Policy Example: Consensus

All membership meetings shall operate using a consensus decision making process, except, upon a vote of 75% of the voting interests present at the meeting to break consensus, decision may be made by an affirmative vote of 75% of the voting interests of the Association. No decision to break consensus may be made until the group has attempted to reach consensus by all reasonable means, including the hiring of an outside consultant to assist the group in reaching consensus.
