I firmly believe officers should be allowed signatories as well as trustees. So far as I know, that's how almost all corporations work. Day to day work is under the direction of the officers. (As an example, I looked at one bank --- Bank of America --- and initially they wanted to know about one of three officers (Pres, VP, Treasurer) and would have wanted a letter from the Secretary.) I have no idea what Capital One will want --- William does, though.
