      It is election time!

      Please read the position requirements and the election timeline for further information. If you think you’ve got what it takes to be in an elected position, let us know!

      Requirements to run for leader/officer

      For leader, you need to have been in the Eagles for at least five months and have had experience as an officer in the Eagles within the last year.

      For officer roles, you need to have been in the Eagles for at least three months.
      And for both types of positions, you need to have energy and enthusiasm!

      We do have a bunch of rules about behavior, time commitments, and responsibilities. They’ll be explained in a forum post within the next week. Please read them if you intend to run for any of the roles.

      The schedule for elections is as follows (subject to alteration, but more or less):

      Within the next week – Email/Forum Post outlining the roles up for election and the duties assigned to each.
      January 13th-19th – Nomination Period Open. Nominate yourself or someone else!
      January 21st – January 30th – Polls are open.
      February 2nd – Inauguration Party at the Kinhouse

      Campaigning via the forums can start on January 13th and continue throughout the voting period.

      To see if you’re eligible to run for an open position, please ask Guivien or an officer. If you are nominated by someone else, you may decline that nomination.

      The schedule milestones will be added to the calendar. And we will keep you updated via the forum at each stage.

      If you have any questions, please contact officers@eaglesofthorondor.com or one of the officers in-game.

      The Leader and all Officers are expected to abide by, respect, and embody the code of conduct as a bare minimum. Beyond that, they are expected to represent the kin well, responsibly, and respectfully at all times because they are the public face of the kinship.

      Leader (1 position available)

      Per Turbine’s rules, a kin leader is the sole person with the power to promote/demote members to officers, and to disband the kinship (No, never!). Leadership of the Eagles includes all the responsibilities of Council Officers, plus:
      ⦁ Expected to play 10 hours per week (on average) on kin toons
      ⦁ Must have been an Officer of the Eagles in the last year
      ⦁ Works to create and/or maintain an alliance/strategic partnerships with other kinships.

      ⦁ Take charge of leading and encouraging discussions regarding proposals for the kinship as needed and may perform or assign other duties as well, including leading organization for the next election.

      Council Officers (3 positions available)

      Council officers have all the duties of regular officers, plus the requirement to discuss any issues that arise and help maintain the health of the kinship. The additional duties include:

      *Expected to play 7 hours per week (on average) on kin toons

      *Help maintain the Kinship House Chest (sort donations, sell overflow etc.)
      ⦁ Provide a point of contact for kinnies/officers wishing to run events; keep the event calendar updated and let people know if there is a conflict with proposed dates
      ⦁ Announce upcoming events
      ⦁ Update MOTD with upcoming event + freebie
      ⦁ Manage the recruits/alts/promos tracker (Google Sheets), and promote kinnies and alts when appropriate
      ⦁ Run, lead, or assist with leading at least one event per week, such as a social gathering, deed run, instance, or any other fun group activity for kin members
      ⦁ Run a scheduled event once a month (choose event and add to calendar in advance)
      ⦁ Help recruit new players to the kinship

      *Must maintain an officer gmail account and check it and is expected to reply to messages within a week, barring emergencies.

      Officers (6 positions available)

      ⦁ Expected to play 6 hours per week (on average) on kin toons

      ⦁ Help out kinnies in the game as you can, such as answering questions, helping on a quest, and so on
      ⦁ Lead or assist with leading at least one event per month, such as a social gathering, deed run, instance, or any other fun group activity for kin members
      ⦁ Participate in group activities regularly
      ⦁ Recruit players who request to join
      ⦁ Know the Eagles Code of Conduct and coach other players as needed

      As an international kinship, our goal is to have at least one officer in each time zone. However, we know that depends on who decides to run. If you are active and from a non-Western Hemisphere time zone, please consider running.
