Planning Council Bylaws Change

Noticed 5/20/02, for Council Vote 6/24/02

 

Current Bylaws language, under Article III, Section 2:

 

In addition to the above categories of representation, sixty-seven percent of the Council members shall be self-disclosed Persons Living with HIV (PLWH).

 

Not less than forty percent of the Council members shall be consumers of Title I-funded services at the time of their appointment who are free of conflict of interest, defined as not being officers, employees, or consultants to any entity that receives Title I funds and not representing any such entity. They shall reflect the demographics of the population of individuals with HIV disease in the eligible area. For purposes of this section, an individual shall be considered to be receiving services if the individual is a parent of, or a caregiver for, a minor child who is receiving such services.

 

 

The Membership Committee moves to change the above language to read:

 

Note:  Bold text represents added text; strike-through text represents existing text to be removed.

 

In addition to the above categories of representation, sixty-seven percent of the Council members shall be self-disclosed Persons Living with HIV (PLWH). 

 

In addition to the above categories of representation, the Planning Council shall maintain as a goal for nomination to the Council the most number of HIV-positive persons as possible, always ensuring that the minimum number required by the Federal Legislation is met, where applicable. With this in mind, the Planning Council will maintain a majority of HIV-positive members (equal to or greater than 51%) regardless of minimums outlined elsewhere.

 

The Planning Council will meet the minimum unaffiliated consumer representation as called for in the Federal Legislation (33%), and will hold this only as a minimum, and will make efforts to exceed it.  Unaffiliated Consumers Not less than forty percent of the Council members shall be consumers of Title I-funded services at the time of their appointment who are free of conflict of interest, defined as not being officers, employees, or consultants to any entity that receives Title I funds and not representing any such entity. They shall reflect the demographics of the population of individuals with HIV disease in the eligible area. For purposes of this section, an individual shall be considered to be receiving services if the individual is a parent of, or a caregiver for, a minor child who is receiving such services.
