10) (motion forwarded)
(paragraph deleted) The purpose of this proposal is to request that the Adoxist Society consider revising the point penalty system related to reading fines as follows.
(paragraph deleted)At present, members lose or gain points based on proper presentation for meetings. Proper presentation being, attendance, assigned reading completed, door fee prepared to pay. In addition, the door fee has been increased from W1,000 to W1,500, and financial penalties will be foregone for reading assignments left unread, but points will be lost as a result.
(paragraph forwarded with first sentence deleted)I motion that this process be altered to the following. When a member has not completed the reading, or has elected not to read a prescribed selection on any given week, that member should be given the option to buy their potentially earned or lost point(s) for that week.
(paragraph deleted)I feel that this is a meaningful and valid proposition because points earned today may sway important and meaningful decisions that affect a members reading life in the future.
(paragraph deleted)Thankyou for considering this request for revision.
(paragraph deleted)Regards, Benjamin Schwartz (signed)(Memorandum Re: Motion to amend Adoxist society Point Loss/Gain PenaltiesProposed by: Benjamin Schwartz Date of Proposal: March 9, 2005)

11) (motion passed) that Chapter One is to hold a writing contest organised by Mr Smith and Miss Long, Prior to MWR Seeley's departure
