Administrators in the Org
OWbN is administered primarily through a series of Coordinators and Council Members drawn from the various chronicles.
Each Chronicle has a voice on the Council through their Council Member, who is selected by the players and STs in that chronicle. The Council Member is responsible for representing their chronicle's interests in OWBN, and for keeping the Council appraised of any situations that may arise of regional or international significance, as well as voting on any matters that may arise in Council, such as the admission of new chronicles to OWBN.
Council Members are also primary contact points (alongside the STs) for other chronicles wanting information or updates on current plots in their local chronicles. In a majority of cases, Council Members are also StoryTellers (although this is not always the case) and can give immediate answers. Otherwise they direct the query to the appropriate person or ask them on the Council's behalf.
Additionally, a set of Coordinators is elected every February/March to hold positions of specific responsibility in OWbN.
The Head Coordinator (HC) oversees the entire operation of OWBN, and is assisted in the task by an Assistant HC. Alongside these two, an Admissions Coordinator tracks new applications for OWbN and keeps tally of the membership. These three people form the core of OWbN's administrative team for out-of-character issues.
The HC is primarily responsible for overseeing the progress of OWBN as an organization, for dealing with matters arising in regard to the OWBN Charter, and for maintaining some sort of order in amongst the chaos. The HC also assesses disciplinary situations that may require OWbN's attention, and dispenses advice to chronicles as requested. He or she is also responsible for supervising the other Coordinators as a group.
The Assistant Head Coordinator is responsible for maintaining the sanity of the Head Coordinator by dealing with the administrative minutiae of OWbN, such as voting procedures.
The Admissions Coordinator will receive and assess the initial admissions applications to assist new and existing chronicles in their applications for One World by Night. Initial questions about joining the org are best sent to the Admissions Coord.
As OWBN has grown, the need for specific Clan Coordinators has developed. At present OWBN has Coordinators for the majority of clans represented with in the Camarilla. Additionally, we have a Coordinator for Sabbat activities, and another for the Garou players. As OWBN continues to grow, and other styles of Chronicle join in, the structure of OWBN will adjust appropriately.
