You have two applicants for the Domain Coordinator Position:
  • Renee Babin

This Q&A phase will last for one week, until Friday, November 2nd.  I might extend this period if there’s a particularly lively conversation going on.
Please let me know if I can provide any more information!

Renee Babin
*My goals during my time of election are to establish better communication between the DC position and all players I want to make sure everyone is comfortable coming to me with their problems. I also want try to reserve game space months in advance to games as needed and have back ups planned in case things go pear shaped.
Plan of action:
*I plan to constantly remind people they can come to me no matter what I am doing even if it’s in the middle of a game. I’ve been researching sign language and have found a simple sign that people can make when they want/ need to talk to me when I am am physically present.
*For reserving game spaces I am going to make a schedule so I know when which games are on which days so that I can reserve space at least two or three months ahead of time and back ups at the ready.
I used to Arst elections but had to give it up because I was in school at the time but now that I’ve graduated I have more free time.
The only outside experience I have is scheduling clients at my work place and settling disputes between friends.
I am currently a paid up member and I have not taken any of the standards yet but I will complete them either prior to or upon my election into the position
I do not have any disciplinary actions
Charmain Hopkins
Objective: My plan is to ensure that DMH remains a strong motivating force within the Southwest, for both new and established members. Demonstrative investment by membership in our local venues as well as our annual Featured Game will help set the stage for hosting MESCON 2019 in Scottsdale, AZ.
Plan of Action: I do not believe that this Domain can run on its own, nor can be managed by a single person exclusively. We have skilled and invested members, as well as new members who are eager to assist. Education, learning, and opportunity are key terms that I fully support. Delegation is a thing. I believe in the right tools/people for the right jobs, and will be more than happy to invest in the roles of ADCs to ensure that everything is handled smoothly. What is the adage : a rising tide lifts all boats?
