Theis, I am sorry but I do not know who this guy is. Is there any chance you'd be able to ask him and see if has any ideas?

You guys should probably note that in an obvious manner or you re liable to get people showing up that think that it's a regular league.
The club certainly needs a secretary in a bad way. I can't even remember the last news letter. There hasn't been many of those in the last 3 or so years.
What's does being secretary involve? That may be a position I'd be interested in.
The Secretary is responsible for taking meeting minutes (either he or she does it and finds someone do it--thanks Kevin!!). After that, the minutes are written up and sent to the rest of the EC for approval. Once the minutes are approved, the Secretary posts them out here, perhaps through Topica (although that will likely be phased out next year), and if they are really, really good, to get them posted on course boards.
The Secretary is also the lead person in getting newsletters out, ideally at least four times a year, and perhaps up to 6 mailings a year. Important information to convey includes announcements about elections, general meetings, events, work days, picnics, parties, hangings, etc. To foster better communication, the Secretary needs to be in almost constant communication with the other members of the EC to get them to share in the communication process. Having good writing skills is a big asset for anyone who is Secretary. A Secretary with some internet skills is plus as we'll want to send electronic newsletters when possible to save money and time. Once the NL is laid out, it must be printed, folded, addressed, stamped, and delivered to the post office. Extra copies should be delivered to league directors and DGW. A conscientious Secretary will likely be spending 20-30 hours per month.
I think I've got all of those qualifications. Does someone have to nominate you for these positions?
Come to Olathe GLOW. I have lights for sale, and, we have a rather large ACE fund....
