Council Discusses, Postpones Policy Governance Decision
By 12th Moon,
Meeting November 9, Council addressed most business on our agenda, met the recently-hired Program Director of our affiliate organization, GreenStar Community Projects, Inc. (GSCP) and once again discussed, deliberated, debated and further delayed any final decision on our future governance system, arguably the most important issue facing us for more than a year now.

The petition was given to the Membership Committee to start the process of verification of member signatures, the first step when Council receives a member-initiated petition. It was determined that there were not enough verifiable member signatures to go forward with the process and the petition was returned to the petitioner, having garnered only 23 of the necessary 40 (at the time, now 100 under our new bylaws revision) signatures.
