Paul, thanks for the update!
Moving the Board meeting one week out fits me very
well. I am traveling on trains almost all evening
today, so it would be hard for me to attend any calls.

Thanks very much

 We are embarking on the final steps of updating our Bylaws.  These steps are:
  Adopt the draft of the Bylaws and advance to the next step
OFA Legal Counsel Review
Promoter Member Organization Review
Final Adoption
 The objective is to complete this by the December Board meeting on 12/19/2019.
 Attached are the minutes from yesterday’s OFA XWG meeting.  I am sending them directly to you because they contain important information related to the Bylaws; specifically the detailed timeline:
   17 October 2019---XWG Discussion and Review
24 October 2019---Board Approval of Draft Document 
7 November 2019 (Tentative)---OFA Legal Review complete
 7 November 2019 (Tentative)---Resulting Edits
 5 December (Tentative)---Member Review ends
 5 December (Tentative)---Resulting Edits
 19 December (Tentative)---Final Board Approval
 PLEASE NOTE:  The October Board Meeting is delayed by one week until OCTOBER 24th to allow folks time to read and comment on the draft Bylaws.  Accordingly, next Thursday’s meeting (October 17th) will be an  XWG meeting devoted to beginning discussion any issues you may have with the draft.
 Notice the process to which we’ve agreed:  The vote currently scheduled for OCTOBER 24th is to allow us to advance the DRAFT to legal and membership reviews. This is NOT the final vote.  Following the October 24th  vote, there will be a review by the OFA’s legal counsel, and a membership review.  
 The schedule shown allows two weeks for OFA legal counsel review, and one month for membership review.  The membership review should include whatever internal review each member deems necessary, including any internal legal review.
 I have attached a copy of the draft Bylaws document here for your convenience.  It can also be found on the OFA website at:
