More going on behind-the-scenes. It’s very clear that to move forward, knowing how decisions will be made is crucial. Thus the work of the Governance Task Force is moving forward to be sure we know the “rules” as we begin to make important decisions.  Examples: we need answers to questions such as:  how do we define a quorum? What if the Committee doesn’t reach consensus? Do we need a procedure of possible ethical violations?  What happens if one member of a committee misses too many meetings?

Those questions, and two dozen more, are in the process of being answered by consensus by the group.  The majority of our February meeting was a discussion of these points.

We’ve also been seeking other groups that may also be looking into certifications that will interface with this program.
