OGPAF is it the bylaws?
OGPAF the ‘term’
Bosun Well we need to fix up the bylaws and clean up our act.
Sayyida OGPAF, the current election was for a need becuase liz left
Pirate_Joe Since we have no one stepping forward we may as well make it one year.
OGPAF sounds good
Bosun If the bylaws don’t have date.
Sayyida to my memory they do not
Bosun Something we should fix as well.

Sayyida so we are a co-op

Bosun 1 member for each state, DC, and the territories – all equal.
Sayyida so each gets a vote as long as they are active correct?
