    Only thing (as I understand it) is, you can be a grower and not have to be 18. But I'm not sure even Spec can do that, let alone research.

    Well, John is an officer of BACPS, and hes under 18, why the age requirement? Also, college rlly dun come into consideration, as there would be re-elections every year anywayz. Just becuz a minor or two are officers, dun mean other organizations will shun you... so yea... besides I think we all kno he aint really a bad person... sure he got banned, but it wasn't for something really bad, he wasn't really purposely trying to hurt anybody, or even have any bad intentions at that..

    NepG, it seems like you are being a bit shallow. He wuldn't have any CP's if he couldnt grow. Not to mention, about 18 months ago he did a tissue culture project, and got a 50% success rate (50% of the cultures died in vitro, and about 10-20% of potted plants hardening off died... and that's pretty darn good if you ask me.). It also takes a lot of research to learn and suceed in tissue culture, you kno.
    i bet he could easily lead the tissue culture projects in NASC as well. he's probably more capable then yu at that kinda thing no offense...cuz i kno youre like nep master..but this is the sarracenia thing not neps... yeah ok that's all for today kids. Thank you have a nice day full of friendly encounters and good luck.

    Me 3. I think spec would do a great job. Even if he is under 18, he might be able to represent younger people's interests in this organization.

    Thanks, Matt for your input. First, BACPS is local, not national, so there is a much larger thing going on here. ICPS is also national, and international, and no board head is under 18. Ever. Adults deal with adult issues, and we still will value the input of our younger members, that is for sure. But in charge? Not happening when you are national. Besides, Spec is where he should be. Being groomed for future dealings with larger issues. I am glad he is where he is at, because he will be a good grower, and leader in his own right, and in his own way. I still think he should be a grower too. I have confidence in his ability to grow a wide variety of CP. But a member is all he can be until he is eligible for election when he reaches 18. That is all that can be said for this. I know for his, and others positions, it sucks, but you will still have the chance to grow the plants, study them close up and first hand, have the species and locales you are looking for, and by the time you garner all the necessary growing skills, time to step up and be elected, and do your best to spread the plants and augment bogs, if called for.

    You guys are going over your heads with this whole "age requierment" thing. I don't think age should have anything to do with it. It isn't anything but a number in every way possible and isn't a reflection of the person. Many organizations have minors that represent them. Big organizations, as a matter of fact, bigger than this. If the person is capable of doing their job, who cares what their age is?

    Spec has had plenty of chances to prove himself. He's failed at it time after time. I agree with the age requirement but if it wasn't there I still wouldn't vote for Spec. Spec was banned for something serious. He broke the rules over and over. He harrassed other members. I personly tried to help Spec but he choose not to listen to me. If Spec can't follow the simple rules we have here I wouldn't think he could follow the guideline he would have to follow in something as serious as NASC.
    This will not turn into a Spec topic, if it does the post will be deleted and the member that posted it will be warned.

    Spec on the leader bord.... no comment, except he's great guy, but needs to be doing other things that aren't in a leadership postition on the NASC. As for the rest of the nominations. I like them. Also, where can I find the requirements to be an officer? I know I'm too young(15) but I just wanna see what they are. Thanks a bundle.
