William,

The order of precedence is the laws of New Mexico, both statue and case 
law, then the Articles of Incorporation, then the bylaws of the 
Foundation.

While its unlikely that the state would use our own bylaws against us, 
Foundation members can.

From the Articles 

9.  Article VIII

Board of Trustees

The number of trustees of the Corporation shall be not less than three 
or more than twenty-one. The initial Board of Trustees shall consist of 
thirteen persons. Thereafter, the Board of Trustees shall consist of 
such number of persons, not Less than three, as shall be fixed by the 
Bylaws.

So we are fine with five trustees.
