That looks great to me... I would specify expulsion of member by majority vote, as there is no method in the bylaws now

Great!

You must register in the New Register Thread in order to become an official caucus member, though.

You can become an honorary member of the caucus. According to the first draft of the bylaws that TJ has written and which I approve of, you'll have the same rights as ordinary members.

Updated to address Clarence’s concern. Does anyone else have issues with it?

All that’s left to do now is the platform and ratifying everything.

Quote
Membership
1.   In accordance with the Caucus Infrastructure and Formation Act, all members registered with the RG shall be granted membership in the Right to Life Caucus.
2.   For registered members, the caucus’s endorsement will appear on the ballot as per Atlasian Law.
3.   Additional citizens who are barred from recognized membership under Atlasian Law may request to join the Right to Life Caucus and be granted “honorary membership”.
4.   Honorary members will be afforded the same rights and privaliges within the caucus as registered members.
5.   Honorary members will be afforded the caucus’s endorsement without a vote.
6.   A member, either registered or honorary, may be expelled from the caucus by a majority vote if that person behaves in such a way as to the detriment of the caucus.
Leadership
1.   The caucus leadership shall consist of two offices: chairman and vice chairman.
2.   The chairman is the executive leader of the caucus, chief spokesman, and presides over the caucus convention.
3.   The chairman and vice chairman will be elected every four months by public IRV votes within the thread of the caucus thread. The chairman and vice chairman elections shall occur in April, August, and December.
4.   The vice chairman assists the chairman in providing executive leadership. The vice-chairman becomes chairman in the event of a vacancy.
5.   The chairman and vice chairman must be members of the caucus, either registered or honorary.
Convention
1.   A convention will be called by the chairman one week before every regularly scheduled federal election.
2.   At a convention, members may propose amendments to the bylaws and platform. These amendments are adopted if they pass with a majority vote.
3.   Candidates not in the caucus may petition for the caucus’s endorsement for an upcoming election. Members of the caucus also may move to endorse candidates. Members, whether registered or honorary, are automatically granted endorsement, but all other endorsements must pass by a majority vote.
4.   A member of the caucus may call a vote of no confidence in the leadership of either the chairman or vice chairman. If the vote receives a majority, an election is held to fill the executive office in question.

I also want to say that I beleive we are closest to what a caucus actually is... sure you have things like the Republican STudy Committee, but most caucuses in Congress are based on issues... as ours is. We aren't a moderate or liberal or conservative caucus, we are geared towards fighting for an issue that unites all ideologies to fight for... I am proud of this caucus!
