Senators are expected to use their
best efforts to attend meetings of the Senate, including the Senate Report. A
Senator who will be absent from several meetings must notify the Secretary, so
that the Alternate for that position may be asked to attend in place of the absent
Senator. If there is no Alternate, the Nomination and Election Committee will
appoint an Interim Alternate from the Senator's constituency.
If a Senator
misses three consecutive meetings and does not inform the Secretary, the Committee
will immediately replace the Senator with the Alternate. If there is no Alternate,
the Committee will hold a new election for that position.
