Why drop the suggested minimum of 4?  Does this mean a one-man
tech-ctte would be fine?

What should happen in a tie of service length?

Is it necessary to specify the 8 in more than one place?

Is that healthy?  Having a minimum break is pretty common on other
groups and might help keep things fresh.

I don't think that makes sense.  s/might/may/ or s/might/can/ please.

I'd also s/eight// because there seems no need to repeat the maximum
size and it could make future amendments smaller.

term lengths between appointments, FWIW.
