Proposals from members, board members, or committees are given to the president in advance of a meeting; a copy is given to the executive director. The president, with the input of the executive director, decides if a given proposal will be placed directly on the board agenda, directed to a committee for further evaluation and recommendation, or handled in some other manner. All proposals must be received in writing and in advance of the meeting, whether they are initiatives led by officers or by others. Initiatives proposed by officers must have been discussed by the Executive Committee prior to being placed on the Board agenda.
