Dear Chapters Committee,

I looked a little on the chapters commitee page (like http://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Chapters_committee/News) and found that you are already 5 people and 2 advisors. Adding another 3 people would make it 8. But I had difficulties to figure out what you really do. 

From the job description I can figure out the task would be "read boring bylaw documents", and "learn about different legal systems" ... which is a more educational thing than doing real work i guess.

From the URLs you provided one could make out that "write boring and unnecessary complicated rules and processes" would be also a task.

Could you shed some light on what the Chapters Committee can bring to this world please?

Kind regards,
