Compensated Managers

Compensated manager positions are required by the BSC to be filled, and are compensated by having a certain percentage of their rent paid. They also tend to require more work than uncompensated positions. These positions include House Manager, House President, Workshift Manager, Maintenance Managers, Community Manager(s), Board Representatives, and Food and Kitchen Managers. If you’re interested in running for a compensated manager position but would like more information, any of these managers would be happy to talk to you! See each manager’s page for contact methods and further information about each position.

  • Conflict resolution
  • Emergency plans – fire safety, etc.
  • Welcome week stuff and move-ins and room bids
  • Move-outs

  • You have any questions or concerns about Cloyne (or other stuff) – what to do in different situations, how something works, etc.
  • You’re locked out or need something unlocked
  • You’re having a problem with something or someone in the house – ex. Roommate disagreements, quiet hours violations, concerns about guests, other conflicts

  • You have anything you want to talk about :)

HOW TO CONTACT ME:

House Presidents

WHAT WE DO:

We facilitate Cloyne Council, Manager Meetings, and internal and external disputes.  We also carry lockout keys, act as quick reference points for Cloyne and BSC Bylaws and House Policy, and run manager elections and Votes of Confidence (VOCs).  We are responsible for checking up on all managers and ensuring that they perform the duties prescribed in the Cloyne and BSC Bylaws.  We have a few other minor responsibilities, but they generally tie in with the responsibilities above.  Most importantly, though, we are here to be at your service in an effort to help create an awesome community we can all call home.

COME TO US IF:

  • You have policy questions (House- or BSC-level).
  • You have feedback, suggestions, or ideas about how to generally improve our house (in any respect), but are unsure how to go about doing it.
  • You want to discuss personal matters or need someone to facilitate conflict resolution.
  • You are locked out.

HOW TO CONTACT US:

Kitchen Managers

COME TO US IF:

  • You have a kitchen workshift (IKC, kitchen clean, etc.) and want some pointers
  • You have a question or suggestion about kitchen sanitation, organization and/or safety

HOW TO CONTACT US:

We’re available at clokm1@bsc.coop

Maintenance Managers

IMPORTANT INFO:

Waste Reduction Managers (WRMs)

WHAT WE DO:

We WRMs are in charge of making sure the house gets its shit together…literally. We are responsible for informing the house of our elaborate wasting system and making it accessible.

  • You have questions about the free pile or the E-Waste closet in the basement
  • You need tips to help reduce your environmental impact
  • You have an awesome waste reduction idea you want to share

HOW TO CONTACT US:

  • You can’t do your workshift because of injury, illness, or vacation (at least 3 days in advance unless medical emergency)
  • You find that a workshift is not being done properly or that a problem in the house needs workshift to be solved
  • Your workshift took much longer (maybe someone previous skipped their shift or maybe it was just a huge mess) than the hours you are credited
  • You have any suggestions or requests regarding workshift

HOW TO CONTACT US:

  • Email clowm@bsc.coop
    • Reply if there’s no response in 2 days
    • Reply if there’s no resolution in a week
    • With cooperativity in mind, use your common sense to hand

    • If it’s an emailable issue, start there. Almost always, we’ll need our computers to change something on the workshift website.
    • If it’s an emergency, definitely bother us!
