YETI Council Elections!!
« on: September 02, 2013, 11:44:48 AM »
Elections for First Year Representative and Webmaster

We are now looking for new additions to our great YETI council this year!  We need a new First Year Representative and Webmaster to add to our team and we want YOU to run for these positions! 

The new First Year Rep will, in principle, serve a term of 1 year.  However, they will have the option of running for council positions next year if they so choose.

First Year Representative (FYR):
The FYR is responsible for representing the opinions of first-year ALTs and other members of the community.  They have an equal voice with other members on the YETI Council and take part in all Council activities, such as event planning and preparation.  The role has historically been flexible, with the FYR contributing in whatever areas they personally excel at.  The FYR is also responsible for aiding in the transitional phase between YETI Councils, as their terms are offset from the other officers.  The FYR position is a great way to get to know members of the Yamanashi community quickly and to have a hand in creating a great experience for fellow first-years.

Who is First Year Rep Material?
Any first year ALT/CIR with a desire to get involved in the YETI Community! Friendly and motivated individuals are a perfect fit for the position.

Webmaster:
The Webmaster is responsible for maintaining the YETI website and doing regular backups. They will also continue to build the Yamanashi Wiki with the help of current and future volunteers. They must be active in discussions about standards and assist with creating templates and guidelines. Although the Webmaster is a member of the YETI council, they are only responsible for the website. If they wish to get more involved in YETI events, they are more than welcome to do so.

Who is Webmaster Material?
You should have the experience to feel comfortable doing the above. There is no real need to do any coding per se, just have the technical know how (or be able to find it) to do the above.

Election deadlines:

1. September 9th: Nominations
You can nominate yourself or nominate someone else that you'd think would be good for the position.  Make sure you let them know they are nominated and ask them to accept the nomination on the forum or through email.  Nominations can be made through email, Facebook or the forum!  You can just reply in this topic thread if you'd like.

2. September 13th: Candidate Blurbs
We need all candidates nominated to write a short blurb explaining why they think they would be great for the position.  we will post these on the forum!

3. September  20th: Voting ends
Voting will be open to the entire YETI community!  Votes can be PM'd to Swagnorious on the forum, YETI Council via facebook message or emailed to spaghetti.yamamama@gmail.com.

4. September 24th: Results will be announced on the forum!!

YETI council update!!

Unfortunately, YETI and Chandre have parted ways. However, Amanda Ramond will be stepping up and taking over the responsibilities of the secretary's role. It will take a while to get used to the role, but we look forward to working with her.

Also, just a reminder:

You can sign up for a YETI membership at the Welcome Party and the discount for that event will be applied automatically. YETI memberships are 3000 Yen.
