We've got a lot of things to cover in one very meager post so I'll get right to it!
This brings me to the second announcement. We are not having a standard election. Normally we'ed go through the long and arduous process of nominations, letters of intent, the Councils narrowing, and finally a vote. Under the current circumstances this process would be incredibly time consuming and inevitably lead to the same results. So instead of having a period of nominations, the Council determined two replacements they felt most qualified for the task at hand. These members were contacted and asked if they would be interested in the position and both gave consent.
And now for the final part. You, the Membership, still have the final word in this matter of who best to represent you. Unlike previous elections this won't be a choice between two or more members for a seat. This is a simple yes or no.
If you vote Yes: These members will join the Co13 ranks.
If you vote No: These members will not join the Co13 ranks.
So without further hesitation....
the Council of Thirteen?!
NiallJC1984: Has been an active and supportive member for some time. He's been nominated twice in other elections and has frankly been deserving of a spot for longer than I can recall.
Guildenstern: While newer and possibly less well known, Guildenstern is an active member of the hobby forums where he regularly posts his fine work. He even took charge of the painting competition for a month without even being asked to!
Now normally there would be a poll attached to this. But I wanted to make sure everyone read this thoroughly and posts their vote. preferably with feedback. This post shall remain open for ten days until May 31st at which point we will move forwards!
