21:02 < wikirev> I'm interested in starting a state party in Alabama. Emailed the national chair for info a couple of days ago but haven't heard back yet. Just thought I'd pop in here and have a look. 21:02 < srevilak> hi wikirev 21:02 < wikirev> hi 21:02 < jokeefe> hmmm… will ask him to get back to you 21:03 < jokeefe> hi srevilak 21:03 < wikirev> I appreciate it! 21:04 < srevilak> wikirev: at the risk of jumping into the middle of a conversation, I'd check with your secretary of state's office, re: what it takes to start a PAC, a political party and/or a political designation 21:04 < srevilak> Then go ahead and get started on it 21:04 * srevilak isn't well acquainted with particulars of AL 21:05 < wikirev> Cool- that's exactly what I needed to know. Thanks! Can you offer a source of info for the Pirate Party's specific guidelines- bylaws or something like that? 21:06 < jokeefe> I would keep it as loose as you can, but democratic 21:06 < srevilak> If it would help to see ours, https://masspirates.org/wiki/Main_Page 21:06 < papegaai> Title: Mass Pirate Wiki (at masspirates.org) 21:06 < srevilak> look under the "members" section 21:06 < jokeefe> we just copied the Swedish Pirate Party’s docs - https://masspirates.org/wiki/Articles_of_Agreement 21:06 < papegaai> Title: Articles of Agreement - Mass Pirate Wiki (at masspirates.org) 21:07 < wikirev> Thanks to all! That will get me started for sure 21:07 < jokeefe> Got the code of conduct from 200 year old pirate codes of conduct with mods of course - https://masspirates.org/wiki/Code_of_Conduct 21:07 < papegaai> Title: Code of Conduct - Mass Pirate Wiki (at masspirates.org) 21:08 < jokeefe> agenda - https://masspirates.org/wiki/September_20th,_2016_IRC_Meeting 21:08 < papegaai> Title: September 20th, 2016 IRC Meeting - Mass Pirate Wiki (at masspirates.org) 21:08 < jokeefe> ids 21:08 < jokeefe> James O’Keefe, Somerville 21:08 < jokeefe> agenda - https://masspirates.org/wiki/September_20th,_2016_IRC_Meeting 21:08 < papegaai> Title: September 20th, 2016 IRC Meeting - Mass Pirate Wiki (at masspirates.org) 21:09 < srevilak> Steve Revilak, Arlington 21:09 < jokeefe> Review - Freedom Rally 21:09 < srevilak> 15 newsletter signups from Saturday (which I'll enter into civi) 21:10 < jokeefe> It seemed to go well.

Even if question 4 passes, it'll take a while before we get around to developing CMRs 21:11 < srevilak> (though, i should re-read the text of the flyer) 21:12 < jokeefe> True, but it does no good holding on to it considering the election is my thought 21:13 < jokeefe> now it is relevant 21:13 < jokeefe> I had to leave early, so I will check on the signups.
