After rereading the bylaws I now see that the don't
preclude the treasurer from being someone outside the
Board of Trustees. Although I still think it would be
good if the treasurer was also on the board.
Is that quite true? It reads:
Section 1. COMPOSITION OF BOARD. The Board of Trustees shall elect
from among its members a Chair, Vice Chair, Executive Secretary and
Treasurer. These officers shall be elected for one year terms of
office by majority vote of the Board and may be re-elected at the
expiration of their term. Any officer may be removed at any time for
cause or without cause by an affirmative vote of a majority of the
whole Board of Trustees.
"Elect from its members" seems to imply members of the Board of Trustees.
In either case, Mav has been enthusiastic, knowledgable and
responsible in the role, and something that he has given his time to.
We would all do well to have him oversee financial matters however the
community or the Board decide that role should be defined.
