Council of Guild Masters
The GoMe Council consists of a team of two Masters elected by all the Guild Members. The Guild Masters are considered at the same level, and they are free to organize their work among themselves, each keeping track of certain branches of the Guild.
Current Guild Masters:
The role of the Guild Master or Guild Mistress is to provide enthusiasm and direction for the Guild. The wise leader will listen to the members of the group, will keep abreast of developments within and without the guild to identify the best course for the group, and will work to mediate when disagreements arise (stay neutral whenever possible).
The most important concept behind the Guild Council is that they act only as coordinators and focal points for the Guild Members and the outsite community. All the final decisions are made by the whole Guild, discussing on the Guild Forums or during the montly Meetings, only decisions of little entity can be made by the Guild Council alone.
Guild Masters are responsible for keeping track of all the activities of the Guild, organizing the guild members when it is needed (deciding dates for the Guild Meetings, preparing the agenda for the meetings, ecc), to keep other members of the Guild aware of the work done
They also act as the "face" of the Guild to the public, representing the Guild in all the Public events or appointing other Messengers if they cannot be present.
Examples of Responsibility:
- If the Guild Master or Mistress cannot attend a Guild meeting or will be away for a time, he or she shall delegate responsibility to another member of the Guild.
- A Guild Master shall assist or delegate responsibilities for another member of the Guild when that member asks for assistance
- A Guild Master shall proactively seek out any type of information sought by members of the Guild.
The council will collectively determine when to hold Guild meetings. In general, any and all community members are welcome to join in Guild of Messengers meetings and contribute.
GoMe Recruiter - Personnel Manager
Another important figure in the Guild is the Personnel Manager.
The Personnel Manager is responsible for recruiting new members for the Guild when needed and follow them in their introduction process in the Guild Projects and Affairs. The philosophy of the Guild about new members is finding them with a job already in mind (Cavern Crier, Newspaper Team, ecc), this helps their introduction into the group and is a good way for not having a Guild full of inactive members.
The personnel manager must be someone with a good experience in the Guild, who knows what's going on and already knows the other Messengers. He works closely with the Guild Council, when this job is not filled by the Guild Council itself.
