Who Wants My Job?

by Brian C Woosley on June 14, 2014

 

As you all know, establishing a strong democratic social economy that is owned and operated by its members is key to achieving our mission.

 

Exactly 8 months today, you all made history by electing me as your first President of FanBox – a position that I have been honored to hold and work under.

Over this time, we have faced many challenges together as a community – and we have learned a lot about what needs to be done in order to work towards the solution to the problems that our global society is facing today.

And while we have made some great steps towards achieving that solution, there is still a lot of work that needs to be done to get us to where we need to be.

 

With 8 out of the 12 months in my term now behind us, that leaves just 4 months remaining until it is time for me to pass the torch to a newly elected President that will continue to work towards accomplishing our mission and overcoming the challenges that lay in front of the community along the way.

Because of that, it is now time for every FanBox member to begin considering who they want as the next leader of this community.

 

Perhaps that person is you…

…or perhaps it is someone else that you look up to and admire within the community.

 

Whichever the case may be, anyone that is giving serious consideration to running for office should begin making the necessary arrangements to do so as soon as possible.

 

What is the President’s Role? 

The FanBox President is elected by popular vote by the FanBox community, and is responsible for the FanBox Corporation.

The President represents the FanBox community and will help us move closer to completing our mission.

While certainly not limited to this, the President will:

·          Represent the community and ensure its concerns are being heard and its needs are being met

·          Run the FanBox Corporation -- meaning all top executives of the company report to the President

·          Serve the FanBox community for one term of 12 months, from this September 21st, 2014 to 2015. The President will not be eligible for reelection.

·          Live in San Diego, California, USA for the duration of the term

·          Help bring into fruition the laws and policies brought forward from the Senate and Congress, including finalizing the drafting of the Constitution

·          Work hand-in-hand with FanBox employees at its corporate headquarters, and act as a bridge between employees, members, statespersons and Success Coaches

·          Lead the Success Coach program and choose a President’s Cabinet from current SUCCESS COACHs

·          Prioritize product ideas and drive change

 

FanBox President Compensation 

Being the President of a democratic social economy like FanBox is a huge responsibility, as is moving to the corporate headquarters in San Diego.

To ensure this is a possibility, the President is offered the following compensation:

·          A monthly salary of $8,000.00 USD

·          Paid-for round trip flight to from his or her home, to San Diego

In order to concentrate on the role, upon his or her election, the President will not be able to continue as a Success Coach or earn on FanBox during the duration of the term.

However, the President’s Success Coach status and any of the President’s previous clients will be automatically returned once the term ends.

 

How can YOU become the President? 

It’s actually very simple.

First you need to be a Success Coach.

If you are interested in running for the office of the President, and are not a Success Coach, you should apply TODAY – as time is running out before the next election process begins.

(How do you do that? Speak with one of the FanBox Founding Mothers: Zoe)

Why must you be a Success Coach first?

 In order to allow the community the opportunity to choose a President that would serve them well, candidates are limited to those that have already shown that they are motivated to serve the community.

In other words, Politicians (including the President) must first be Success Coaches.

In this manner, we can be assured that they:

1.  Are well-trained on the workings of FanBox

2.  Have already demonstrated that they wish to serve community members

3.  Are interested in being President for the right reasons

4.  Are already very familiar with the ideas, issues, opportunities and concerns of the community

Politicians and Success Coaches have already been instrumental in making democracy a reality by guiding their clients towards success.

By providing them the information and tools needed to become Power Users, economy builders, and great community members, they have proven themselves more than capable of fulfilling this task of democracy and moving our community closer to achieving its mission.

 

Have questions?

Making the decision to become the next FanBox President is not something that should be taken lightly, and so it is natural that you should have questions and look for guidance from as many people as possible before entering into the race.

The success of our community is extremely important to me, so I want to let all of you know that I am here to offer guidance and support for any potential candidates that wish to run for President.

In order for us to achieve our mission, the next President needs to operate at a much faster pace than I have, so any way that I can mentor or bestow advice upon the next Presidential candidates to get them up to speed, I would be honored to do so.

In the coming weeks there will be more concrete information in regards to the election timeline, but for the time being you should begin to make the necessary arrangements to run as soon as possible.

Most importantly, if you are not a Success Coach already – you need apply NOW!

 

Any questions? Concerns? Ideas?  I'm here for you.

I agree. I also think that previous presidents should be eligible for re-election, provided that the terms are not consecutive.

Thank you for the support Kumis! Not to worry though as I will still be here to offer as much support as I can for the next President and anything else that needs to be done to make our community continue to thrive. As our community grows and matures, I am sure the Presidential term will be extended as well for future Presidents. We need to crawl before we walk :)
