Latest from your Senescal- Provincial Honors and Elections

Unto the Province and Ridings therein I send greetings!

At our last monthly business meeting we circulated the Provincial Honors (Hereafter referred to as Malagentian honors) proposal that our team has labored to create and put forward for our consideration.

As per that discussion here is a copy of the proposal for your consideration (see below). The proposal has been entered as new business and usually that will mean a vote at our next meeting, but in the interest of making sure everyone has enough time for careful consideration, we will discuss the proposal at next month’s business meeting and then put forward for a vote at the December business meeting.

Please direct any questions you have to me and my deputy.

Lastly, please keep in mind that it’s time to start thinking about who will be running for officer positions for next year. Nominations will be opened at the November business meeting with elections following in December. If you are interested in running for a position please do the following:

Go to the current Provincial Guidelines listed on the website and familiarize yourself with the position and its requirements, e.g. attend business and officer meetings, submit budget requests, attend events, etc.
Contact the current officer holding that position and discuss what demands, challenges, and benefits the position has.
Make sure your membership is up to date- I have to confirm this for all nominees.
Get nominated and win the election… easy as can be.

If you have any question concerning the election process, please contact me and I will be happy to answer any of your questions.

Thank you,

-Christian
