<div>&lt;JB: I&#39;m with Colin Wallis here (noting I have no vote!) that LC stays in.  The LC should elect it&#39;s own leadership, votes to Finalize Reports, &lt;and determines if the OPs have been followed to allow for a Recommendation. I do suggest the below for clarity:<br>



<br>&lt;The following actions require a Majority of eligible voting membership<br>&lt;- Elections for Chair, Vice-Chair, and Secretary; <br>&lt;- Acceptance of final Reports <br>&lt;- Approval of Recommendations for LC initiation all-Member ballots.<br>

&gt; <br>&gt; I believe that the line at the end of section 3.7 should be changed from:<br>&gt; <br>&gt; &quot;The following actions require a Majority of the LC voting membership&quot;<br>&gt; <br>&gt; to:<br>&gt; <br>&gt; The following actions require a Majority of the voting membership<br>

&gt; Subject: [KI-LC] First draft of a revised OP<br>&gt; <br>&gt; Hi all -<br>&gt; <br>&gt; A while back we had started talking about updating the By-Laws and Operating<br>&gt; Procedures for Kantara.  Here is a first draft of a revised OP (By-Laws will<br>



&gt; come out later this week).  I have turned on Track Changes so you can<br>&gt; quickly see what has changed.<br>&gt; <br>&gt; A couple of questions were never fully answered when we were initially<br>&gt; discussing this a few months back:<br>



&gt; <br>&gt; * Procedures for handling nominations to any leadership position are not<br>&gt; laid out in the OP.  Are there any categories of Members/Participants that<br>&gt; are NOT allowed to be nominated in to a position?  Should there be a minimum<br>



&gt; nomination period?  Can anyone submit a nomination?  Need to clarify these<br>&gt; things.<br>&gt; <br>&gt; Colin S further raised the question as to whether Members who were not WG or<br>&gt; DG chairs could be elected to the LC.<br>
