Okey Dokey, I can take a stab at your request.

I would be in favor of this:

IF the by-laws can be interpreted to allow for a "hiatus" until the guy or
gal that is unreachable is back in due form, that would be great. i.e. He
or she can be allowed to remain a tu, but does not have their non-voting
participation held against them or US, because we do not include them in
the total number of expected voting tu s I think we have a good basis for
a nice  organization. AND the quorum numbers and such needed for the
voting process will be usable again without banishing people that are
having some sort of problems we can only guess at.

IF the by-laws cannot or will not be interpreted this way, then I suggest
we change them so that we can have inactive tu s without removing them

Anyways, that is my opinion.

Very best regards;

Bob Finch
