2015 Spring Conference Consent Agenda

Written by

In order for us to utilize our time more effectively at the Business Meeting on Saturday, April 25, we have put together some of the routine items discussed into a Consent Agenda. These routine items are packaged and accepted as a group. In this package are items that do not need any discussion or a vote. Any District Officer can request the removal of an item from the Consent Agenda if they feel that we should vote on it independently. However, the idea here is to be able to focus on items that need more attention and limit the time spent on the items that are general in nature.

Please take a few moments to review the attached package. If you have any concerns, please send your request in writing to Gwen Earle, This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it., prior to our Business Meeting.
