"Apologies

Or words to that effect, heehee.

Congratulations to all AEC elected members and my best wishes for the tenure ahead...

Best wishes to the Neopoet *Family*....including those elected. Unfortunately, I did not see what they are elected for. No AEC Guidelines. Perhaps that's for their eyes only.

I bow out before I get booted.

Blessings to all. Life is hard, be kind to those you don't agree with and learn how to take criticism without making enemies or complaints when you get the shitty end of the stick.

"No AEC Guidelines."

You are mistaken.

"Life is hard, be kind to those you don't agree with and learn how to take criticism without making enemies or complaints when you get the shitty end of the stick."

So, you finally have come over to my position. Wonderful.

I think Anna was referring to the AEC guidelines not being posted publicly. I've seen them and I see no reason why they shouldn't be posted publicly. They are fair, reasonable and comprehensive.

Of course they will not satisfy everyone completely, that is impossible.

I guess it opens up the possibility of another shitfight about them but if they are endorsed by the voted representatives (the AEC) and the Trustees, then any suggested changes would need to be addressed by people standing for and voting in the next elections in 3 months. Any attempt to create a drama about them before that would be senseless.

Even though I was not successful in my attempt to get people not to vote for me.

This is not a cry for support or accolades or reassurance, it is a simple statement of fact.

And even though I have a strong will and I state my opinion without remorse, I don't believe myself a better person than anyone so I will never try to get folks to do anything "for their own good."

I state my stance, make my argument, cast my vote, and never throw a fit because I did not get my own way. This is a poetry workshop and my assumption is that I am always involved with mature adults. When that assumption is proven wrong, well, I deal as I can.

Stand tall, be proud to be who you are, give the world the finger!!!!

My total support and deepest sympathies to you all.

Now tell us. How do we contact the AEC directly? Is it aec13 [AT] neopoet.com?

I know you are going to have a very busy session but I have two suggestions.

1. Open a suggestion box.

2. Create a new Forum for informational/educational pieces about the art and craft of poetry and feedback.

cheers,
Jess

to all the new AEC. I think this will be a banner year for the site. I am so glad to see such an electic group on the commitee this term. This should be really good for making things happen. I see a change in the site already. The spirit of co-operation is present. Best of luck, to all. ~ Geezer

Comments and critique are vital to this site!
Even if you just say: I liked this story or your spelling
of a word is wrong, take the time to write a line or two
and comment. Your fellow poets will thank you!
.

One and all! I know you will do a great job with your new responsibilities. You have my full support.

Always, Cat

That may never come to pass as I can be very fuddled and addlepated the best of times.... sort of like the absent minded professor, lol. hanks for the congrats. But a voice I will attempt to be with all that I have, for right, justice, and a fair go.
