Surface and Orbit Authority

Founding SOA and electing its first Chair

I join the Surface and Orbit Authority as its founding member.

As the office of Chair is vacant, I initiate an election for that office. I announce my candidacy. As Chair, I intend to formally designate this category as a public forum, for conducting SOA business; in the interim, I would appreciate it if all business conducted between members was copied into this forum for the record.

If no other candidates step forwards, I will appoint myself Chair in seven days. Otherwise, I’m happy to conduct the election in lieu of the absent Chair.

As the only standing candidate when nominations closed, I appoint myself to the office of Chair. We’re up and running.

I designate the Discourse instance at as a public forum.
