Charter Team

The Charter Team was formed to study NCWM’s standards development process and ultimately provide recommendations to the Board of Directors to improve the efficiency and stakeholder participation.

The team began by identifying strengths and weaknesses in the NCWM process.  Next it developed 2 concepts as options in helping the organization provide adequate regulations to users in a timelier basis.  Concept 1 has suggestions for improving the current NCWM model.  Concept 2 would be a more significant change, suggesting that a voting session take place twice per year instead of once. 

The Charter Team Report is being presented by the Board of Directors for stakeholder comment.
