Subject: RE: [oasis-board-comment] Re: [board-agenda] Conflict of Interest Policy Final Draft

I see your point. However, I wonder if it should be tidied up further:
surely it should be:
"...if the affected member or officer does not agree that a Conflict of
Interest may have arisen, then that person shall leave the Board meeting..."
Unless the Board member concerned states that there *is* a conflict and
until the Board deliberates (the subject of the next phrase in the section),
there is only the presumption that a CoI *may* have arisen.

BTW, The para is in Article III section 2, not 3

Subject: [oasis-board-comment] Re: [board-agenda] Conflict of Interest
Policy Final Draft

   i think there is a bug in the wording in Article III, section 3:

The intent, if i understand it correctly, is that if the person agrees that
there is a conflict of interest, then no further action has to be taken by
the board to determine if one exists. It is only in the case that the person
disagrees that there is a Conflict that the board has to discuss and make a
   That is not what the draft policy says.

So i think that in the 2nd sentence of III/3 the words "or possible"  
should be deleted:

Immediately afterwards, if the affected member or officer does not agree
that an actual ***or possible *** Conflict of Interest exists, then that
person shall leave the Board meeting while the determination of a conflict
of interest is discussed and voted upon.
