We endeavor to provide a structure whereby participation in this committee is open to new members who can infuse this committee with new ideas, initiatives, and fresh perspectives. If you have an interest in serving on the Share Care Committee, please notify any member and we will consider your membership when we have a vacancy. New at-large members are decided by a majority vote of the sitting members, and only when a quorum is reached. A quorum is defined as half the committee (rounded up to a whole number if necessary). We currently consist of seven members. Therefore, five members must be present to achieve a quorum. A vote/motion is carried when half the quorum plus one votes to approve or defeat the motion in question. In this instance a minimum of four votes would be needed to carry a motion.
