[time-restrict on=”3/23/2020 12:01 AM” off=”3/23/2020 11:59 PM”]Question submitted by Gotham Board Member and Past-Commissioner, Seth Eichenholtz:
Question: The Gotham Board meets every other year (or so) to brainstorm ideas and create a strategic plan for Gotham. Which of the following major parts of today’s Gotham did NOT come from this planning process:
A) Gotham’s Mission Statement (“To improve the quality of life for LGBTQ Individuals by building community through the sport of volleyball.”)
B) The PowerPlay Program
C) The “Skills Based” tryout
D) Registering through the Gotham website

Answer: “B” The PowerPlay program was an idea that came from Power Director Leah Hughey. The Mission Statement was developed during the 2007 planning retreat. The Skills Based tryout was developed during the 2011 retreat as proposed by then Power At-Large Representative Robert Fennell. Choice “D” is trickier — but the idea for increased engagement through the website also came out of the 2007 retreat. The actual registration system came out of work between me (Seth), as then-Gotham secretary, and some Gotham web designer members who provided suggestions of how it could work.[/time-restrict]
