Chieftess/High Priestess Guidelines
1. Chieftess/High Priestess is responsible for the overall structure of her clan/temple and should set up her own guidelines for it's members.
2. She should create a page for clan business (or have someone else create the page if necessary) that outlines the various societies and gives an explanation of what her clan/temple is responsible for.
3. She is ultimately responsible for all activities and projects within her clan's societies.
4. She should keep track of her clan's societies and members at all times.
5. The Chieftess (or her 2nd in command) is expected to submit a brief report to the group once a month or so outlining her clan's recent activities.
6. She should set up an email account for her clan at egroups, or another place (this isn't a requirement, but it is a way to keep clan business organized and make it easier for clan members to contact their chieftess/high priestess).
1. Members need to be willing to participate and help their clan or temple be the best it can be.
2. If a member volunteers for something, she should be certain that she'll be able to follow through and complete her task. There should always be someone designated to step in and carry on if for some reason the first cannot complete her duties.
3. Priestesses are those that volunteered to oversee a particular society. Don't do this unless you're certain that you'll be able to follow through. Your high priestess or chieftess cannot be responsible for everything, it is your responsibility to help her as much as possible. Make suggestions, show initiative, get active...
4. All clan/temple members should have some specific task to do, if you're not doing anything suggest something!! Read the clan's/temple's/society's description and create your own job if needed, don't feel you need to wait until you're called upon to participate.
5. Priestesses and members are expected to communicate with their high priestess or chieftess on a regular basis, just to keep her up to date on whatever may be happening within the societies in order that she can keep the group informed of her clan's activities and projects.
6. Ultimately the success of a clan/temple rests upon it's members, the chieftess should not be expected to shoulder the entire load.
7. Ideally new members should wait until their 30 day "evaluation period" is up before joining a clan. This way it gives everyone a chance to get to know them and gives the new member a chance to acclimate with the group before committing themselves to something they may not have the time or energy for.
Keep in mind that these are simply guidelines, nothing is written in stone! If you have any questions at all either post them to the main group list or write to the chieftess/high priestess of the clan you are interested in.
