Hi all, Bruce:
Is this just a semantic difference or is it substantive?
That is, I always assumed the two terms to be synonyms - basically the same
Does the board wish to distinguish between people who watch only
(observers) and those who watch and can offer input (participants), due to
a fear that the latter might expand into deliberating on their input too?

> Following on from the recent email exchange to clarify the Board’s
> concerns on Recommendation 9, the Board notes that many of its concerns can
> be addressed during implementation and the development of Operational
> Standards. The Board has a particular concern with two paragraphs in the
> most recent version.
> At paragraph 54, the Board does not support the language that states
> “Review Teams are established to include both a limited number of members
> and an open number of participants.” The Board would support this language
> if it read “Review Teams are established to include both a limited number
> of members and an open number of observers.” The Board does not agree with
> a Bylaws-mandated inclusion of “participants” in these Review Teams. The
> Review Team composition is defined and limited because of the specificity
> of the review. Requiring open participation is not consistent with this
> Similarly, the statement at Paragraph 57 that the Review Team would first
> try to find consensus among “participants”, and only if that is not
> successful, seek consensus among members. Consensus polling should only be
> among the Review Team members. The Board does not support maintaining “if
> consensus cannot be reached among the participants” at the beginning of
> that paragraph.
