    I wish all the proposals, and rebuttals, and ballots had all gone out as one e-mail. The way this has been presented has been very confusing. I believe I also should have been given an opportunity to rebut Jace’s statement before this went out.

    I just want to cite one of many, basic examples that went into my decision to make this proposal::
    In Maryland several years ago, a proposal was made by then President elect to simply be able to pay the regular bills without having to get a second signature. The By-Laws state that any bill over $1000 requires two signatures. Difficult to do when the Board lives all over the country. About half way through the meeting many of the delegates, for completely unrelated reasons, left. The proposal, which was completely ordinary and necessary to conduct the business of the club, was defeated due to a lack of a 2/3 majority.

    Its that simple. The Organization needs to be able to function efficiently and get business done. Sometimes, change is progress!
