The National Committee Listserv Protocol for Delegates' Discussion and Votes Lists (Proposal #186) was adopted by the GPUS National Committee on November 13, 2005.

Esther Choi, Green Party of Texas; Jim Weill, Green Party of California; Kai Schwandes, Green Party of North Carolina; and Jane Hunter, Green Party of New Jersey, have volunteered their services in this capacity, and have been approved by the GPUS Steering Committee.

IV. Forum Managers and Enforcement
A. The Steering Committee shall nominate three individuals, subject to
National Committee approval, to serve coincident two-year terms as
Forum Managers and one individual subject to National Committee

sitting NC delegates, alternates or others as recommended by their
State or Caucus. All nominees must be either recommended or approved
by their State or Caucus. All three Forum Managers can not be of the

other vacancy, the Alternate will serve the remainder of the term as a
Forum Manager. In addition the SC shall nominate a replacement to fill
the role of Alternate, to be approved by the NC via the same method
used to nominate and elect the Forum Manager. The replacement
Alternate Forum Manager will fill the balance of the term as Alternate.
