Gente, segue íntegra da resposta do ChapCom. Neste momento de revisão do estatuto pelo ChapCom, a tradução não precisa de ser juramentada.

Então temos dois trabalhos: traduzir o estatuto e responder aquelas perguntas. O Maurício já se ofereceu para ajudar na tradução, que vai começar imediatamente lá na[1] Quem mais quiser ajudar, é só chegar. Duas semanas parece razoável para vocês? Poderíamos então estabelecer 30 de novembro como data limite para envio das respostas (em inglês) e envio do estatuto (traduzido) para o ChapCom?

Hi Castelo,

Just to answer you quickly on the first question: we generally prefer
a volunteer made translation of the bylaws (because they tend to be
free and are of good enough quality to understand and review the
issues relevant to us), so that is what I would recommend to you.

Before we as the Chapters Committee would start reviewing the bylaws,
we would need to get some more information as you say: both some
general info[1] and the specifics related to your special situation.
Feel free to send the answers to me, to Lodewijk
<> who's been in initial contact with
Beria, or to the general address of the Committee
<>. (Unfortunately, it may take
a bit of time to receive an answer especially if you have questions
that require an internal discussion among ourselves, so please don't
be discouraged if we are slow to respond - and feel free to send me a
personal reminder to speed things up.)

Best regards,
Chapters Committee

- I think Beria shared these questions with you, I am not sure I have
seen the answers to it yet
