GOG ADF member
Hey kids, let have an election! Yes, it's time for what will hopefully
become GOG's tri-yearly election for officers.
Right now what we're asking for is people interested in running for the
offices available that are listed below.
If you're interested in running please send an e-mail saying what office
you're interested in running for and giving a brief (100 words or less) statement
about why you want the position.
Candidate statements must be received no later than
October 6th to be included in the ballot.
We expect to be sending the ballots with candidate statements out by
October 13th. You will be asked to return the ballots by November 3rd
**by US snail mail** so voting will be anonymous.
All office terms are for 3 years.
Newly elected folks will take office at Samhain.
You must be a current paid-up ADF member with Grove of the
Other Gods listed as your Grove affiliation to vote or to run for office.

Offices up for election:
currently in the position: Norma Hoffman
-Oversee or run the eight major holiday rituals. Coordinate the running
of the major holiday rituals and, if necessary, ask for volunteers for
the position of Druid in Charge. The SD should not be running all eight
-Oversee or run the pre-ritual briefings for each of the eight major
holidays. Coordinate the assignment of ritual roles, before and during
the pre-ritual briefing, or assign a Druid in Charge to do so.
-Oversee and host the eight major holiday rituals and workshops or ask
for volunteers to do so in their place.
-Oversee the Dedicants program meetings or appoint a volunteer to do so.
Create and distribute homework assignments for the Dedicants group.
Organize new Dedicants groups when necessary.
-Provide clergy counselling for members of the Grove. This is an
important part of the SD position but the performing of this duty should
not interfere with the SD's personal or work life. Time management
skills are very necessary for the sanity of the SD.
-It is the SD's responsibility to fill out Grove reports and quarterly
paperwork necessary for the national organization. Also any other
paperwork required by ADF national is the SD's responsibility to fill
out or delegate another member to do so.

workshops. If Scribe cannot attend a ritual or workshop they may appoint
someone who will be at the event to do the writeup for them. Writeups
should include a full list of who took what parts, an overview of the
character and feeling of the ritual and a listing of the omens and their
interpretation. (This should be more like a newspaper report than a
personal report, although personal feelings and reactions can be
included, with discretion.)

events, and the number of attendees. This is necessary for the quarterly
Grove reports to ADF national.
