  • Membership Committee involved only in bookkeeping
  • Membership Committee approves Term membership and endorses Full membership (requires a formal vote of current Full members) along with continued monitoring of T and F member status

  • Require the Membership Committee to monitor the status and activities of Limited members by requesting periodic updates from the sponsor (spokesperson or proposal or CAA)

  • The decision to approve or deny this change requires a vote of Full Collaboration Members
