HI Alan,

I am not saying to put some one in a decision making role who is not active in 
any committee.  I agree, I do not think this would be effective.  I am just 
saying we should not have to restrict ourselves to only choosing some one who is 
a member/participant of the Outreach and Finance and Budget. We may want to 
choose some one who was an active member of another At Large working group or 
Committee.  I think we should not restrict our choice to only those two 
committees. If some one is active on another committee RALO leaders may want to 
try and convince them to become the CROPP RT or join that committee if we think 
it would be a good fit for that person.  I am just seeking to get this chance. I 
think this is also what Ali was also asking?  I really thought that this was the 
addition was what Cheryl had put forward which is why I did not say anything in
