Partial Draft LoH Constitution - 1st draft

Post  Gloin Fireforge on Wed Apr 30, 2008 8:22 pm

Fellow Lords:

I believe we should have some framework for the establishment of our Alliance and to facilitate any future changes in an organized fashion. So for discussion purposes only, I attach the beginings (only some of what we should have in place) of a constitution. It is only the first draft of a partially complete document, so the reason for posting is to get your feedback and ideas so that we can build on this document and eventually come up with a finished draft.

Gloin Fireforge, Leader
Lords of Honor

Lords of Honor Constitution
