Right now NAVED has no organization or heirarchy. I suppose we need to discuss a Board of Directors. I think for the moment that person is me. I was hoping to have nominations for four board members. The Chairman would be a tie breaker in any votes. Length of terms to be decided. So, anyway, I think I need nominations for four board memebers.
The board would draft rules, study incorporation, determine perhaps if it ever comes down to it expulsions (
). They also would set in place the framework for elections and other decison making processes. The membership could then adopt the boards plans or provide some other suggestions for the boards consideration. Ultimately, the goal is becoming an organization/club to help provide legitamacy and a home base to vintage divers, that is my thought.
I thought to have four board members because we are still very small. In time the board can be larger to reflect a larger memebership if need be.
I do not intend for this to become a complicated or "rule bound" moribund, dogmatic, non inclusive clique. We don't have to become anything more than the "fun" club we are now other than perhaps larger. So, it is up to y'all really to decide the character of NAVED. One other thing, unlike some of the other vintage and antique divng groups we are born of the internet, we have no specific local to call home, in some ways the internet is our home.
