Amendment • Section 10.b • Voting Eligibility - Voting rights are conferred upon SCC members (as defined in §9) based upon IDESG voting status and active participation. SCC members who are voting members of the IDESG are eligible for voting rights in the SCC. To maintain those rights (i.e., participate in a vote), the member must meet the requirements in RoA §12.16. • Rationale: §12.16 applies to quorum, not voting.
