Motion Passed to Amend the March 19, 2017 Motion regarding “Primary Purposes of the GSR Committee”
(Motion Passed Unanimously with 7 Yays; 0 Nays; 1 abstention)
“The March 19, 2017 Motion regarding ‘Primary Purposes of the GSR Committee’ read:
‘One of the primary purposes of the GSR Committee will be to establish a monthly list of concerns of the GSRs to be conveyed to the GSB via the Liaison at the monthly GSB meeting. The GSR Committee will have its own self-determining agenda.’
This motion AMENDS the language of the March 19, 2017 motion so it now reads:
‘One of the primary purposes of the GSR Committee will be to establish a monthly report to be conveyed to the GSB and the GSR Committee. The GSR Committee will have its own self-determining agenda.'”
By the way, this e-mail IS the first official “issue” of the above-mentioned report. It is for the month of September 2017.
