While we try to keep PortLUG as casual and unstructured as we can, we do have officers to keep PortLUG operating, efficient, and organized. Even so, PortLUG is lead by our members - no one individual is in charge! The officers keep the group organized, but the members are the driving force of PortLUG. We are able to pull off all of the amazing events that we do thanks to our active and engaged group of AFOLs.
The Ambassador is the single point of contact between The LEGO Group and PortLUG. He is responsible for ensuring all formal requirements related to annual reporting, support, etc. are met, and actively participates in both PortLUG and the Lego Ambassador Network.
The Secretary is responsible for taking notes at the meetings, including a list of attendees. She is also responsible for sending out a summary (or "meeting minutes") after each meeting.
The Chairperson is responsible for running the meeting according to the agenda, which is created by the Chairperson (in conjunction with other officers and members) ahead of the meeting. He or she ensures that the meetings are productive and enjoyable!
The treasurer is responsible for managing the finances of PortLUG. She will put out an annual report to update members on the balance and expenditures of the LUG.
*Note on funding: We do not collect membership dues, but we generate a small amount of money through raffles to fund operational expenses such as creating banners for events, and hosting for our website.
Minister of information
The "Minister of Information" is our media and communications officer, who is responsible for maintaining the social media platforms of PortLUG. She ensures that the website, Facebook page, and Instagram account have relevant and updated information for our members and community.
