    First of all, we would like to accept any new nominations for the position of President. There will be a vote soon to make it official. So if there is anyone out there that feels like they can handle the task and do a good job, please speak up.


    Secondly, we are forming 5 committees and we need nominations for Commissioners for each. The Commissioner will have people working under him for committee specific tasks. He will be responsible for organizing his chairmen and delegating responsibility. Basically, the commissioner will be the "advisor" of the committee. Working at pointing his people in the right direction, review of data collected and working with the other committees.

    The commissioner will also have a vote. There are certain things that can not be put to a public vote for various reasons (time being the major) so minor things will be voted upon within the higher-archy (for lack of a better word). All of the commissioners shall have a vote, along with the president, secretary and Treasurer. This brings us to 8 votes. How to handle a tie will be addressed in the by-laws which will be put to a public vote.

    The committees and possible nominations are as follows:

    I. Inventory committee:
    Commissioner: Mike King or Paul Temple (both have/had National Collections)


    II. Placement Committee
    Commissioner: We need to find someone familiar with Herbarium/Bot. Garden Directors. Carl Mazur possibly?


    III> Maintenance Committee
    Commissioner: Someone with knowledge of issues regarding potential hybridization and/or and educator capable of drafting a workable model


    IV Cost Committee:
    Commissioner: You need someone with experience in standard business fairly large scale operations. Paul Luebbert (this recommendation was made by another member)?

    V. Public Relations Committee:
    Commissioner: We need someone with good PR Skills: Jason Wills?


    We also need nominations for Secretary. I (or the newly appointed president, whatever the people decide upon) will assume the role of treasurer for the time being. There is not enough need at the present time to have a separate person take the position. Also, most of the costs at present are being absorbed by myself, and all costs in the near future will be going through me (in-corporation costs mainly since I am filing the papers)

    Please share your thoughts on any or all of this.


    Paul

    At this time, I would like to nominate Suzanne (PlantAkiss) for the position of Secretary.

    I would also like to nominate Carl Mazur for the position of Commissioner of the placement committee.

    I'd like to nominate Bugweed for Maintenance Committee. He is quite knowledgeable about the plants and genetics, etc.

    Bugweed is relatively new to the forums but is not new to CPs and their culture... and in fact is known to quite a few top CPers. And this is pretty much Bugweed's idea and dream. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]
