Talk:Board of Directors

Actually, I would disagree with this equivalence; the board of directors is not always the convention committee. To use the two models with which I am familiar: The board of directors of Midwest Furry Fandom, Inc. are independent of convention staff. The board selects a chairman, who then selects the convention committee, which serves at his discretion. This model is actually inherited from Duckon, from whom MFF lifted wholesale adapted its bylaws.

Anthrocon, Inc.'s board of directors is comprised of some (but not necessarily all) of the Anthrocon department heads of the convention committee. While I'm not sure if it's required in the bylaws (Giza can elucidate, I'm sure), custom has been that as soon as someone is no longer a department head, they are no longer on the board of directors. This is closer to what you are proposing, but as you see it's still not necessarily equivalent.----DuncanDaHusky(talk) 19:05, 26 March 2007 (UTC)

I'm all for having separate articles then, or at least differentiating the two in the same article. We should just be sure to provide for lots of detail, though.
We don't have any particularly fancy bylaws in AC -- because we HATE meetings and procedure. Board members are generally appointed by Kage with Board approval. And yes, all Board members are department heads. (But not all department heads are Board members. Bringing new people on the Board is somewhat like a papal conclave.) --Douglas Muth 19:21, 26 March 2007 (UTC)
