The following motion is being proposed to add explicitly many of
things that Methods Committee actually does or should do into its
Terms of Reference:

That the existing Rule 16(iv) (Terms of Reference of the Methods
Committee) be replaced by the following:

“To provide and maintain the Council's definitions and requirements
for change ringing, including methods, calls, and performances, and to
consider and advise on all questions arising from their
interpretation; to compile and maintain a library of all named methods
with classification and appropriate references, and to maintain a
record of historic method names; to commission tools and publications
that aid in the understanding and analysis of methods; to adjudicate
on any conflicts that occur in method naming, and to request
alternative names for methods that may be considered inappropriate; to
facilitate the creation and maintenance of standards for the
electronic interchange of methods; to promote an interest in technical
and theoretical aspects of ringing to ringers at large.”

Proposed on behalf of the Methods Committee by Peter Niblett
(Winchester and Portsmouth Diocesan Guild) and seconded by Mark Davies
(Gloucester and Bristol Diocesan Association).
