[b]Proposal on Quorums

Last Saturday's GA there were very few people, discussed having a quorum


-should have a second proposal to make 1 GA a week
-change language to at point of consensus
-we can always amend the number in the future!
-If there is not a quorum, then it can pass at the next GA without a Quorum as long as the proposal has not changed (so as not to hold up business)
-If we publish proposal and people still dont' show up then it is their fault, lack of quorum an't stop us from doing business after 2nd GA
-Remember quorum is the least possible number

Temp check: 25 people for Quorum:
4 stand asides-should be higher/too small to be representative/25 ppl can really alter the org through a single GA

Temp check: 30 people for Quorum:
4 stand asides: too high

Amendment: proposal must be presented on OE contacts at least 24 hours before GA
-not in line with facilitation process for agenda setting, they have a form

Tabled until Saturday

I can't find the actual proposal, Plaedo had it and I am trying to get a hold of him to post it. Post it if we have it! Hopefully we can get up soon.
