Hi John,

Just to be clear though my understanding is that despite the PDP being in
place and the board principally following the process, there is no
requirement to do so. The board could decide for any reason to implement or
change a policy even if it was not an emergency situation or warrant an
urgent need. I just think this needs to be made clear to the community that
the PDP is a process used to help inform the boards decision making and is
non-binding. While the board generally adheres to the recommendations they
are able to institute any policy, reject any policy, or decide that today
they did not feel like using the PDP simply because they did not want to.
