The annual meeting of the Logical Language Group Inc, will commence on
21 August 2010 at approximately 1PM EDT, on the llg-members list. The
meeting will be conducted by email. Members should be checking their
members list email at least daily.
I am calling for anyone (member or non-member) who would like to see
some topic discussed at the meeting either as old business or new
business, send me an email. It is easier to run the meeting smoothly
when I am aware of the likely agenda.
Because of a lack of adequate notice, there can be no consideration of
bylaw amendments, but they can be proposed.
Because I haven't been all that active myself, and was drafted into
resuming the president's job on short notice, I don't consider myself
sufficiently aware of what-all has been going on in the community in the
way of projects and activities. I intend to try to visit the IRC
channel a few times to get some inputs for a decent President's Report
to the meeting, and welcome any independent contributions (to my email
address) summarizing briefly what you think are the most important
activities and results achieved during the last year.
Non-members who may be interested in becoming formal members of LLG
should also attend. Please read the bylaws of the LLG in advance of the
meeting, and perhaps a few of the minutes of prior meetings, so that you
have some idea what membership is all about; we typically accept anyone
who evidence sufficient interest and awareness of what they are signing
Members (and perhaps soon-to-be members) - I am interested in seeing a
couple more people be added to the Board of Directors for the coming
year, since we are operating with the minimum three directors right now.
Again, please read the bylaws. Directorship entails a greater
commitment to activity and an interest in the sorts of organizational
details described in the bylaws.
We have not had formal minutes for the meetings of the last few years,
and Robin as Secretary feels that the archived llg-members mailing list
serves the legal requirement for minutes. But I would like to see some
volunteer prepare a concise summary of last year's meeting from the
archives that resembles earlier meeting minutes, which can be approved
at the meeting and put on the minutes page, so that people can briefly
see what happened. I could use this myself, ASAP, to help me prepare.
Ideally, said person will be willing to do this again shortly after this
year's meeting, and perhaps to use the archives to fill in minutes for
the missing years. (This is the sort of thing that can demonstrate that
you are interested in the stuff that directorship entails). Robin is
wearing enough other hats that it would be real nice if meeting minutes
are not something he has to spend time on.
