GC agenda 10/18/20

Submitted 09/21/20 - By Caton C

1. I would like to make a motion to revisit the GSR and alternate GSR positions. It has been brought to our attention that the criteria for ousting a person from a trusted servant position was not met and the replacement of that position, were the criteria met, was not posted. Also, since this is a two year servanthood, should the same criteria as a 6 month position be used. If ousting the GSR was found to be in error, should this person be re-instated with more clear cut guidelines for the future. (I was voted to be the alternate GSR and, while this is a position I would be honored to commit to, I want to do what is right for the group.)
