That's fine I didn't even bother asking in detail about having out of
country officers or trustees on file. It's likely best we just avoid
that entirely, till we need to cross that bridge.

Well our treasurer has to have authority. Not sure if we want to require
President or VP as well. I don't see a point to having secretary on
file. We might keep 1-2 trustees on file as a backup. That way someone
can help add/remove people in the absence of others.

The roles should be split. Trustees should oversee the officers.
Officers make the will of the trustees happen. They do not think or act
on their own. Trustees rarely act, but pass their will on to the
officers to make it happen.

At least that's my take.
