@JohnPackel, thank you for the kind words and, more importantly, for your immense dedication to the Marketing Guild Committee. John has been an irreplaceable leader, mentor, and contributor to the MGC, even before any of it was formalized. John helped me to organize an early contributor campaign and made himself available as an advisor. In November of 2021, John helped me kick-start the MG and helped drive early community growth and participation. Through John’s early support, and the Keep Network providing early funding for the guild contributors, we found valuable talent hiding within our community, and this helped establish our very talented first-term committee. I would like to second Liz’s nomination of John for a second term on the committee. I’m not sure we’ll ever deliver another edition of Threshold Time without him. His commitment and cat herding skills are impressive!
The participation of team members in the MGC has been extremely helpful in better aligning our DAO. @Carusosa and Liz bestowed valuable insights into team activities, were helpful with copywriting, made collaboration with the team a smooth process, and provided their time and talent to help lay the foundation of the MG. I would like to encourage Ryan’s continued participation and am happy to see @Hagan has accepted his nomination. I hope to see that both be elected. @Liz_S, thank you for everything, and I look forward to your continued participation with the MG.
I would also like to express my support for @ZeroInFo56, who handles many of the administrative tasks, contributes to the Threshold Time, operates the MG’s node, leads the Threshold Embassy (whose primary focus is currently on PRE adoption), and much more. From a Reddit moderator to a wrangler of partnerships and adoption, I’m here for it!
I would like to express my support and appreciation for @Nous, as his skillset and background have served the MG very well. Nous’ educational videos, rules committee participation, collaborative writing skills, and familiarity with parliamentary procedure are invaluable.
@Jessi has been a warm, welcoming, and positive face for the community. She is actively contributing to the Threshold Time, design tasks, amplification of community messages on social media and is great at picking up the odds and ends. I would like her to be elected again and hope that we can find a way to put her undeniable artistic talent to better use.
@nico186 has been an active participant in the community since before I arrived and was one of the first people to make me feel welcome and valued within the community. I believe his kind and friendly demeanor really illuminates to the community and world who we are as an organization. Nico was a candidate for an inaugural seat on the initial committee but opted out in favor of others since he had limited time available to contribute. With Nico now having the time available to contribute, I am a strong proponent and hope to see him leading live interactive and educational lessons for the DAO. I’ve heard he is friendly, calm, passionate and has teaching experience.
I would also like to encourage anyone who might be lurking in the MG to come forward and self-nominate. We are always eager to see new faces!
Lastly, I would like to accept John and Liz’s very flattering nominations and run for a seat on the Marketing Guild Committee. I want to take this opportunity to brag about everything I have achieved with yall’s help, but to save you the rest of your day, I’ll end with my commitment to the DAO instead. I will continue to serve as a voice for the community, advocate for Threshold in every way possible, and do my best to always be available to anyone who ever needs a private chat. I will raise questions, advocate, organize, rally, explore, engage, and communicate with the Threshold community and beyond!
