Motion 3 (passed): We [TNC Board] move to Create a separate facebook appeals group that anyone interested in following the appeals related to the facebook forum appeals process can join.
Reasoning: A separate group would provide accountability while preventing the main TNC forum from excessive drama.
Motion 4 (REJECTED): We [TNC Board] move to Create a separate TNC sponsored and administered Transhuman Issue Discussion Group on Facebook. Reasoning: This will provide a sandbox for creative issue collaboration and for discussion of different solutions. It would remove the 'noise,' of this necessary process from the main Facebook TNC group.
Motion 5 (passed): We [TNC Board] move to accept the Texas Transhumanist Party representative to the TNC board as a representative from that organization as named initially being named Hunter Crow by the TTP.
Motion 6 (passed): We [TNC Board] move to affirm the first amendment to the United States Constitution on the separation of church and state and in doing so pending adoption of a formal policy plank the TNC will operate with the assertion that we as a political organization do not have a policy on religion save support for the United States Constitution's first amendment.
