TOPIC: Proxy Voting
Proxy Voting 3 Years, 10 Months ago Karma: 4
Hello all,

At tonight's business meeting we voted on one officer position and one event. For the first time in a long time, I actually received proxy votes. This got me thinking, we have had a lot of people come and go over the past few years, and there have been a lot of changes in the way things work. There may be a chance that people are not entirely aware of their rights as members, regarding voting, and this may be a good time to go over it.

As always, I strongly encourage everyone to read the Baronial charter to familiarize themselves with the policies of the Barony.

There will be times, at the Baronial business meetings, when a vote is required. It is the right (and I would say responsibility) of every paid member of the Society, who resides within the Barony, to vote on Baronial issues. Most of these issues will involve officer selection, event approval, approval for capital expenditures and charter changes.

It is not necessary to attend the meetings (although it is recommended) to vote on these issues. The charter makes concessions to allow for proxy voting.

The items that are raised at the business meetings will be listed each month in the meeting minutes. Those minutes will be posted each month in the Baronial Business section of this website. In general, the issues will be voted on one month after the issue was presented at the business meeting.

One of our hopes with these forums is to allow members who can not make it to the business meetings a place to discuss those topics prior to the item being voted on. With the final intent to be for those members to be able to submit an informed proxy vote on the issue.

To submit a proxy vote on any issue being voted on, please email the vote to the current Seneschal.

Both the Seneschal's email information and the charter can be found on this website.

Thank you,

Baron Aengus mac Farlane
