Hi Heather -

The suggested changes in the document look good to me, with one correction.

I believe that the line at the end of section 3.7 should be changed from:

"The following actions require a Majority of the LC voting membership"


The following actions require a Majority of the voting membership

i.e. "LC" should not be in this section.

Subject: [KI-LC] First draft of a revised OP

Hi all -

A while back we had started talking about updating the By-Laws and Operating
Procedures for Kantara.  Here is a first draft of a revised OP (By-Laws will
come out later this week).  I have turned on Track Changes so you can
quickly see what has changed.

A couple of questions were never fully answered when we were initially
discussing this a few months back:

* Procedures for handling nominations to any leadership position are not
laid out in the OP.  Are there any categories of Members/Participants that
are NOT allowed to be nominated in to a position?  Should there be a minimum
nomination period?  Can anyone submit a nomination?  Need to clarify these

Colin S further raised the question as to whether Members who were not WG or
DG chairs could be elected to the LC.
