    Default VOTING: League Governance Structure

    All Owners are required to vote.

    Discussion can be found here.

    Voting closes at noon on Friday, November 17th, 2006.

    Article III of the FOFL Constitution currently reads as follows:

    Quote Originally Posted by The Constitution
    III. GOVERNANCE

    A. The FOFL will be governed by a three-person Board of Governors, which consists of the Commissioner and the President of each conference. The Board of Governors has the final authority to enforce all provisions of the constitution. In the case that provisions of this Constitution are ambiguous or contradictory, the Board of Governors has the final authority to make reasonable interpretations.

    1. Commissioner

    a. The Commissioner has ultimate authority for the day-to-day operation of the league and may take, subject to the review of the conference presidents, actions in the best interests of the league, to the extent that such actions are not expressly precluded elsewhere in the constitution.

    b. The FOFL Commissioner is elected by a vote of the majority owners of the league, and may be removed by the vote, set forth in post(s) on the league forum, of 21 members.

    2. Conference Presidents

    a. Conference Presidents are elected by a simple majority of owners of the Conference which they will represent to a 4 season term. The terms shall be staggered so that one Conference President is up for election every 2 FOFL seasons. Terms shall end upon the processing of Training Camp after the appropriate season.

    b. A conference president may be removed by the vote of 11 owners from the Conference he represents. The procedure for the removal vote will be the same as the procedure for removal of a commissioner.

    c. If a Conference President cannot finish his term, his elected successor will serve only through the end of his predecessor's term.
    The purpose of this amendment is to simplify the league governance structure, allowing those who occupy the two President positions of the BoG to come from either conference, rather than requiring one President from each conference at all times. The proposed change reads as follows:

    c. If a President cannot finish his term, his elected successor will serve only through the end of his predecessor's term.
    If passed, this shall take effect immediately upon passage.

    Yes...but from a terminology point of view, shouldn't 'Presidents' really be referred to as 'Representatives' in the new plan?

You're probably not gonna get hit by a bus. And you're gonna have to live with the choices you make for the next fifty years."

    The whole world is a circus if you look at it the right way. Every time you pick up a handful of dust, and see not the dust, but a mystery, a marvel, there in your hand, every time you stop and think, "I'm alive, and being alive is fantastic!" Every time such a thing happens, you are part of the Circus of Dr. Lao.
