NancyD's Motion:

Addendum to the Op application process

If a member fails to show up at the business meeting in which the agenda shows their application for OP status is scheduled to be voted upon, they are considered disqualified and must re-apply to be voted upon at the next business meeting.

If a member, even after re-applying for OP status, fails to show up for three (3) consecutive business meetings to be voted upon as an OP, that member is considered disqualified and must wait three (3)months before applying again.

This guideline may be waived if a majority of Officers agree that the member presents a valid and compelling reason for being absent for one business meeting. In such case, the member's application forOP status will be tabled and carried over to the following business meeting only.

Clarification: In short, this addendum's intention says 'Apply to OP and show up at next business meeting,or start the process over again' .... period, end of discussion.

Motion withdrawn by presenter.
