Does CCMP Need By-Laws?

Monday, April 21st, 2008

The question we want to ask you today: should CCMP develop By-Laws to make sure we have a clear & transparent structure and governing mechanism?

There are many questions that are related: Who are the officers, how do they get elected? What are the committees? Where/When are the meetings, and how often? What are the working groups? Who makes up the Steering Committee? How to deal with education/knowledge? And so forth.

Your thoughts? Please share them with the community by leaving a comment.
