Proposal 5: Eliminate “Alternative” from one TS position
I propose to delete the word alternate from the list keeping job description. There are no “ alternates” in the true sense of this word or this work
The dates of term are enough.
It simply a housekeeping thing from the secretary viewpoint. When the terms change each 6 months the secretary won’t have to move one person into another position.
Summary of Comments on Proposal 5
Looks good to me.
I don’t agree with the proposal as submitted. The Listkeeper and Alternate Listkeeper are currently in a 2-year term; one as primary (Listkeeper) and one as Alternate. You mention a term change every 6 months, which doesn’t match the position description that is on our website.
Yes, you’re right. It’s 2 years.
Cheryl raises a good point. The duties of the two positions may be the same, but their terms of office are different. The “Alternate” becomes the Listkeeper after she serves her one-year term as alternate. I think we should make that clear by retaining the existing position title of “Listkeeper Alternate.
So does the proposal need to be rewritten?
So, looking at the responses made me re-think a bit.
If you remove the word “alternate”, how do you know who is the primary list keeper? Description states 1yr backup and 1yr primary. That would need to be changed also.
And, why would you need to move people from one position to another after 6months? Maybe that should have said 1yr?
Maybe the proposal needs to be re-written?
No objection to withdrawal of proposal 5.2, eliminate “alternate” from listkeeper.
