501st Legion Council Resolutions / Recasting / Sales

Post by TKvanB »

501st Legion's Stance on Recasting:

Council Resolution 1: Legion's Stance on Recasting (link)
Vote completed on 03/13/2006: 35 Yes; 10 No; 3 Abstain
Resolution: The 501st Legion does not condone, support, or encourage re-casting. It is, however, outside of the scope of this club's mission, charter, authority, jurisdiction, and purview to consume our time and energies as a volunteer organization in efforts to prosecute those who, of their own volition, choose to engage in re-casting.
501st Legion's Stance on Sales of Non-501st Legion Items:

Council Resolution 2: Legion's Stance on Sales of Non-501st Legion Items (link)
Vote completed on 05/23/06: 33 Yes; 1 No; 1 Abstain
Resolution: While the 501st Legion Charter includes specific restrictions over the approval, design and distribution of 501st merchandise, it does not address the private sales transactions of non-501st items between members. All Legion members are, therefore, urged to exercise due caution before engaging in private transactions with any individuals (even with other 501st members) of any item which is not officially coordinated through, or authorized by, the 501st Command Staff or the Merchandise and Branding Officer. "Due caution" includes taking the following precautions:

1) consult other members (including Garrison Command Staff) who have had prior transactions with the seller,
2) establish a clear written agreement with the seller detailing the quality of work, quantity, date and method of delivery,
3) if the seller does not have an impeccable track-record, negotiate a progressive payment plan,
4) clearly document any agreed upon conditions where partial or full refund would be honored,
5) don't send money to any individual of which you are not prepared to lose, and
6) when in doubt, walk away from the offer.
