    The following message was sent to the top ranked individuals.
    A copy is being sent to you - once again - for information,
    transparency, and curiosity purposes.
    I expect it might take some time before all the individuals get back
    to me on this so it may be some time before we actually know who
    will be on the AC.
    In solidarity, Jerry
    Dear xxxxxx:
    You are among the top xxxx ranked individuals in the 'pool'
    for the next Administrative Committee (AC). This was determined
    by a double-blind random ranking procedure. The term of office for
    the new AC will be two years.
    This is a great opportunity for you to take part in an
    exciting social experiment in direct democracy by
    Marxian scholars!
    The functions and activities of the AC will be determined by
    the new AC itself - in consultation with the list coordinator
    and, where necessary, with periodic reports to the list. The
    list coordinator will have voice but no vote (except in cases
    of a tie) in AC deliberations. The responsibilities of
    the AC will include:
    o a review and decision on recommendations made for new
    o a review of existing list policies - where the AC decides
    that policies are in need of review;
    o resolutions of complaints, suggestions, and grievances made
    by list members who are not part of the AC;
    o offering advice and direction to the list coordinator - either
    at the request of the coordinator or the initiative of the AC.
    Additionally, the AC may decide to expand its discussions to
    other matters, e.g. long-term planning of the list, new initiatives,
    etc. This is really up to the new AC.
    Decisions of the AC will be made by majority vote.
    This doesn't HAVE to be a big commitment. Putting aside
    special cases and emergencies, this SHOULDN'T require a
    lot of time and effort on the part of individual members of the
    AC. But, this depends in part on what the AC decides will be
    the scope of their activities.
    Of course, there are legitimate reasons for not serving on the AC
    (e.g. family, health, political activism, work and other professional
    commitments which make it impossible to serve), but I ask that
    you give this matter serious consideration and, if at all possible,
    agree to be on the AC.
    Comradely, Jerry
