Formalising the group/club

Formalising the group/club Empty Formalising the group/club

Post  gunboat diplomat on Fri Apr 20, 2012 3:35 pm

Dear all

Some of us met in the pub after Sundays game to discuss putting the organisation of our group on a more formal footing. This was felt to be a good idea to help spread the organisational load, improve resilience on things such as the maintenance of the web page/forum and because money is starting to change hands albeit in small amounts.

We agreed we would convene an AGM to formally discuss and agree things and there is a separate post by MJ to determine the best date for that.

We also agreed to open debate on the forum to ensure maximum opportunity for people to contribute ideas, views etc. prior to the AGM.

I thought I would start the ball rolling by suggesting some outline principals that we need to be clear on.

1. Who is ‘the group’ and what is it for/about?
2. What formal roles need to exist in order for the group to function. How are they appointed and what is expected of each role?
3. What does group membership look like, how do you join, contribute etc.
4. What standards of behaviour and conduct should we expect of each other? In what sort of style do we conduct ourselves?

There is clearly lots of detail to be worked through and I would welcome any thoughts on any other guiding principals or requirements to this outline post.

In terms of 1 as a straw man starter for ten I think;

We are a club who meet a number of times a year to play Kriegsspiel. Kriegsspiel being map based games with umpires where fog of war plays a crucial part.
We have a website (and own the domain name) as our ‘window on the world’ and encourage discussion and involvement in Kriegsspiel through it. The discussion forum is a key part of that.

I am very conscious of not setting out my personal manifesto here so would like to encourage any views on point 1 before canvassing on any other points. I think its important to have a clear sense of what we are and what we do before moving in to too much detail on other matters.

So, views, thoughts, feelings??

Warmest regards


Steve
