Base Committee Governance Rules

My thought is that we can have a common "base rules" for how committees conduct business, membership, voting, minimum meeting frequency, removing members, chair elections ....... and then extend these rules as applicable to each committee. To get started, we can look at the relevant sections of the document the Conferences Committee passed late last year ( With some minimal tweaking I think we can update the relevant sections to apply across committees. I've taken a stab below (note some of this language was stolen from current by-laws)
