[SAC] System Administrator Committee Guidelines

Dear SAC,

Following up on the recent discussion on the conference committee (motion to update their membership policies and process), and the issues raised by this motion, the board has held a video meeting to discuss the issue of committee guidelines.

As a result, the board is asking everyone to write down "committee guidelines" on how each functions. The idea is to make sure our committees are transparent in their decision making, and open to participation.

There is a wiki page here https://wiki.osgeo.org/wiki/Committee_Guidelines that provides more information (and helpfully provides guidance for committee chairs). There are some examples of different committees doing their thing here (https://wiki.osgeo.org/wiki/Committee_Guidelines\#Examples\).

Best regards,
