Talk:Proposed membership Policy
The volunteer hours suggestion would solve Melissa's concerns for her science team. We don't want to loose them over this. But as the organization grows there has to be a simple way of identifying members as voting or non-voting.
Another way, which would be great if we can pull it off, is to have members decide at sign-up (can change it anytime) to accept or decline voting rights. That way, the people who just want to follow won't impact our quorum calculations.
It could also be incorporated into a membership drive where by members get an extension on their dues if they recruit a couple people. Debi-Lee June 21
