Although I see council did ratify this, I don't know what to say about it I don't agree with it as a strategy.

Recently we're rethinking the application process in a way that demands accountability from whatever organizations want to make themselves official.

If an organization doesn't want/need our official approval then with this policy we are giving them the right to interpret the principles without our guidance and use our name. As long as they stay off of our radar they are not accountable. The longer they do that, the more likely they are to be tied to their name and to fight us in the event of an inquiry.

I think it's great in theory, but it might cause problems for us. We don't have the manpower to look around for organizations that are interpreting our principles badly, try to get them to change or stop.

Or am I not getting my head around this?
