Decision Making

Decisions will be made by those listed representatives in attendance at a meeting when a decision needs to be made in the presence of a quorum.  Decisions will be by consensus defined as 80% or more of those present supporting an action.  A quorum is defined as three or more of the nine listed organizations (not individuals) in attendance.
