Board of Directors

The responsibilities of the board of Directors are to provide vision to the organization’s direction and future, and to address all legal, financial and corporate responsibilities. There are no assigned duties to the seats (Publications, Technology, etc); each seat holds the same responsibility as the other six seats. The Board is the primary supervisor for all of the National officers.

Very little of the job of a Director deals with coordination or storytelling, as that is left to the NC and NST. If you are interested in impacting the operations of the club, you should consider those roles or a regional office.

The Board of Directors is voted in by the general membership, and those seats each come up for vote every three years. The Board consists of seven elected members and two non-voting members appointed by the Board, representing financial and legal roles.

Michael Munene, Secretary

Michael Munene (pronounced Mo-neh-neh) stumbled into MES back in 2007, while on his way to play a DnD session, and got volunteered to be an NPC at a local convention game. This began his adventures in LARP, and he quickly got involved with the domain games in Bryan/College Station, TX. After a few months of attending the different games, he was invited by a friend to attend his first National Convention. Once that was done, the hook was really set, and he applied for every position he could, eventually serving in a number of positions from Regional and upwards. The rest, as they say, is history…
Outside of the organization, Michael keeps himself just as busy. With a career that spans across several industries, he’s used his education in Accounting to help to launch several startups, and now works as Controller and Project Manager while serving on Boards for various charities in his local community. These days within the Modern Enigma Society, he continues to serve however he can, while enjoying crafting stories with seasoned and new players. Hailing from Texas, Michael enjoys football and barbeque with the rest of them, spending time with friends, and going on adventures with his wife when not coming up with the next great recipe to eat at home.
