Agenda

  • CTO Nominations
    • Drew Kirkman has self-nominated
    • Vote Timeline?
      • Greg Resigned the August 19th
      • Our Bylaws state that after leader resigns, nominations should remain open for one week.
        • One week from August 19th would be August 26th (past without any nominees)
        • The request for nominations to fill the open CTO position was posted on 8/21/19.
        • VOTE: Should we close nominations on 8/28/19 (one week) or immediately?
      • If only one nomination the nominee runs unopposed. Per bylaws we are obliged to send out a remote voting poll and reach quorum. Bylaws#Elected Officers
  • Proposed vote for termination of the membership of Daniel McNamara
    • Proposal was made on August 21st by two separate members
    • The reasons for proposed termination are:
      • Repeated counts of uncivil behavior towards other members
      • Contributing to creating a toxic environment
      • Behaving in a manner that is counter to the positive nature Hive13 works to cultivate
    • Daniel had been up for termination before the election. We, leadership opted to allow him one more opportunity to be a positive contributor to Hive13. When his latest series of posts digressed into conspiracy theories he exhausted that one last chance.
    • Daniel was notified on August 21st of the proposal and reasons and informed that he may have his opportunity to be heard orally at Hive13 on Tuesday, Aug 27 at 7 PM if he so desires
      • Daniel has responded in an email to leadership@hive13.org that he does not intend to attend his hearing at at Hive13 on Tuesday, Aug 27 at 7 PM. He is still welcome to speak at this board meeting if he changes his mind.
      • Daniel has exercised his opportunity to be heard in writing via emails to both the leadership mailing list and the Hive13 general mailing list.
    • Does any member of leadership have any conflict of interest outside of Hive13 which would prevent them from making a decision on this vote that would be in the best interest of the organization? (record responses in the meeting minutes)
    • At this point in the meeting, give Daniel his opportunity to be heard orally if he so desires.
    • Conduct the vote on membership termination.
