- Apr 21, 2008The only problem I have is that historically, the Populace has always voted down the two year terms, since no one wanted to pledge more than a years worth of service at a time.Adolphus

Subject: [caeradamant_bylaws] am I reading this wrong?
Hi everyone sorry I missed the meeting but my son was getting an MRI
of his neck. Don't worry nothing serious. Anyway, I may be reading
this section wrong and if I am could someone please let me know. In
V.A. it states elections will be in January but in V.C.1. It states
"The candidate for an office will submit a letter of intent to the
Seneschal prior to the start of the January business meeting."
How can we do this if the populace has to know who is running at least
a month in advance? Can someone please clarify. I am also confused as
to why we are using V.A, V.B, V.C what is this about? Thanks for
setting me straight.
V.A. Officer elections will be held each January during the scheduled
Business Meeting (all years are modern):
V.A.1. In odd-numbered years: Exchequer, Knight Marshal, Herald, Web
V.A.2. In even-numbered years: Seneschal, Chatelaine, Minister of A&S,
Captain of Archers.
V.B October and November: Call for candidates for positions coming up
for vote. Notice will be given at the Business Meeting, posted to the
Populace list, and included in the newsletter (Fort Knights).
V.C. December. Letters of intent are due to the Seneschal prior to the
start of the December Business Meeting. Candidates for each office
will be announced at the December Business Meeting, as well as on the
Populace list and in the newsletter.
V.C.1.LETTER OF INTENT. The candidate for an office will submit a
letter of intent to the Seneschal prior to the start of the January
V.B.2. The letter will include the member's modern name, SCA name (if
applicable), membership number and expiration date, and a few lines
describing the request. Proof of residence is required (e.g.
photocopy of a current utility bill or Delaware driver's license).
V.C. Between the December and the January Business Meetings.
V.C.1. The Seneschal will ask that any candidates who so desire to
send a statement detailing his or her qualifications, reason(s) for
seeking office, and goals for their time in office. Responses will be
combined and posted to the Populace list.
V.C.2. The Seneschal will see that a ballot is created and made
available through the Populace list and the newsletter, as well as by
paper copy on the day of the election. The ballot will include the
names of any eligible candidates as well as a "none of the above"
option for each position.
V.D.1. Officer elections will be via closed ballot. Any Caer Adamant
resident who is also a paid member of the SCA, Inc. may vote in an
Officer election. Prior to casting a ballot, each member must show
proof of membership (membership card of Pikestaff mailing label), and
proof of residence (e.g. photocopy of a current utility bill or
Delaware driver's license).
