Albeit I was hesitant to put anything in writing until the announcement on the 17th, this is a small PART of the board of directors for this upcoming term. There are still a multitude of roles open, including over half of the board positions and additional roles that are less of a time commitment. Things will be put into perspective on the 17th. The people in the photo have taken it upon themselves to organize events, speak to the club at length, file the necessary paperwork, reach out to new communities, be leaders at the few functions that we have had, and devote their time to the SC's function. Just to iterate, board responsibilities and positions are never permanent and have term limits. The general point of the meeting last night was to set an itinerary on the 17th so there will be nothing helter skelter about it. It was also to speak to Michael, the awesome, exceptionally funny, owner of Mad Hatter. Chance Michaels, the man who has pushed everything forward legally and has years of experience operating in the non-profit world, also let us know that the yet to be named supporters group is officially filed as a 501(c)(7), meaning that we are legitimized in the eyes of the government. Do not look too much into things, everything will be explained on the 17th.

I'm just curious as to how board members have been elected at this point? What's to stop someone else from starting another supporters group by filing paperwork et all?

Nothing at all. A lot of teams have multiple SG's.

The board members were "chosen" because they were the ones who took the iniiative to get it started.
