    of interest as reported on the Disclosure Questionnaire, which all members of the writing group are required to complete and
    submit. A relationship is considered to be “significant” if (a) the person receives $10 000 or more during any 12-month period,
    or 5% or more of the person’s gross income; or (b) the person owns 5% or more of the voting stock or share of the entity,

    than “significant” under the preceding definition.
