I like the idea I wish they would have done this for the HMGS election where the people running actually had something to say and not a private board ect. ect.

POLL DESCRIPTION

Which candidate do you support for president of the Society of Ancients?

Nick Harbud

Nick Harbud's Electoral Address:

"Since 2002, Society membership has fallen by nearly 25%. Ancient wargamers are either disenchanted with the hobby as a whole or dissatisfied with the way in which the Society promotes it.

"Whether you blame currently available wargames rules, the internet or the pressures of modern life, the way in which the Society has proceeded for the past ten years will not serve it for the next ten years to successfully promote interest in ancient military history.

"I believe it is time to review what the Society does for its members and update the way it delivers it, in short, to bring the Society into the 21st century."

Phil Steele

Phil Steele's Electoral Address:

"This is an election for your figurehead - whatever your choice, I urge you to vote. It strengthens our Society if a greater number of us are involved. It reassures our committee that we care.

"After nearly doubling during the 1990s, since Phil was replaced as President our numbers have fallen by over a fifth. The Committee are to be commended on having stemmed this slide. The task now is to consolidate and build. We have a Society to be proud of - we need to spread the word more widely. We need a visible, active, and well-known personality carrying the flag.

"We need good co-ordination inside and outside the Committee, as the Society evolves to meet the 21st century. We need to maximise the value of the effort and ideas the Committee and our members put in. Phil has the qualities and experience to make the difference.

"Take this opportunity. Elect Phil Steele as the new Society President."
