Architecture participation is open to all individuals who qualify as members of CIECA.
An individual may participate within Architecture without being a member of Architecture.
Membership within Architecture is granted after attending two consecutive Architecture meetings and 50% of the scheduled meetings after membership is established. Attendance criteria includes full Architecture meetings as well as Architecture sub-committee meetings.
A scheduled meeting is a meeting announced as both CIECA webinar meetings and face to face meetings.
Membership is granted to the individual, not an organization.
All approval decisions are made openly and on a consensus basis. Consensus requires that all views and objections be openly and honestly considered, and that a concerted effort be made toward resolution. The group will agree collectively on recognizing different positions.
