Charter and Bylaws Amendment Passed by Panel

The Community Resilience Panel passed an amendment to its Charter and Bylaws in November 2016 to make the following operational changes to the Panel process:

  • The Coordinating Committee will vote on external documents (i.e., those developed outside the Panel) proposed for addition to the Resilience Knowledge Base. External documents will not require the entire Panel’s review since many of the documents have already been reviewed through other processes (e.g., journal articles, government agency documents, etc.)
  • Documents developed by the Panel will still require an affirmative vote of the Panel to be included in the RKB.
