What the committee does:
The Congress of Grottos (COG) is an advisory body that meets yearly at the NSS Convention where representatives of NSS Internal Organizations (IOs) discuss and vote on issues of concern to the IOs and NSS members. The Congress reports to the President who is responsible for bringing resolutions passed by the Congress to the Board of Governors.
Representation in the Congress is based on the number of NSS Members claiming primary affiliation with the IO as recorded in the NSS membership database. Unaffiliated NSS members may form an ad-hoc group to be represented at the COG meeting. Issues are solicited from IOs and from all NSS members. Thus, the range of subjects is limited only by the interests of members.
Issues may be submitted to the COG chair at email@example.com by a published deadline. Issues may also be introduced during the Congress following discussion of items submitted by the Call for Issues deadline.
