CONSER Individual Memberships

Among the recommendations made in the Draft Report on the Future of Bibliographic Control was 1.2.3. "Expand number of PCC participants." I've recently seen a few references to CONSER's pilot "individual member," a cataloger from a CONSER institution who moved to a non-CONSER library. Could individual memberships be a way to expand CONSER participation to skilled catalogers in institutions unable to qualify for CONSER membership? In early November, the PCC Policy Committee met and information on the pilot project can be found in the agenda published on the PCC home page (see Document 5 on pages 10-11). Unfortunately, I was unable to locate any publicly available minutes for this meeting.
