Committee Members:
Catherine Kettrick | Seattle, WA, USA
Cathy Madden | Seattle, WA, USA
Marilou Chacey, Thousand Oaks, CA USA
Member/Board Liaison: Marya Spring Cordes

Committee Purpose:  ATI members chose Formal Consensus (developed by C.T. Lawrence Butler and Amy Rothstein) as their means of decision making because they believe its principles align closely with the principles of the Alexander Technique. The Formal Consensus Process Committee (FCPC) members are trained in Formal Consensus. They work closely with the Agenda Planning Committee to plan and help facilitate the Annual General Meeting held at the ATI Annual Conference.  FCPC trains new facilitators, and helps guide ATI members in understanding Formal Consensus so they can fully participate in the business of ATI.
