2. An opportunity to attend a meeting of the FRCC as an observer, to meet the FRCC members and to gain insights into how the Committee operates. An initial orientation can be provided at this stage.

3. If there is mutual interest to proceed, the FRCC may make a formal appointment to the position of Committee Member for an initial term of one year. This provides an opportunity for periodic discussions and feedback with the Chair.
