Section 3.2.5 of TIA's Enginnering Manual States:                                                   Section 5.3.2 of TIA's Enginnering Man

     3.2.5 Membership Voting Continuation
     Option B (excludes ballots)
     The criterion for removal of a company (or organization) from voting status in a
     Formulating Group is absence from three consecutive meetings.
     When a company holding voting status in a Formulating Group has gone
     unrepresented for three successive meetings, the Chair shall so advise the
     Staff unless, on a case-by-case basis, failure to participate or attend is
     excused. The Chair shall notify the company of its failure to meet minimum
     participation requirements and shall remove the company and its
     representatives from the list of voting Members. Reinstatement requires a
     resumption of participation in the Committee's work, and participation in two
     consecutive meetings. The Chair shall notify the Staff when reinstatement
     requirements have been met.




     Formulating Group Chairs are required to enforce the Membership continuation
     rules in order to maintain their ability to raise a quorum at meetings. (See
     Section 5.3.2.) In addition, any participant in default of payment of fees may
     have membership rights
     Formulating Group Chairs should also encourage Member companies to
     ensure that the person shown on the distribution lists as their Voting
     Representative is in fact the person who attends Formulating Group meetings.

         Section 5.3.2 of TIA's Enginnering Manual States:




                5.3.2 Quorum
                A quorum of a Formulating Group, consisting of a simple majority
                of the listed voting Member companies, is required to conduct
                business. Listed, in this case, means those Member companies
                represented on the Formulating Group voting Member list
                established by the Chair and maintained in the offices of TIA. If a
                Member company is not represented at a meeting, and if its
                absence constitutes a failure to meet the participation requirements
                for maintaining voting membership (See Section 3.2.5), it may be
                removed from the Voting Member list for the purpose of
                determining if a quorum is present. After quorum is established,
                any new Members who have vested voting rights should be so
                advised. (See Section 3.2.5.)

                Any participant who is not a member of the Formulating Group and
                who desires to join the group, should be advised to submit a
                membership application in accordance with Section 3.2.

                After the first meeting of a new Formulating Group, the participants
                participating in the first meeting shall establish quorum.


                It is the Chair’s responsibility to ensure that decisions or actions are
                only taken in the presence of a quorum.
                If a quorum is not present, no final action may be taken, but
                material may be distributed to the Formulating Group for action by
                Letter Ballot.
