    appropriate organizational groups for their follow-up and action. He reported that the Board had passed a motion of the SPC modifying the billing of NERC and

Richard Spring reported on the SPC matters; Michael Desselle provided an update on staff activities, and Carl Monroe reported on the MOPC efforts. With respect to MOPC efficiency, a number of suggestions were offered. Phyllis Bernard suggested that working groups provide summaries of concerns expressed during their deliberations, including a record of abstentions and no votes with supporting rationale. Visual mapping was discussed as a meeting facilitation tool. There was also discussion about the power of a staff-developed strawman and shuttle diplomacy to be more effective. The group discussed a suggestion to engage in limited but comprehensive discussions prior to the assignment of an issue to working groups. Finally, suggestions to expand the length of MOPC meetings and the inclusion of the CAWG in the chairs and secretaries pre-MOPC preparation meeting were offered. An action item was noted to incorporate the thinking from the Organizational Effectiveness discussions into the SPP structure. The action plan was revised with these status developments (Organizational Effectiveness Action Plan Attachment 5).
