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. -- William L. Thomson Jr. amd64/Java/Trustees Gentoo Foundation
