    Default MCO Board Redux: Have Things Changed

    This thread started in the lead-up to to the election of the 2014-2015 MCO Board in November 2014: http://forums.midnightruns.com/showt...2462-MCO-Board

    It's now March 2016 and the Board composition has changed again, going even younger and even newer.

    Have we made any progress? Do things seem different from the outside looking in? Have the changes been positive?

    Your observations would very much be appreciated.

    Will the silly politics ever change? Likely not. Would be nice though.
    Be mindful that a position that affords decision making power doesn't provide the ability to do whatever you wish (not pointing at you) in a not for profit organization with existing bylaws and guidelines.

    Web site and forum look nice and are up to date and relevant.

    Don't Facebook but I heard social media engagement is better.

    If an event isn't profitable without burdening volunteers with expenses normally covered by the club perhaps the viability of that event sound be reevaluated.
    Probably going to hell.

    Ive enjoyed the feel at the autox events I was a part of last year...the team event was epic. I hope to take part in some lapping this year, and see how that's changed..if it does or can? The banquet was definitely an old fogies event -- holy shit. New venue maybe?

    Happy with the outlook and the new use of the site and social media! Lets get youtube humming w/ properly edited videos. Or vines or something.

    Interesting thing, often when people use the bylaws argument what they claim is in the bylaws isn't actually there. That's happened a couple times in the last few months.

    Funny how memories work sometimes.

    Other comments are being considered.

    Tim, that was a better venue than years past, amazingly. The banquet is something that the board is already thinking about.

    I was referring to the requirement of putting certain things to a vote and/or table at the AGM.

    There are very few things that require a vote by people who are not on the Board. Pretty much the only thing the Board cannot do independently is amend the by-laws, that requires a special meeting.

    Well ok then. I stand corrected.

    But your answer speaks to my original point.

    I wish I was only getting 20 a day.

    If you're not interested I suggest replying to all saying you want to be removed.

    Terry must not have your email then. I count 38 on the cc list, plus the board.

    I like the tree house club.

    Keep it the wire wheel or else people die.

    m'k?

    Seriously though... looking forward to getting back in Autocross with Julien.

    Oh Terry does have my email. But thankfully I pretty much have never been to an mco meeting so he doesn't add me. Woot?
