November 26, 2013, Debbie Arendas, on behalf of the
Guidelines Committee, submitted via e-mail the following for
consideration by the ILR-SD Governing Board:
The GB did a
"suspend the rules" to allow not sitting out after a term on
a Committee for 2013. We'll need to amend the Guidelines to
make this action permanent.
This is the
language that the Guidelines Committee approved. We will
need a vote from the GB to add it to the 2014 guidelines . .
a) The term
length of each committee member is shown in the list of
Committees for the inception year of 2009.
members can serve only TWO terms before sitting out from
that Committee for a year. Committee appointees whose terms
are less than five years will be allowed to rerun for one
additional five year term. A member who serves a partial
term to fill a vacancy will be allowed to rerun for one
additional five year term.
Committee person completing two consecutive terms on one
Committee is free to run for a position on another committee
without sitting out a year.
d) A Chairperson can serve a maximum of two (2) consecutive
years as the Chairperson of a Committee.
The motion was approved by the required majority of members.
