Secretary
from Fancyclopedia 2 ca. 1959
The hardest-working official, with the exception sometimes of the official editor, and often combined with the treasurership. In FAPA, a card file indexing members several different ways was set up by Rothman and later, by Warner, and passed on to successors; other organizations keep records in ledger books or loose-leaf notebooks. Art Rapp once made up special ledger forms for the use of SAPS, and others for individual fans' expense records. Managing Secretary was a title in several organizations, notably New Fandom, where it was virtually the only office and roughly equivalent in power over the organization to the General Secretaryship which was Stalin's office in the CPSU(B). In FAPA the Secretary-Treasurer isn't the official keeper of records, but only maintains the membership roster and allots membership credits in his Secretary facet.
