As you probably know if you're a BARGEr, Board of Directors elections started today. As you also probably know, I'm a candidate.

My platform is pretty simple: I believe that the primary role of the board should be to support and assist the organizers in making BARGE successful, to provide strategic guidance when requested by the organizers, and to fulfill the legal requirements of BARGE Inc. I firmly believe that the BARGE organizers should be in the drivers seat. with the board in a supporting role.

If I'm elected, I will give the organizers all the support and assistance that they want, and will stay out of their way and not meddle when board assistance is not required.

I think the calcutta has run its course, and I would personally be in favor of replacing it with something else rather than continuing to do it. However, I don't think my opinion on this as a (hypothetical) board member should carry more weight than my opinion as a member. There's a difference between them running BARGE in a way that I personally disagree with and running it in a way that lots of people disagree with. I can continue to support someone without endorsing every decision that they make.

If the organizers start to run BARGE in a way that the majority of the members don't like, that's an entirely different situation. I think that's so unlikely, though, that I can't imagine it actually happening.

I think the current organizers are doing a spectacular job, and I expect that they will continue to do so. The last thing in the world that I want is for someone to come onto the board with a laundry list of changes, for the board to try to assert itself in an organizational role, or for there to be conflict between the board and the organizers. The primary responsibility of the board is to appoint the organizers, and after that I think the board should basically provide assistance to them as requested and otherwise stay out of their way.
