to approval of the board, the committee shall make reasonable procedures
for transacting its business. The committee should set up appropriate and
reasonable guidelines for its operations and decisions as soon as possible.

Membership and organisation

The committee will consist of five (5) members selected by the board of
directors,, all of whom have to be contributing members of SPI. It
will present its proposals in time for the general meeting in July. After
completing its intended purpose the committee will be dissolved.
