Will the meeting be long?

It’s up to voters. Efforts have been made to ensure that the deliberative function of the meeting is preserved and to keep the discussion moving. There are some articles that will be grouped together as part of a consent agenda. This will allow some articles to be voted on as a group rather than having separate consideration of each one. If a voter would like to take an article up for separate consideration, they may do so when the moderator asks for any holds on the article numbers by calling out “Hold.” This will allow for more time to focus on issues that have more anticipated areas of disagreement. Speakers will be brief. The main mover of a motion will have 4 minutes, and speakers from the floor will have 2 (as usual).
