Bylaws committee

  • pretty close to putting out the current DRC version for review
  • Need to think about how it works with existing bylaws. Proposed bylaws address the DRC, but need a short-term solution t
    • Possibly ask DRC to make a suggestion to board + 1, which will then approve or reject the proposed solution
      • Yep, that sounds good.
