Meeting process

This meeting will be conducted openly drawing on the principles of Paliamentary Procedure and working according to the draft agenda.

The following process is used for conducting the meeting:

  • There is a draft discussion area for developing a motion. Each prospective motion is listed as a subpage from this meeting page. Attendees should add their thoughts, comments and suggestions to the draft motion. Due to the asynchronous nature of the meeting, this drafting process is used to minimise unnecessary amendments once a motion is tabled. During this phase the draft is listed as "Under development" in the Motions and votes sub-section below.
  • Once a reasonable level of consensus appears apparent, the chair will suggest that the draft motion be formerly tabled. Technically the Chair cannot table a motion, and this must be done by a member of the meeting. During this phase the motion is listed as "Active: discuss and vote" in the Motions and votes sub-section below.
  • Once the motion has been seconded, voting can commence. Note that seconding a motion does not count as a vote. The person seconding the motion does not necessarily have to agree with the tabled motion. Approval, disapproval or abstention must be indicated by affirmative voting by signing your wiki. Due to the asynchronous nature of the meeting, we do not practice the assumption of assent rule in cases where a member does not cast any votes.
  • Approval of the motion is determined by majority vote being more than 50% of the attendance register for the meeting.
  • Due to time constraints, we shall presume approval of the agenda. Additional items can be listed under other business. In the event that we do not have time to address all matters by the proposed date for adjournment, these will be held over as old business for the 2nd planning meeting.


Dates: 29 October 2009 - 4 November 2009
