    a. Plan to vote on proposed profile voting mechanism and method by June 2015
    b. Voting mechanism and method applies to short list and final list of profile selection each cycle
    c. Problem– hard to attract new writers/profiles, Majorities disenfranchising minorities, Need to find ways to give minority voters a voice in voting process
    d. Voting member organization:
    i. Defined by IHE Int'l Board
    ii. Description of voting on IHE wiki [[1]]
    iii. One rep from member organization can vote
    iv. Encourage rotation of radiologists to participate in calls (RSNA/ACR) – their participation is crucial
    v. Get more feedback who are interested/knowledgeable – make clear that org can still vote/participate – reason for alternate contacts
  2. Discuss proposed profile voting method to be used in Aug 2015
    a. Voting method: Letter ballot as opposed to exclusively “live” vote during webex
    1. WebEx discussion still needed/necessary to make changes/updates
    a. In-depth discussions are useful to vote upon rather than 5-minute overview
    2. Offline ballot
    a. If you haven’t heard discussion, might be unclear of changes
    b. Forces more thorough writing of profile
    b. Decision: 2 votes to be held
    i. Determine which voting mechanism to use (Borda, Condorcet, etc.)
    ii. Determine which voting method: in-person exclusively or include letter ballot in conjunction with tcon discussion
    c. Action: write up voting mechanism and method and post on wiki. Allow comment section for each. Hold formal vote (simple majority rules) in two weeks.
  3. Discuss/approve modifications to profile proposal form
    a. Discuss effort estimation process
    b. Post on wiki and Include comments section
    i. Helps people focus their interests
    c. Changes to long form only (detailed form)
    i. Profile editor – if editor has not been through the authoring process, they should be guided through the process – name someone as a “mentor”
