Sign up to Be on the Book Selection Committee!

We have discussed revamping our book selection process for several months now, but have been unsuccessful at explicitly defining the new process and putting it into action. So let’s see if our new blog can fulfill its mission and help us sort out this organizational glitch.

The skinny:

Book Selection will be announced 2 months in advance at our meeting and posted on our blog the following night.

Three members will serve on the committee

Each member will serve for 3 months, with one member rotating off each month and one member added. An official schedule will be posted for your reference.

Each committee will consist of 2 “voters” and 1 “proposer/voter”.  The 1st and 3rd month you serve you will only vote on which book you wish the club to read. During your 2nd month you will be in charge of proposing 2-5 books for a group (all 3) vote.

Confused? If so go back to the top of the post and read again. It can be a little circuitous but it is all logical if you sketch it out.

Now to get this machine in motion I will assigning everyone ***WHO IS INTERESTED*** to a 3 month term. Since this is a 3 month process it will take more than one year for everyone to have the opportunity to serve on the selection committee, thus I think we should start on a volunteer basis. If you would like to have a voice respond to this post or email caroline.downing@rbc.com and let me know to put you in the rotation.  I will begin posting assignments as you respond.
