Expanded draft of FACADatabase Charter I was also going to suggest some streamlining, but Maggie has done such a great job that I only have a few minor suggestions (and they really are minor):

1. Under "Description of Duties" -- instead of "Review and critique the documentation..." I would suggest "Review and recommend edits to the documentation..."
2. Under "Estimated Number and Frequency of Meetings" -- I suggest just one sentence: "Members are expected to convene monthly, although a significant number of meetings will occur in an online forum." I do have a question related to this, however. Do we mean that there will be online meetings IN ADDITION to the monthly meetings? That's not quite clear to me.
3. Under "Membership Composition" -- either use the plural ("If members cannot continue...") or use "he or she" rather than "they." (a grammatical quibble, I admit)

It's going to take me a while to get used to this kind of a forum -- and I have a question related to posting messages. Is it possible to view a previous post WHILE adding a comment? It would have been helpful to me to be able to see Maggie's version of the charter while making my own comments (and I didn't think to print it out before adding my own comments) and I'm new to this process, so I imagine that I have a lot to learn about how it can work.

Business Rule: New System Business Rule: Consultations: Since renewal for non-discretionary committees is a little different than that for discretionary committees (no concurrance needed, for example), it might make sense to separate the two and include only those fields applicable to the specific committee types.

Performance Measures Since most of my committees are focused on grants-making, I find that I'm often putting the same information in two places, because the Performance Measures information has one general narrative section and another focused on grants. It would be great if the Performance Measures section could be designed to address this.

Member Data Actually, it would be nice to be able to delete a member directly from the list, rather than having to go into the individual record and then delete.

On a similar note, it would be great to be able to add more than one record without having to go back to the list each time. I seem to recall that in an earlier iteration there was an "Add Record" button on the screen when you were adding another record, so that you could save one record and then immediately add another record.
