[NA-Discuss] Bottom Up Action Procedure - Last Time?

Hi all,

I have now incorporated Eduardo’s suggestion into the wording.  I hope that we have got this nailed down now!

1.       NARALO has a discussion on its mailing list and/or telephone conferences about a policy position it wishes the ALAC to advance.

2.       Once consensus is achieved according to the NARALO Operating Procedures, the NARALO Chair sends a request to the Chair of the ALAC clearly stating our intentions and a specific request for action as per the group decision.

3.       A person or people from NARALO will be designated as the ALAC liaison for the specific issue and it will be their responsibility to request that the matter be given a place on the ALAC agenda.  This person or people will then present the matter to the ALAC during their regularly scheduled conference call.

4.       The liaison will then report back to the group.  If ALAC rejects the request, the region will be so informed and the reasons for rejection given.  At that time, the region will decide to move or not to move forward with the issue at hand.  If the decision is to move forward, the Chair will contact other regions directly to gain support.  If there is enough interest from two or more regions then the Chair should refer the issue back to ALAC.  It may also be decided that the NARALO will advance the issue by itself without ALAC support.

Please let me know if any more changes are desired.  If not, I will post this to our Wiki.  Thank you all so much for your input!
