Default Secretary

Quote:
(8) Finances

(8.1) A Treasurer and Secretary are selected by unanimous Administrator approval and ratified by member vote.
(8.2) The owners of the talkrational.org vbulletin license, hosted server account and domain name may be any member in good standing, including staff other than the Sys-admins. However, the Treasurer may not simultaneously serve as a Sys-Admin, own the hosted server account, own the message board software license, or own the domain name.
(8.3) The Treasurer, Secretary, and owners of the hosted server account, license, and domain name must provide real-world names and addresses to the Administrators.
(8.4) The Treasurer has sole access to maintain and manage the TR bank account and Paypal/credit/debit card, and provides statements to the Secretary.
(8.5) The Secretary verifies the statements and audit trail.
(8.6) These two officers are responsible to provide a transparent record of the account, donations, and expense to members.
(8.7) With the Administrators, these two officers are responsible for determining the need for donation drives and for running such drives.
(8.8) Expenses not directly related to the running of the board must be approved by unanimous Administrator vote and announced to the members.
Any thoughts on who would be good for this office? The main role is to occasionally check that the documentation about finances is accurate and the books are in order.

I suggested Nostrum cos I knew what her day job was but I appreciate your point about wanting someone who has been around longer. Those are good suggestions and I would throw Steviepinhead in there too.

Shouldn't someone ask tBe if he still feels the same way cos he did kind of quit in the heat of the moment.

So . . . are we doing anything with this? Or am I free to start embezzling our $170 since I have no one to report the activity to.

still waiting for more input. Fauna, Jet Black, VoxRat and I have to agree unanimously and then we will ask for member ratification in a TSO poll thread.

Also by me.
We've heard Nostrum's willingness to do it.
