,
It is so important to have a full time, year round PR & M position on a
Board of Directors!
I can't for the life of me understand why all chapters don't think that this
position is deserving a board placement. There is so much that can be done
and should be done to network the chapter and build the Chorus's image in
the community. Take it from me, IT IS A FULL TIME JOB.
It is my opinion (and I sense others in the ranks feel the same way), that
until the Society at least deems the PR & M position mandatory for Plateau
II chapters, the membership numbers will not change and the Society will
continue to stagnate. Plateau III chapters would have a hard time
functioning if they didn't have a full time PR & M guy. It's one thing to
talk about networking and building relationships but it's another thing
actually doing it.

In response to Terryl Wolfrath:
Our Chapter has 60 members with about 45 regular attendees. Our
consists of Prez, VP Music, VP Dev., Sec., Treas. (the Executive), a
Past Prez, and 6 MAL's. As long as you have the 5 Exec. positions
covered, I don't think there's a Society rule which says you have to
have any more positions.
A Past President is handy to have around for his experience plus
him some special projects to manage (like the Annual Officer
Installation, Dinner & Dance, for example). The 6 Members At Large are
good for Chairing important committees and keeping our Executive
These 12 guys represent 1/5 or 20% of our total membership. It's
interesting to note that 12 is the minimum number of members a Chapter
needs to maintain its Charter. In this set up we need 7 for a voting
quorum, which we've only missed once in the past 2 years. It's a good
idea to have an even number of Board members, and have your President
vote on motions ONLY in the event of a tie. That way you can't have a
perfect split vote, and if members abstain or are absent, the President
can cast his vote to break any deadlocks.
Hope this helps!
