Well, it looks like that the officers of the CPA will be as follows:
Nick, XSRACINGGT -Director
John, Itsaleftlanething -Assistant Director
Hank, HANK -Co Historian
Steve, SteveKran -Co Historian
Ok, the first thing we have to do, is wait for the Logo voting to finish.
Second, we have to put the application in. I think I do that part.
Third, we have to see if we would like to make any otheradditions to our By-Laws, or rules of the Chapter. Basically, we have to follow the Overall By-Laws of the ORG. We can make any additions we want, based on our Chapter's needs and wants.
For now, all CPA discussions will be in the NC hometown section, so everyone knows to go to one place. Once we get the chapter up and approved, the Mods will make us our own section, at the bottom of the forums page. We can then discuss Chapter happenings in there.
It looks like choice A is going to win that poll. So, now we can tweak it so we can add it to our signatures. Once we get it tweaked like we want it, we can get some stickers made up, and some t-shirts made up. Hows everyone think about that? John has someone that can make the stickers thats really good. I think Hank has a lock on a good T-shirt Printer. I think the stickers would cost around $5-$7 each. The T-Shirts will probably cost between 10-12 depending on how we would want them. I dunno how much it will cost to mail the shirts to each of you, but, it will be added into the cost of the shirts. I figure the stickers will be the cost of a regular letter, so it will be made in the price. We are not making profit on ANY item for the chapter. Its against chapter rules. So none of you have to worry about that.
If we have any additions, ideas or whatever to add to the by-laws, we can submit them in a post esp. for this topic, as to not confuse anyone.
The Original Chapter by laws can be found here:
The officers need all interested members contact information. I need your first and last names, address, email address and Phone number if you want to give me that info. I basically need the addresses for the shipping info of the shirts and stickers and to try to have a better idea of where everyone is located so we can better decide on locations for events and Get-togethers.
The officers will contact everyone about important news regarding the Chapter through email. That way, you dont have to have access to the org if something comes up. I know some people at work cant log on because of certain regs and such.
The Chapter is open to Anyone in NC or SC that want to join, that has a powerstroke. But, you do have to also be a member of Powerstroke.org as well. Thats a given I think. be sure to read about attending events as to keep up with the ORG's by-laws.
This is all I can think of for right now, but I will add as I think of more info that needs to be presented. If anyone has info, suggestions or whatever, say it. Were all here to make the CPA the best chapter out there!! Any advice is ecouraged and we don't want you guys (and girls granny) to feel like you dont have any say at all in this. Us officers dont have any real power here, just to have some organization in the chapter.
