That NEC endorse the principle that membership on C/C/B's [i.e. committees, councils and boards] be generally reflective of the following set of eligibility criteria (in order of importance):
1) expertise
2) geography
3) gender parity
4) minority ethno-cultural representation
5) interest group representation

That the above motion, as amended, be referred to the Organization Committee for report back in March 1992. CARRIED #37-11-91
Notes
The Rev. John Barton reminded NEC that it had formally adopted the WCC "Guidelines for Sharing", which call for 50:50 men:women and 20 percent youth on all church committees and councils. This should have a bearing on NEC's eligibility criteria for C/C/B's. It was agreed that this matter would be referred to the Organization Committee as it gives further consideration to #36-11-91 (above).

Notes
"After reading the articles on 'Gender in the Media' and learning about our efforts at WACC [World Association for Christian Communication] to promote gender equality in and through the media through our GMMP [Global Media Monitoring Project] worldwide monitoring, you might be asking How can I help ? As one who is concerned about fair, unbiased and balanced reporting of women and men in all regions of the world, consider this as an invitation to assist us in making changes that will motivate people to become aware of unfair gender representation and most important, to ensure women's voices are heard ! After all, it's everyone's right to speak, to voice opinions and to be heard -- equally".
