Hi Kirk,

I have a couple of comments:

1.1. I'm not sure about the last sentence; I believe Ben proposed an 
edit to it as well. I certainly take your point that the initial version 
of the Bylaws should simply be codifying what we do already, but I'd 
suggest that "text someone wrote for the website" (which is where these 
two paras are from) is in a different category to "text adopted by the 
Forum as a ballot". So I would support you accepting Ben's edit in this 

4.1. "filled by Forum Members". Members are companies or organizations; 
would "filled by Member representatives" be better? I note that in the 
definition section, the definition of Member contains a deliberate 
reference to the ambiguity between the organization and the individual. 
This 'solves' the problem, but leads to ambiguity. Would it not make 
more sense to have two terms: "Member" for the org and "Member 
representative" for the person, and use them consistently throughout?

Hope that helps,
