[KI-LC] Subscribers - Operating Procedures Update - related to ByLaws

Hello,

As discussed the BoT approved a motion to add a new class of involvement
for Kantara Initiative which is Subscriber (see Definition below [1])

The Subscriber class was created with a few drivers in mind. One was to
consolidate the Assurance Accreditation and Approval fees to an easier and
more logical scheme.  Another reason was to get this class of membership
ready for access to interoperability specific tools.  We have a project
moving with Geant around the creation of OpenID Connect deployment
verification tool which we're seeking to package for a certification in
2013.  The idea is that these Subscribers are really geared at
certification and approval activities.

The challenge: LC to discuss further this class of participation and
determine rules to accompany it for incorporation in to the operating
procedures.  The next step is to have input and discussion in the LC toward
draft text that would ultimately go for a full membership vote.  (The
operating procedure management is under the role of the LC and the full
membership votes on final proposed changes.)

I'm requesting this item to be added to the next LC agenda and email
discussion / thoughts in advance are more than welcome!

1.19 “Subscriber” means any entity that has completed the necessary
application forms, satisfied the objective subscriber criteria for the
Organization, executed a copy of the Member Agreement (with Subscriber
selected), and paid the appropriate Subscriber Fee as established by the
Board of Trustees. A Subscriber may be an individual, corporation,
partnership, joint venture, trust, limited liability company, business
association, governmental entity or other entity. Subscribers are typically
those entities that are Certification and Assurance Programs stakeholders.
