If the community needs a petition, someone from the community should step forward to initiate it. It’s proper form. MH disagreed stating that forcing to act as one body is counter to what we are doing. CG agreed with CA and stated that if there is a need for a petition,there should be no problem finding someone to do it, even if it is someone within your own organization. It does not restrict any AC member from voicing their opinion.

It is an accurate reflection of what transpired to the best of my recollection.
I remember both you and I voting against the motion, but, it did pass and that is the standing rule.
Of course a motion to amend or deprecate the standing rule is in order under "any other business" at any meeting.
