Digitally Sign the Partner Program Agreement, and pledge the IP to open source.

STEP 2: NOMINATIONS

Nomination of the Partner member, a representative of the Partner and the Partner Project(if any) goes through a Council Vote. This generally takes place on its own, once the Vote is called for, based on supporting documentation.
Members of the proposed organisation observe the vote & remarks from Council members.
This step generally takes 72 hours to account for the time zone differences, detailed review of the partner project literature.

STEP 3: QUORUM

If the quorum is achieved in favour of the resolution, and a decision is in favour of the addition, the proposed organisation becomes a "Serenity" partner.
Signed agreement is shared back with the Partner. Executive Council or the Independent Board member may ratify the Representative appointment, and add the organisation into the Serenity Partner Member registry.

PUBLIC NOTICE: If the quorum is not achieved in favour of the resolution, please collect feedback. The process can be initiated again after a cooling period of 6 months.
