To address the organizational structure and relationship between
Trustees and Officers as I see it. Again trustees decide, officers act,
and cannot decide or act without trustees decision.

That is trustees meet, vote, and decide on a course of action. Which is
then passed down to the officers to enact. The officers will only act to
the will of the trustees, and/or their intended roles. Secretary
recording say meeting logs, providing summaries, etc.

Right now this is convoluted because of the dual role aspect. But we are
still re-creating and fixing the broken foundation.
