Within thirty days of opening, Policy Committee:
All documents must be distributed to members in their preferred languages. Guidance or models for some of the procedures (ERSEA, hiring, standards of conduct, and selection of Policy Committee) are available from the grantee office. These may be presented to the Committee, who can adapt them to their own program, approve them as is, or develop their own. Minutes of the meeting show the actions by which all policies and procedures were adopted.
Within thirty days of the Policy Committee approval, the policies and procedures are presented to the Board of Directors of the agency, for their approval.
Should the two groups fail to reach an agreement, they will follow the agency's impasse policies to resolve the dispute.
