Even though I have only been a member 1 year, and therefore not qualified, I am curious as to what the duties of a " Director-at-Large" are.

To be a fence mender and bridge builder by helping members find the answers they ask about and generally be helpful. You also get to serve on committees As a Chairperson, Member or Liaison to the board for that particular committee.

You also get to attend the general board meetings on the second wens skype calls, attend the once a year face to face meeting and get to be the "New Guy" on the board while they find something for you to do..

Large non profit charitable Inc. with an all volunteer Board and officers doing the work. Currently a bit more than 1735 members in good standing including Mrs. Claus, Santa aas full members and a range of associate members as well.

May your season be Joyous!

Just a note on the elections of board members of IBRBS.

The date to send in your election packet signifying your intent to run for one of the 4 positions open is closing on November 15. Your letter of intent and full packet must be post marked by that date if sent by snail mail and if done electronically must be in by that date.

You will also need to write a letter telling the membership of your qualification, what you bring to the table and any experience you feel qualifies you to run. This letter is posted before the elections for the membership to see what the "Names" they can choose from actually have to offer.

If you have an interest in running for the board, now is the time to get started. There are four seats up for this coming election.

This is a seat on the board of the largest non-profit, member driven, Social Organization that deals with Christmas performers and it is growing every day.  Being an inclusive social group, Both Women and Men are eligible to run so long as they have the needed qualifications. Both Women and Men can also volunteer to be members of various committees as merely working on them or Chairing the committee. We also Regional and District Rep positions Members that do not have the interest or qualifications to be a Board Member that they can contribute their time and energies toward helping the members and helping the organization grow. We just certified our 39th chapter and have 2 more in the process of being formed! All that takes is 5 members in good standing to sign up and start one.

This is a dynamic and growing Social Group that is currently working on new benefits for the members both full and associate.

Thank you for your consideration to this.

May your season be Joyous!

Yours,

Santa Gordon Bailey

    • How do You Portray Santa?
      Portraying Santa is acting; it is a characterization of a mythical character.

      Most of us never think of ourselves as actors, but we are. Certain characteristics of Santa Claus have been handed down from one generation to another. The way we dress and conduct ourselves all follow an established pattern.

      Santa Claus is one of the most recognizable characters throughout the world. This came about from the advertising campaign of the Coke Cola Company and the creative painting genius, of Haddon Sundblom. Coke Cola was looking to increase winter sales of its soft drink and hired Sundblom to produce illustrations for prominent magazines. These illustrations appeared during the holiday season from the late 1930s into the early 1970s and set the standard for how Santa should look.

      This characterization of Santa with rosy cheeks, a white beard, handlebar mustache plus a red costume trimmed in white fur is the image most everyone has in their minds. Unconsciously people are going to judge you against that image. If your beard isn’t white or you have a soiled suit it will register with the onlooker.

      By the way, the majority of Sundblom's paintings depict Santa with a Brown Belt and Brown Boots. Not until his later illustrations did he change the color to Black for these items. Within the past few years many costume companies have offered the Coke Cola Suit and it has become very popular. You can tell it by the large buttons and absence of fur down the front of the jacket.

      No matter how you portray Santa, be it home visits, schools, churches, parades, corporate events, malls, hospitals we all make an entrance and an impression! The initial impression we make determines if our client will ask us to return.

      The 5 Second Rule

      I have a theory: When you enter the presence of your audience you have about 5 seconds to make people believe you are the real Santa.

    • If You Have the Post Christmas Blues You’re Doing Christmas Wrong
      The post-Christmas blues are a very real thing. Once the date of December 25th has passed the specter of December 26th is an ominous marker to many. It sits there on the calendar like the Ghost of Christmas Yet-to-Come. Silent and foreboding, the very image of the hooded Angel of Death it seems to be. And why not?

      Just about anywhere you look Americans are tossing trees to the curb, ripping down lights from rooftops and radio stations are flipping back to everyday music. What took months to build gets deconstructed in a matter of a couple of days.

    • Not Everyone Can Be Santa!
      Yes, I said it and it is not meant to hurt anyone’s feelings. I do view many Facebook sites along with websites and posted photos. Frankly, many of these postings should have never been put on public display.

    • Auld Lang Syne
      Every New Year’s Eve at the stroke of midnight, millions around the world traditionally gather together to sing the same song, “Auld Lang Syne”. As revilers mumble though the song’s versus, it often brings many of them to tears – regardless of the fact that most don’t know or even understand the lyrics. Confusion over the song’s lyrics is almost as much of a tradition as the song itself. Of course that rarely stops anyone from joining in.

    • Merry Christmas, My Friend
      Every year around this time, some variation of this poem is circulated online. The poem is generally credited to “a soldier stationed in Okinawa” or more recently since September 11, 2001, “a Marine stationed in Afghanistan”.

      However, the poem’s true author is Lance Corporal James M. Schmidt.

      Originally entitled, “Merry Christmas, My Friend”, Corporal Schmidt wrote the poem in 1986 while serving as Battalion Counter Sniper at the Marine Barracks 8th & I, in Washington, D.C.

      That day the poem was placed in the Marine Corps Gazette and distributed worldwide. Schmidt’s poem was later published in Leatherneck (Magazine of the Marines) in December 1991.
