Article IX: Administration of the UFOP


  1. From time to time, the EC may vote to expand any reserved function to include the meaningful participation and affectation by voting of the CC if it so desires. If this shall occur, then the CC and the EC shall all have one vote and the matter shall be resolved by a majority of 51% or greater.
  2. The EC shall do this when and if, in its discretion, it feels that reasons of administration, fairness, comity, intellectual freedom or other concerns mitigate in favor of a more expansive voting treatment of any issue reserved to the EC.
  3. The CC may likewise ask for the formal participation of the EC members in any vote concerning a reserved function. If this be the case, however, then the EC shall not have the power to veto the outcome of that vote if the EC by majority vote agrees to participate in the vote of the CC on that matter or question.
  4. Either the EC or the CC may ask the other council for an “advisory vote” which shall have no binding effect but shall have persuasive effect and which vote shall be generated and conducted in all matters identically with formal votes.
  5. Committees and Officers in Charge. Depending on which body is exercising its power and subject to any veto by the EC, either the CC or the EC may create and staff committees, subcommittees and “offices in charge” of various matters. These committees shall be chartered to exist for either: a set period of time, indefinitely or until a certain task is completed. They may then be dissolved or placed on an inactive list of committees. The committee may also be continued as the need arises and at the discretion of the enabling body. These committees and officers in charge shall include but shall not be limited to the following subjects and/or matters:
