The Forum may either:
- elect a member to be Chairperson and Deputy Chairperson for a specified period, or
- rotate the Chairperson role – where the Forum opts to rotate the role of Chairperson, the Forum shall elect the Chairperson and Deputy Chairperson at the preceding meeting.
At a meeting of the forum:
- three (voting) members form a quorum
- the Chairperson or, if he or she is not present, the Deputy Chairperson, will preside
- all questions will be decided by a majority of the votes of the members present and
- the Chairperson or, if he or she is not present, the Deputy Chairperson, has a deliberative vote and, in the event of an equality of votes, also has a casting vote.
The forum will meet regularly, at a time determined by the Chairperson and notified to the members, but not less than two times per year.
The Director is responsible for ensuring a representative is, or representatives are, available to carry out secretariat functions for the forum, including preparation of the agenda and meeting minutes.
