Please Open ISSUE-34 (good standing)


There are very few groups who still use the concept of good standing, and it is not at all clear that the very specific rules are actually useful ones anyway.

I would like this issue to be opened - I propose that we remove the entire section and instead move the statement from chapter 7 allowing groups to use specific procedures to the section on chartering, and clarify that it can include rules on standing, entitlement to attend meetings, etc. I also think any such rules need to be applied either universally or not at all, rather than leaving them at the discretion of chairs.
