  1. We will respect the opinions of each member of the committee.

  2. We will not speak while others members are speaking. In addition, members wishing to speak should raise their hand and speak only when recognized by the chair.

  3. Every member must agree to respect and adhere to the Committee's decisions.

  4. Only members of the Executive Committee, or the person(s) it designates, can speak for this organization.

  5. Members may sign up to participate on more than one subcommittee, but any one member can be the facilitator of only one subcommittee.

  6. All recommendations arising out of our subcommittees must be approved by the body as a whole before they can be implemented.

  7. The positions we take and the decisions we make shall be on the basis of majority vote. Of course, as often as possible, our goal will be to achieve consensus.

  8. Any one who adheres to our principles of unity and has already attended one complete meeting is eligible to vote on our agenda's action items. (The attendance requirement does not apply at the first meeting of the year.)

  9. Failure to adhere to any of these principles can be grounds for the Committee-as-a-whole to terminate a person's membership in the MLK Celebration Committee.

  • All of our meetings shall be conducted through the use of Robert's Rules of Order, latest edition.
