The penalty for GC Members is already specified in the existing
Section 1, Qualifications.
"Because grievances are considered personnel matters, all volunteers
must state that they are willing to abide by strict confidentiality
requirements. Volunteers must also state that they understand that
violation of this confidentiality agreement will mean immediate
expulsion from the Grievance Committee, and could result in
determination of Member Not in Good Standing by the Advisory Board. "
If the new consequences section specifies a penalty for GC Members,
then the existing Qualifications section will have to be changed to
reconcile with the new section.
