Houston IMC Policy for Violations of the Mission Statement and/or Action Guidelines When consensus has been reached that a signatory to the Membership Document has violated the Mission Statement or Action Guidelines, the following actions will be taken.

1. Counseling

The individual will be publicly (on the listserv or in a public meeting) asked to acknowledge the violation in question. If the individual acknowledges the violation within a week and recommits to the Mission Statement and Action Guidelines, counseling will be considered concluded. If the individual does not acknowledge the violation within a week, he/she will be held in suspension from the listserv and work groups until such time as he/she acknowledges the violation and recommits to the Mission Statement and Action Guidelines. 2. Probation

If within six months, consensus is reached that a second violation has occurred, the individual will be publicly (on the listserv or in a public meeting) asked to acknowledge the violation in question. If the individual acknowledges the violation within a week and recommits to the Mission Statement and Action Guidelines, he/she will be held in suspension from the listserv and work groups for three months. If the individual does not acknowledge the violation within a week, he/she will be held in suspension from the listserv and work groups until such time as he/she acknowledges the violation and recommits to the Mission Statement and Action Guidelines. At that time, the probation period will begin. 3. Expulsion

If within six months of the second violation, consensus is reached that a third violation has occurred, the individual will be considered permanently expelled from the listserv and work groups.
