Attending this year's Can't Stop the Serenity functions and not quite sure what to wear? Might I recommended an official Can't Stop the Serenity 2012 T-shirt or hoodie?
It's that time of year again! Time for the Phoenix Comicon and all the wonders and adventures that go with it!
If you've spent the last month in a coma or terraforming a distant planet, and thus you're not sure what Phoenix Comicon is, check out their website here: http://www.phoenixcomicon.com/
So for May, we're changing things up a bit. Shindig is officially moving to Tempe Marketplace at the Harkins Cine Capri theater. Showing is at 7pm, get tickets early to ensure good seats, and we'll be meeting up no later than 6. If you don't see Browncoat type people outside the theater (wear you Serenity shirts, I'll be planning to wear my Jayne hat), we're probably inside in line. Afterward we'll inevitably be going for food so bring some extra money for the post shindig debrief. We had a great time for The Cabin In The Woods a few weeks ago, and I hope to see as many people as we can this Saturday. If you want to see it before that, or in 3D, we won't hold it against you, but this is the time we're planning for the group meetup.
Elections for the Arizona Browncoats 2012 year have begun. We're discussing it now on the Membership Forum. The forum requires membership but post on AZ_Browncoats or email firstname.lastname@example.org if you're interested in getting in on this action.
First is if you think you can contribute to the organization as an officer or as a member, but you're concerned about the $12 ($12 that goes toward CSTS and our other events that tend to benefit CSTS in one way or another), don't worry about it. If you've got something to contribute, we'll work something out.
The other thing is, these roles are important. Not just because our Browncoat movement will dissolve without strong leadership, but because we've become a notable figurehead in the local geek community. Sure the 501st and Ghostbusters are more visible (costumes... we really need costumes), but people expect to see us and are happy when they do. We're the underdogs who took a cancelled tv show and became one of the most active fan organizations in Phoenix (and increasingly Tucson thanks to Shelby).
I can't believe it's been a year as the President of The Arizona Browncoats. What a ride! Thanks to my fellow officers Lisa, Cindy, Raymond, Ivana and many more shiny folks for making this one of our best years yet!
We will be holding elections starting April 18th (today) beginning with President and Treasurer. Then moving on to Communications Director, Secretary and Events Director.
To be an eligible candidate for these positions you must be at least 16 years old (except for the positions of President and Treasurer you must be 18 years old), a General Member of the Corporation, and otherwise legally competent. If you are currently a member of the corporation, please remember you must renew your dues by May 1 in order to keep your membership and in order to take office, if elected to an Officer position.
If you would like to participate in the vote or even run for a position, but are not currently a member, no problem - just make sure you sign up before Saturday! The membership form is up on the website" (www.azbrowncoats.org/Membership) and you can pay online, send us a check or pay the Treasurer in person by Saturday 21st. If you have any membership questions, please feel free to email email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Below is a refresher review that was written by Jenn and is an excellent description of of Board of Directors postions.
