Hi another ballot question.
If we are unable to attend should we write in a vote on the proposed by law change?
Was it omited on the ballot in the Current in an oversight or is there some
restriction on voting those changes only in person? It has been alot of years since
I've read the bylaws.
Also what is the reason behind increasing the number on the board? When would the
change be implimented if passed and how would those people be choosen? Any Board
members want to respond? Ann R.D.
