Announcement of Planning Committee New Voting Process
Playa del Fuego 2020 may have been cancelled but the Planning Committee (aka “the PC”) has been busy! Recently, we voted to update the Proposal Voting Process - and yes - that means we voted on how to vote!
As PDF is uniquely community driven, it was imperative that the new Voting Process include a way for the Community voice to be heard.
Voting Process Details:
Why Was The Process Changed? The prior process did not provide flexibility for all department leads to participate. The new process allows for absentee voting for department leads and targets those impacted by the proposal's change.
Who Can Vote? Current department coordinators and leads (primary, assistant, and co-), two board members, and one community vote. The single community vote is determined by a simple majority of the public vote.
What Items Go For Vote? Proposals are for items large scale items that impact all departments.
Where Do I Vote? The community will vote using a google form available on this website, department leads and board members may vote during the live vote on the designated PC call or cast an absentee vote by email.
When Do I Vote? After the proposal is discussed, finalized, and determined to be ready for vote in a PC call, the community will be notified shortly thereafter and the voting period will stay open until 4 hours before the next scheduled PC call, which will call for the vote
How Will I Be Notified Of The Vote? Through the Burning Poney Express newsletter ("BPE") and on the website http://playadelfuego.org The item will also be announced on the PDF Facebook group https://www.facebook.com/groups/playadelfuego as a post of the newsletter announcing the vote.
