LongeCity is a membership based organisation. We are guided by our Constitution (Articles of Incorporation and Bylaws) which is drafted in line with relevant stipulations of the Code of Alabama and US law.
We are governed by a Board of Directors, that is elected by the Membership.All decision making power rests with the Board in the last instance. Members with a track record who are considering to run for Director should read this post.
Many former Directors still remain as 'Guardians' offering advice and the benefit of their experience. The Guardians take no active role in day-to-day affairs, but they can step in at certain specified points, when they feel that things are going awry or that the Board risk loosing sight of our mission.
The most important executive functions rest with our 'LeadOfficers'. At this time, Directors also assumemany Lead Officer positions, because the Constitution mandates that those roles need to be filled. However, this can be anyone with a proven track record and there is an open invitation for volunteers to step forward and apply!Some small compensation is paid to lead officers for their time.
Volunteers are the lifeblood and foundation of everything LongeCity does. Volunteerscould be short term, helping out on a specific task or project, or long term, assisting with a specific role.
Some of these roles include:
-Moderators who look after forum interactions,
-Engineers who look after the software
-Editors who look after content
There are many other opportunities to become involved. If you are interested, contact the Membership Coordinator or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org to find out more.
Incentives for volunteering?
Regular volunteers get integrated into leadership decision making processes.
All volunteers also get 'Thank You' points that they can collect and redeem for small prizes (gift vouchers or free membership).
Lead officers are paid a nominal amount based on activity and expenses.
