Elections: National Storyteller & Member Advocate – Application Period Opens Today

Over the past few weeks, we have heard from our membership regarding what they would like to see from the NST office going forward. The Board of Directors is in the process of reviewing that feedback in order to update the duties and responsibilities of the National Storyteller. While those changes are still being finalized, here are some items of note (in case that may influence anyone’s decision to apply for the role):

Plot Kits/Metaplot: In order to support our Chapter level storytellers and build cohesive story elements across our chapters, members wanted to see the National ST team create plot kits that can be run in the local games.

Event Games: We also received feedback that Chapters are interested in event game support. This includes help with plot hooks that can be used in other Chapters as lead-ins to the special event.

World-Building:  Based on feedback, the National Storyteller will be responsible for the development of a living document that details the history of our chronicle. Information about publicly known events will be available to the general membership, while more “behind the scenes” information will be made available to the storytelling staff. In addition, the NST team will be responsible for tracking and overseeing Cannon and National-level created NPC’s.

Today begins the application period for our National Storyteller (NST) position. Interested candidates can email directors@hiddenparlor.com with the following:

  • Name + preferred email address
  • Home Chapter
  • Relevant experience (related to storytelling on a multi-chronicle level)
  • Goals

If you are interested in running for the National Storyteller role, please submit your application by end of day on April 7th.

 

The goal of the Member Advocates (MA’s) is to provide our community with individuals outside of the officer structure who can advocate for their needs. Member Advocates serve as a neutral third party for gathering feedback and providing mediation that doesn’t explicitly in the scope of disciplinary investigation.  A more detailed description of the Member Advocate role and responsibilities can be found in our membership handbook. Our current Membership Advocacy Team is listed on our website as well.

Application period for 2 Member Advocates opens today!

Member Advocates serve for 18-month terms. Since we have 3 MA’s, we space out their elections every 6 months (April and October). One seat is open for possible re-election, and another has opened up because Casey Corbin (a former Member Advocate) was elected to the Board of Directors.

Interested candidates can email directors@hiddenparlor.com with the following:

  • Name + preferred email address
  • Home Chapter
  • Relevant experience (related to community management and mediation)
  • Goals

If you are interested in running for the National Storyteller role, please submit your application by end of day on April 7th.
