Clarifications and opinions:
Article 3, Section 1B: I am guessing that the difference between a
Volunteer Active Member and a Contributing Active Member is the
Volunteer Active Member has not applied for membership and has not paid
annual dues. This should be said explicitly in 3B; it should not be
Article 3, Section 1D: "Individuals who contribute substantial
amounts..." of money? of code? of data? technical support? This should
be said explicitly in 3D; it should not be simply implied.
Article 3, Section 1E: IMHO, Corporate Memberships should not be a part
Article 3, Section 1F: "a significant contribution"..of money? code?
data? technical support? Also, if an Honorary Member cannot hold office
or vote, what's the point?
Article 4, Section 2.1: IMHO, rules and regulations of voting procedures
should never be left to a Board of Trustees. At least the essential
aspects should be laid out in the Bylaws.
Article 4, Section 2.3: IMHO, the interim Member Representative should
be elected by the members, not appointed by the Trustees.
Article 5, Section 5: IMHO, it should be added that the treasurer
perform and publish an annual audit.
