Points Breakdown

Florida Players Points System 2021-2022

  1. This point system will go into effect August 23rd, 2021. 
  2. In order to be an official member of Florida Players, one must be active in earning a minimum of 12 points per academic year (or 6 points per semester), meaning that the number of points and the minimum attendance requirements (see 3.) are both completed by the end of the academic year. 
  3. Members of Florida Players must achieve the following minimum attendance requirements by the end of the academic year to be considered an active member. 
    1. Minimum attendance of three (3) General Body Meetings (GBM’s)
    2. Minimum attendance of one (1) Social Event or Special Event
    3. Minimum [participation in (crew/production/acting/etc.) or attendance of] one (1) Florida Players Production
  4. How to Earn Points with Florida Players: See Points Breakdown.
  5. Member status will allow the following:
    1. To vote in any FP election (both Regular and Special)
    2. To vote on Constitutional Changes
    3. To run for any Executive Board positions
    4. To become a Florida Players Mentor
  6. For voter status, the point totals will reset at the end of the academic year and new points must be actively earned to renew this status.
  7. While 12 points/year (or 6 points/semester) is the minimum to be a voting member, those who earn more could be subject to certain perks. This is the Florida Players Tier List, described as followed
    1. Tier 0: 6 Points
      1. Become an active member, status as described in article 2
      2. FP Membership Button
    2. Tier 1: 18 Points
      1. Early access to Florida Players Ticket Reservations
    3. Tier 2: 24 Points
      1. Pre-scheduling Audition Slots

*These points would carry over from the previous semester to determine perk eligibility, but will reset for the following semester. This gives members who join no matter the semester the motivation to stay active
(Ex. Shannon earned 18 points for Fall semester, giving her the ability to pre-schedule auditions and reserve tickets early in the Spring. To keep these perks going into next Fall, Shannon needs to earn the point minimum again in the Spring) 

  1. To reiterate, points for votership are accumulated every year. Points for the tier list are accumulated every semester. 
  2. Any member who is inactive for two semesters back-to-back will be removed from our point system and emailing list; if they rejoin they will need to provide their contact information again.

For example, if a mentor and mentee went to a museum together (and took a picture together and emailed it to floridaplayers.secretary@gmail.com), that would be considered a mentor/mentee evidenced outing. But if the “outing” were a Florida Players show or fundraiser, that would not count, as it is connected to the organization.
