Background

This will amend the third paragraph under CCC Committee Structure in CCC Rules and Procedures to clarify and ensure inclusion
of non-binary individuals. Parity for women members is retained due to the need to ensure representation of women in electoral politics,
without excluding nonbinary individuals.

Proposal

The third paragraph of CCC COMMITTEE STRUCTURE under Coordinated Campaign Committee Rules and Procedures shall be amended to read according
to the Revised Version posted below (changes are in CAPS in revised version, below the original):

CURRENT LANGUAGE
The committee shall always have an equal number of males and females on Its roster except when it has an odd number of members. Then its makeup can Be
+1 for any gender. The exception to this rule is that no member of the committee shall be asked or forced to resign from the committee in order to reestablish
the gender balance. The balance will be re established by Adding members to the committee. Each year the election to fill seats on the CCC shall actually
be two elections, one to elect males to the committee, one to elect females to the committee. The number of men and women elected in any given year shall
be determined by nature of the vacancies in that year with the goal of having 5 men and 5 women on the committee.

REVISED VERSION

can be +1 for any gender. The exception to this rule is that no member of the committee shall be asked or forced to resign from the committee in order
to re-establish the [] balance. The balance will be [re-established] by adding members to the committee. Each year, the election to fill [open seats on
the CCC shall [] be two elections, one to elect [up to 5 women] to the committee, one to elect [up to 5 open seats for men and nonbinary individuals].
