Ansteorran Gazzette for February 2012


Letter from Star:

Greetings Unto the College!

As you may have read the BoD pended the draft version of the New Rules
for further work. Laurel is attempting to get a clearer definition of
what issues the BoD has with the revision. When that becomes
available, I'll share whatever information he releases to the public
with you all. For now, if you're working with a submitter and were
planning to submit under the New Rules, that will be on hold.

I want to thank those of you who came out to Round Table! There were
several new faces there whom I was very pleased to meet. If you were
not able to attend, please catch up with your regional herald and get
the details of what happened from them. There were many changes, most
notably locals are now utilizing the Online Reporting form that can be
found on the Herald's webpage under the reporting link. A new Admin
Handbook revision is due out soon, so please make sure to check that
out once I announce it.

Lastly, I want to talk about reporting and communication... Reporting
is a necessary evil to keep the whole machine that is the College
working properly. I have tried very hard to stay in contact with all
levels of the college, but especially with my direct deputies, whom I
expect in turn, to stay in contact with their direct deputies. It must
also work in reverse: You must stay in good contact with your up-line
officer, who must in turn stay in good contact with me. There has been
a kingdom-wide trend in reporting issues across all offices of late,
and the Great Officers and Crown are determined to try and work on
that. So if you're a monthly reporter, your up-line officer will
probably be dropping you a note reminding you that reports are due. If
you're reporting quarterly, you will likely receive the same reminder
from your up-line. Local reporting is not that great of an affair that
it becomes excusable to have constantly missing or late reporting. If
you're having trouble with the duties of your office, please contact
your regional and ask for help.

On the same vein, I intend to revive an old tradition, in that I will
be releasing a redacted version of my State of the College reports to
the College so that you can all be aware of how the Ansteorran
Heraldic Octopus is functioning. Being that we have so many offices,
it's sometimes hard to know what the other tentacle is doing! So
please look for that soon.

I am very proud of the work you all do, We did not have a single
outstanding report at Round Table, but I do know that we can still
improve a bit, and I'm certain that you all will amaze me once again!

In service,
