6. Discussion Topics

  • Review of Policies & Procedures: {Slide 12}
  • http://files.sjtag.org/Documents/STAM_P2654_WG_PnP_v0.1.docx
  • The draft P&P was reviewed clause by clause.  The following were the only items noted for revision:
    •  In 3.1:
      "There shall be a biennial vote of the Working Group to elect the Chair, Vice-Chair, Editor and Secretary. A person may simultaneously hold the positions of Treasurer and another office, other than Chair."
      Delete the second sentence (in red) - it is irrelevant as the group does not propose to have a Treasurer.
    • Also in 3.1:
      "Nominees shall be eligible to hold the office, if and when they are elected (see Clause 3.0). A person shall be nominated for no more than one office except in the case of Treasurer, as per Clause 3.0. Upon written notification, the nominee shall, within 14 calendar days, indicate acceptance or rejection of the nomination. If no nomination is received or accepted for an office, a temporary appointment shall be made in accordance with Clause 3.2."
      Delete the phrase in red - it is irrelevant as the group does not propose to have a Treasurer.
  • As the agenda is already largely filled for next week, we can pick this up again on January 21 to collect any further revisions, and vote on group approval prior to submitting to TTSC.
  • Ian will incorporate the revisions above into draft 0.2, post on the website and circulate a link to the group {ACTION}.

    • Use Case Context, Application Context
    • Legacy Infrastructure, SJTAG Infrastructure (placeholders for now, really for working group to define).
