It is the responsibility of the individual members to send someone from their organization as an alternate if they are unable to attend a meeting.
Membership shall be established through an application and approval by the Executive Committee. Prospective members can be nominated or self-nominate.
Members serve a 3 year term with a 2 term limit. A second term must be approved by the Executive Committee following the same application process as for new members. New members can begin their term anytime but their term begins in July.
The Executive Committee is made up of 3-5 members to plan and facilitate meetings as well as to vote in new members. One year term limit for Chair, Vice Chair, Past Chair, Secretary, and Treasurer.
Decisions are made by a majority vote of those present at meetings. Absent members lose their vote unless they have sent an alternate.
