Agenda Item: Open on AB-CHAT is addressing the issue of a lack of volunteers for the Election Committee and related issues 03 June 2012
The agenda item currently open on AB-CHAT is addressing the issue of a lack
of volunteers for the Election Committee and related issues.  The discussion
has stalled and the following was posted by Pat Asher on 24 May 2012:  "I
suggest we drop this item from the agenda since the underlying issue --
getting people to volunteer -- is something the AB can not control.  We can
stress a need for volunteers, but we can not compel, nor should we."

Are there any objections to closing this agenda item without action?  If you
agree with the closing of the agenda item, please respond with "AGREE".  If
you disagree with the closing of this agenda item, please respond with
"DISAGREE".  The poll will continue until 6 June 2012 8 am EDT or until
everyone has responded.

Sherri Bradley
National Coordinator

06 June 2012
Having heard from everyone except Nancy Beach, the poll results were 100%
in favor of dropping this agenda item.  It will be marked 'closed' on the
agenda and moved to the archived list of completed items.
