CW Role Counting. Given Council's guidance in November to alter how we count people and roles in our Alliance Committee Contribution Report to give additional roles more "credit" than had previously been included, the CW Team has recommended a survey where Council can suggest precise approaches roles and credit. Prior to the CW Team investing more time on this, the Board will review the purpose and utility of the counting system and provide the CW Team guidance in how to proceed in recommending a resolution to the Council's concerns.

Discuss Council feedback and CW proposal and provide feedback to CW Team
