Now, that is great news. Thanks for all the effort you've put in on

Clearly, I think, the treasurer needs signature authority and should
probably open the account. I think we should have at least 2 with such
authority. Any officer or trustee can serve for the second (or third
or however many we want).
I don't really want signature authority. But I'll take it if that's
what it takes to move forward. I can even open the account if no one
else wants to, but if so, I'll need the personal information for other
signatories and access to funds to get us started.
