Note: Graduate projects can arrange to have Non-Voting Member representation on the Outreach Committee. To do so, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
In various situations, the LF AI & Data Outreach Committee shall hold a vote. These votes can happen on the phone, email, or via a voting service, when appropriate. Outreach Committee voting members can either respond "agree, yes, +1", "disagree, no, -1", or "abstain".
a) Quorum for Governing Board and Committee meetings will require fifty percent of the voting representatives. If advance notice of the meeting has been given per normal means and timing, the Governing Board may continue to meet even if quorum is not met, but will be prevented from making any decisions at the meeting.
b) Ideally decisions will be made based on consensus. If, however, any decision requires a vote to move forward, the representatives of the Governing Board or Committee, as applicable, will vote on a one vote per voting representative basis.
c) Except as provided in Section 16.a., decisions by vote at a meeting will require a simple majority vote, provided quorum is met. Except as provided in Section 16.a., decisions by electronic vote without a meeting will require a majority of all voting representatives.
d) In the event of a tied vote with respect to an action that cannot be resolved by the Governing Board, the Chair may refer the matter to the LF for assistance in reaching a decision. If there is a tied vote in any Committee that cannot be resolved, the matter may be referred to the Governing Board.
Additional information is available in the LF AI & Data Charter.

The Outreach Committee meets on the first Wednesday of each month. The Outreach Committee meetings are restricted to members only (designated members listed above) per the LF AI & Data Charter, but if you have a topic you would like to request to be added to the agenda please email email@example.com.
Due to the size of the committee, which includes Premier/General/Associate members along with a representative from each Graduated project, the committee utilizes a subscription based calendar which is currently used by larger groups at the LF and LF AI & Data, such as the Technical Advisory Council (TAC) and our various technical projects. The subscription model allows each representative from the committee to add the calendar to their preferred email tool and updates to any meetings will automatically be generated. The Outreach Committee Calendar will be tied to the Groups.io mailing list (firstname.lastname@example.org) participation. Details for subscribing to the meetings are available on the Groups.io outreach-committee subgroup wiki.
Outreach Committee members can view all past meeting content (decks/minutes) in the email@example.com mail list message archive in Groups.io. Effective 2020, Outreach Committee members can view past meeting content under the Groups.io files section for the outreach-committee mail list.
