Dear FDSN Steering Committee,

Thanks to Tim Ahern for pointing out that the previously-proposed
revision did not require that the executive committee be elected from
within member organizations, and should. The FDSN Executive Committee
had an ad hoc meeting on May 3 and agreed that this was an oversight,
and that instead it is sufficient to remove the spurious requirement
that executive committee members be steering committee members.

Below is the new proposed wording, for your approval:

“The FDSN executive committee consists ofis headed bya chair,who will be
assisted bya secretary,a treasurerand the chairs of all FDSN working
groups. The chair of the executive committee will preside over the
meetings of the steering committee. Members of the executive committee
shall be elected byfrom withinthe steering committeeor themember
organizations. Elections take place during steering committee meetings.”

Please vote by responding to fdsn-representatives<at> with
YES or NO, to indicate that your organization approves of the revised
wording. Voting will close June 6, 2024, three weeks from now.
