Post by Lilith Ivory »

[09:17] Callipygian Christensen: Hi Aliaasi - glad you made it, I know your schedule makes it hard
[09:17] Callipygian Christensen: ok - since I pulled the trigger on this meeting, I guess I will begin and call us to order
[09:17] Aliasi Stonebender: funny this was the easiest possible day. just made the mistake of napping. let's do it.
[09:17] Soro Dagostino: Welcome Aliasi.
[09:18] Callipygian Christensen: Welcome citizens, SC members, and thank you for attending on short notice.
[09:18] Callipygian Christensen: Our procedures allow for the calling of such a meeting, and I have done so to address the absence of the current Dean.
[09:18] Lilith Ivory is taking the transcript
[09:18] Callipygian Christensen: Thank you Lilith.
[09:18] Lilith Ivory smiles
[09:19] Callipygian Christensen: It is my understanding from Coop's partner that he has been very ill, but I have no word from Coop at all to indicate his health or his situation that has him 'missingin action'.
[09:20] Callipygian Christensen: I don't believe anyone else has heard from him either.
[09:20] Lilith Ivory: I haven´t
[09:21] Callipygian Christensen: I am not going to presume or assume anything related to his health or well-being, other than to hope that whatever is going on resolves itself positively and soon.
[09:21] Aliasi Stonebender: certainly not I.
[09:21] Soro Dagostino: I have not. Tried to connect with him, he didn't answer me.
[09:23] Callipygian Christensen: We are however a government body and need to be able to conduct business, even though things are thankfully peaceful and quiet right now. Lilith and I ran the election that has just completed, because it had to be done, but I think the preference of everyone is to have someone 'officially' in the role ofDean, pro tempore, until such time as we establis what is happening with Coop.
[09:23] Callipygian Christensen: ANy comments or thoughts from SC members?
[09:24] Aliasi Stonebender: I mean, the rules of the SC past those set constitutionally are pretty much the SC's business.
[09:24] Lilith Ivory: I agree we need someone to receive challenges and such so the SC can react in time and no challenge gets lost
[09:25] Soro Dagostino: All of the present members of the SC have served as Dean.
[09:26] Callipygian Christensen: Ok - then I think we are in agreement. I call for nominations for the roleof Dean Pro Tempore, until such time as the current Dean
[09:26] Callipygian Christensen: 's situation is resolved.
[09:26] Soro Dagostino: I nominate Lilith.
[09:27] Callipygian Christensen: thank you Soro.
[09:27] Lilith Ivory: I accept the nomination :)
[09:27] Aliasi Stonebender: is this the sort of thing you need to second? Because I'll second it
[09:27] Callipygian Christensen: Second call - any further nominations for Dean Pro Tempore?
