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

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.
