Decision Date: 03/24/2016
Decision: The ERG Committee voted to send the proposal to the SEC for review.
Actions: On April 12, 2011 the ERG Committee received the Plan of Organization from MFRI. At their April 27, 2011 meeting the committee reviewed comments and suggestions provided by committee members prior to the meeting. The committee agreed to condense the comments into one document and returned it to MFRI.

In Fall 2015, the ERG Committee received a revised version of the Plan. After discussion with the MFRI representatives and in the committee meetings, the committee voted to forward the revised Plan to the SEC for review.

In fall 2013, the ERG Committee communicated with MFRI on the status of its revisions. MFRI noted that it was in the process of reviewing the revisions. It will revise the Plan and resubmit an amended version to ERG during the 2013-2014 academic year.

MFRI submitted a Plan for review in fall 2014. The ERG Committee reviewed the Plan and drafted questions and comments for MFRI related to the Plan. In December 2014, the ERG Committee sent its comments to MFRI and invited a representative to an upcoming meeting to discuss the Plan.

In January 2015, the ERG Committee met with a representative of MFRI and discussed the Plan. The committee and the representative agreed on changes in the Plan, and the representative agreed to work on incorporating language into the Plan.

MFRI submitted a revised Plan in January 2016. The ERG Committee worked with a representative of the Institute to ensure all concerns were addressed. After discussion of all aspects of the Plan, on March 2, 2016, the ERG Committee voted to approve the Plan contingent on MFRI's approval of a few minor amendments. The MFRI Unit Assembly reviewed the amendments and accepted them with a positive vote to approve the revised Plan in late March, 2016.
