I know this should likely stay in the Potters Council area, but I know a lot of you don't look in every category each time you visit and the nomination announcement only gives Members two days notice.
If you are a Potters Council Member, please consider running for a position on the Advisory Board. It is not as daunting as you think. It is also a great opportunity to influence upcoming benefits, directions and scope of the Council.
Three meetings a year are held by conference call, so you are at home for them and they last about 1 hour to 1 1/2 hours each.
One meeting is held in person in conjunction with NCECA and you are given a travel stipend to help with expenses. In the past we have also used a speaker phone to include any Member who could not attend in person for whatever reason.
You are given assignments and are asked to head up a committee ... the demands are reasonable and not extremely time consuming. You will also be asked for ideas for future Potters Council projects and benefits.
I urge you all to consider it for yourselves or think of someone who would be a good fit and ask them to run ... heck, NAG them to run.
