The NDCA Ethics Statement failed to receive 60% approval of the membership body.  At the time elections were closed, the NDCA had 122 members.  74 "yes" votes were needed to pass.  

32 members did vote in the process.  Of those that did choose to vote, 28 voted yes and 4 voted no.

We will be starting a discussion the NDCA listserv about possible amendments to the document (if the body feels like a statement is necessary) and a discussion about the 60% threshold.  The discussion will just be some informal dialogue about how the membership wishes to proceed on this issue (or to proceed at all).
