[PROPOSAL to House of Merit] NDC SMM January + February Proposal

gm. We extend our gratitude to everyone in the community who has supported us throughout our journey - whether through collaborative efforts on our threads or amplifying our posts, your support has been invaluable to us. We also extend our deepest appreciation to the HoM members who stood by us and supported us.

Today, we’re bringing you our last proposal. It’s a bittersweet moment that marks the end of our(@kv9990 AND @rahulgoel007) journey with NDC SMM. After much consideration and reflection, we have made the difficult decision to discontinue our operations effective March. This decision comes in light of feedback from a few NDC HoM Members, who consistently challenged our proposals and attempted to subject us to different standards of remuneration compared to other NDC HoM Members.

One of NDC’s core values is fairness to all contributors. We firmly believe that there should be uniform standards for remuneration across all members, including HoM and SMM teams. We have observed disparities in remuneration between our team and roles such as the HoM Meeting Scheduler and Coordinator, who, despite similar responsibilities, receive higher compensation, including a base payout of $1500 for voting.

Let’s end this on a positive note. We’re seeking our remuneration for the work done in January and February with this proposal. Our January proposal had a majority approval (7/13) from HoM but failed to gain the approval threshold and proceed further.

Hello, I would like to advise SMM team, that read the first congress member’s report work and letter back to write any statement on the forum!

Thanks for your feedback. My intention with the “statement” wasn’t to challenge Congress’s payout. Rather, it’s open to interpretation depending on the reader’s perspective.

We’re not seeking higher remuneration akin to Congress members, instead advocating for fair remuneration for SMM team, aligned with the same standards applied to HoM members remuneration.
