Inactive Council members

- Email Inquiry: If there is no response after 5 days from the initial phone call, the Council will escalate the matter by emailing the inactive member. The email will serve as an inquiry to understand their inactivity.
- Temporary Volunteer Status: If there is still no response after 7 days from the email inquiry, the council member will be temporarily moved to the volunteer status. This action is taken to address prolonged inactivity and ensure the efficient functioning of the Council.
By implementing this process, the LIAP Council aims to maintain active participation and ensure that all members contribute to the foundation’s objectives. It also serves to identify and address any potential issues or concerns affecting a member’s involvement.
Leaving the Council
When a Council member decides to leave the Council, they should provide prior notice of their intention. Upon leaving, they can transition to other roles within the organisation, such as Team Members, Volunteers, or Member Status, depending on their preference and commitment level. This allows for a smooth transition and ensures that the individual’s valuable contributions can still be utilized within the LIAP Foundation in a different capacity.
