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

    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 dropped or suspended (See
    Section 3.2.9)
    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.
