Voting Town Hall July 16th 7pm in the Gallery.

Agenda (preliminary)

  • Discussion of the two voting methods used in the election (How do the methods work.)
  • Discussion of how the votes were counted in the election
  • Discussion of what we can do better for the next election (Be positive :slight_smile: … everybody here is a volunteer and we want to have fun!)
  • If you are passionate about this subject join the team to propose changes to the board/membership. (There is nothing worse than someone who takes pot shots at what was done, but doesn’t want to help fix it)

If anyone would like to add a topic to the agenda, please post below.
Also please be civil in your posting :slight_smile:
And if you could do that before the 11th, I will make sure the agenda includes your topic (provided it is relevant to voting at MakeICT… :wink: )


#3

I’m not going to be there but I think having an election committee would be beneficial. Also a ratification of election results by the board.


#4

maybe we could get someone more independent to ratify them :slight_smile:


#5

Any more agenda topics for this meeting? I’m pulling a short presentation together.


#6

Thanks for filling in for me Kim. I am so sorry that I had to drop that one one you. ( My neice needed to see her Grandma before school starts up again and I promised I would ride with her as this is her first trip driving the entire way to Houston. Good news is she can go independently after that. :slight_smile: )

Here is a revised voting policy that I will bring up before the board at our August meeting: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1Itd5qn8e0ZE63hNHZ1Gup_snlk04ocV38ZEUJKJhnh8/edit

These are open to the admin list. I don’t mind granting permissions one at a time now and then, but if you’re interested in this kind of thing you should probably join the admin list. Contact it@makeict.org to join.

We also need to make sure we follow state regulations for nonprofits. (There are some legal requirments set out by the state.)
