Question When would it be time?

I've often wondered... Who else would like the CL spot for South Carolina? So I figure this would be an excellent time to introduce this as a "non-stop" nomination thread to see who is really serious about the spot.

Quote:
3. Chapter Leader Qualifications: In order to qualify as a nominee for the Chapter Leader position, the candidate must be at least age 21 and a registered user on FTE for a minimum of 60 days at the time of nomination. (Clarified 01/27/2009)

4. The Chapter Leader Election Process: To select a Chapter Leader: After notifying a Regional Chapters Moderator, a thread in your chapter forum shall be opened for 30 days to take nominations from willing candidates to fill the position. When the nomination poll is closed, FTE will provide a list of approved candidates from that poll for the final vote . A 14 day poll will then be opened for the membership to elect their new Chapter Leader from this list of approved candidates.
CL guidelines here: http://www.ford-trucks.com/forums/76...-1-2008-a.html


....For those interested.

Seeing that i have previous experience starting the Fla chapter i would consider it but right now i have too much on my plate sort-a-speak. I do wish we could generate more interest here but thats how some of the chapters are unfortunately.

Rich,
I wouldnt want to take your job but IF you are stepping down I would like to be considered. I too, would like more activity in the SC chapter. Im not sure why there isnt. The biggest reason IMHO is the lack of active members and the ones who are are spread all over the state. Its hard for most of us to drive 2 hours for a supper g2g and drive home. I see Macy8 quite regularly but unfortunately I have never met the rest of you.

Wiz, youre like second on the totem pole around here so Id give you my vote for CL unless you didnt want the job.

Thanks, I appreciate it Wiz.

Rich Id like to get a brief run down of daily duties before I jump in to my intent head first.


I really want to go to the autofair but I dont think I will be able to. My dad and I run our family lumber yard and building supply and hes deffinately going so the only way I could go is if we close down for the day. We open from 8-12 on Saturday so by the time I drove up there it would be almost 4 so its probably not worth the time.

Ill let you know.


Whats happening with the:
Gun range
Santee
April 20th car show G2Gs?

I had a gentlemen today call me 2 miles down the road inquiring about some tunes and is a member on here but did not know this Chapter existed.

To me the key is staying active with stuff and promoting the Chapter on FTE some how? I have been a member of FTE since 2000 but really did not know of this Chapter until an email blast about last years G2G at Lake Murry.

Kris I have never met you and I am sure I dont have much of a say since I am a newbie but you would certainly have my full support also..

Mike

Thanks Mike.

A buddy of mine from Conway tuned my 04 F250 with a custom superchip tuner. Pretty cool how you can change all the parameters on a laptop. Much better than the standard off the shelf tuners. I set top speed to 249mph but I cant seem to hit it. Maybe its the tires

This is some of it in a nut-shell- also some of it has changed a bit. But this should give you an idea.

The way things are currently arranged... The most amount of "advertising" that we can do is either through the Mass PMs or catch phrases in the Sigs. Other than that... it's "illegal" to post copies of one thread in mulitple forums.

Rich,
youre wanting to step down? Please dont get the wrong idea Im greatful to considered for this position but if you want to keep your "job" youve got my vote. I dont think anyone is unhappy with your ability and performance as chapter leader.

If you just want a break, Ill be happy to step in if I make the popular vote.


The April 20th show is in Lexington (near Columbia) and is primarily a mustang show. There is also a show at "South of the border" which is a pretty decent MCA recognised show. I won concours gold with my Boss there in 2005.

...kinda... and a Slight possibility of going out of the country for about a year (flying home maybe every 90 days-for a wk).



If no one is quite ready, I could always use "help" from a "Co-CL" (non-official title).
I think the only thing that would be different would be the new member approval process (to my knowledge, now- their can only be one).
So I would just be approving members but everything else from recruiting to sparking new action/activities on here would be "shared".

With Kris being down where he is, he would be an ideal candidate.
I really miss seeing some of our coastal members on here. Maybe someone familiar with happenings on the coast would be better at getting Chapter wide g2gs in those areas...and the same for a CL (currently me) in the n. western part of the state.

We have enough members on the roster that we "technically" (perfect-case scenario) could have 25-30 people to turn up (not including family) for either regional g2g(s).
