> I offer the following draft of the reviser NARALO Operating Procedures
> In summary, I have changed:
> - a number of things we noted before as problems but never fixed
> - the tie-breaking which triggered this revision
> - other important things I found along the way.
> All of our documents are BADLY in need of revision. This is NOT that 
> effort, but I have tried to fix the really serious issues and 
> particularly ones that have caused us problems in the past.
> In detail by section number:
> 7. Adding the possibility for a shared Secretariat, which already 
> implied in section 8 by the "person(s)". As far as I can find, we have 
> no "language requirements", so I deleted the reference to it.
> 9. That is primarily where the ALAC Member responsibilities now reside 
> (or pointed to by RoP).
> 11. Removal of the term "Statement of Interest" which now has another 
> meaning. Nominations is what this process is referred to in ALAC docs, 
> and in fact, that is what actually happens except in the rare 
> self-nomination case.
> 12. Goes with above.
> 15. Currently, only a rep of a true ALS can vote to alter the 
> Operating Procedures. The representative of unaffiliated members was 
> accidentally omitted. This fixes that.
> 16. Since we say that selections should largely be by consensus, this 
> fits better than just counting votes which might not happen.
> 17. Again removing a mis-used "Statement of Interest" and making the 
> process clear. I also made it clear how you lose unaffiliated 
> membership. I removed what is essentially an implementation issue that 
> did not belong in the rules and added a tie-breaking rule patterned on 
> that in 13.
> 19. The new rule for tie-breaking in a Chair or Secretariat election.
> 20. To counteract section 12.9 of the Procedure for Meetings which 
> says we vote like LAC, with weighted voting balancing countries.
> 21. Fix the many discrepancies among documents.
