ARTICLE IV: Officers Section 1: Positions

The PNC shall be facilitated by the following officers:

  • The Captain or Chair, who shall manage all administration and operations of the PNC, act as the chairperson and primary spokesperson of the party, and facilitate PNC meetings.
  • The First Officer or Vice-Chair, who shall assist the Captain in managing the administration and operations of the PNC, and act as secondary spokesperson of the party. The First Officer will conduct business on behalf of the Captain or the Quartermaster in the event that either is absent or incapacitated.
  • The Quartermaster or Treasurer, who shall manage all accounts of funds and the recording and reporting those funds to members, governmental campaign finance agencies and the general public.
  • The Scribe or Secretary, who shall keep records of the minutes and logs for meetings, tally votes, and maintain a database of the members who compose the PNC as set forth in Art. III §1.
  • The Lookout or State Moderator, who shall ensure that disputes between states have an impartial party who will help produce a resolution. This person will also work with each state party to develop and enforce a Pirate Code of Conduct.
  • The Beancounter or Auditor, who shall ensure that national party funds, or such funds disbursed to state parties, were used appropriately.
  • The Swarmcare Manager, who shall welcome new activists and state parties into the swarm and continually measure the overall health of it. A typical task would be to call new activists just to make them feel welcome, and tell them when the next events — social as well as operational — take place.
  • The Webadmin or Director of the On-line, who shall coordinate volunteers to maintain the on-line infrastructure of the party, such as its websites, blogs and wikis.

The PNC shall elect assistants to all officers, except Captain and First Officer, as well as additional spokespeople, as are deemed necessary.

[9:15pm] OGPAF: I don't know if this is assumed, or not; but, I will throw my name in the hat to continue.

[9:33pm] Sayyida: It will happen this week, I will make sure of it
[9:34pm] Pirate_Joe: Lets make it offical
