Four years after Initiatives first appear on the ballot, the Electorate shall have an opportunity to vote for IQA Members Rewards who were seated between four and six years previously had performed. The bonus shall be based on the overall quality and results (not the total number of Candidate Initiatives) of the Initiatives that they selected and were adopted four years ago. Each Voter shall select a bonus amount. The bonuses shall range from zero to one-third of the per-diems originally paid in increments of tenths and shall correspond to 11 grades from D to A+. These awards shall be averaged over all votes cast. Bonuses shall be distributed by the current IQA on the basis of the number of days each Member attended regular IQA sessions in that two-year period-note that about half the Members will receive bonuses from two periods.
