At today's 11AM meeting, we brought up the issue on passing proposals
at meetings. Although, there are 50+ people helping with media, only
10-15 are generally at any given meeting. So then, what number is
necessary to make a quorum and when does a decision need to be opened
up to the larger group?
Here is what was proposed: If a group in meeting feels a decision
requires immediate action (i.e. an event is happening now and it needs
to be decided whether to cover it or not) then a proposal can be
submitted and voted on by the people present, however if more than
1/10 of the people present feel the decision should be posed to the
larger media group, then an e-mail would go out informing the larger
group of the proposal and asking people to vote "yea" or "nay" either
electronically or in person at the next meeting on the following day.
This proposal is an example of something that the people at today's
meeting felt should be opened up to the larger group. So, we will vote
on whether to accept the above proposal at tomorrow's meeting (5PM).
If you cannot attend the meeting and would like to vote, please
respond with a "yea" or "nay".
For future reference, observe the hash tag "#Vote" in the title of the
e-mail, which should call to attention that a vote from you is
