Decision making with regards to new project proposals and new processes undertaken by the NCSFNSS currently takes place in two ways. First, Board Members at a NCSFNSS Board meeting are free to propose an activity or project to the Board for consideration. The Board can then ask NCSFNSS staff to carry out research on the proposed activity and report back to the NCSFNSS Board for a decision. Secondly, NCSFNSS staff and/ or members of SSHARC can propose an activity at a SSHARC meeting. That proposed activity may then be placed on a future NCSFNSS Board Meeting agenda for consideration.
