Committee Guidelines:

  1. Listen to understand, not to respond; seek clarity.
  2. Voice opinions and questions openly in the meeting and not after; speak for yourself; everyone’s opinion is valuable and worthy of attention.
  3. Conflict over a topic is healthy; take nothing personally; engage in debate.
  4. Do not expect consensus or certainty.
  5. Explain why you don’t agree with a proposal, but when a decision is made, buy in.
  6. If people look like they have something to say, encourage them to speak.
