  1. One of the resigning members of the board has agreed to come for next month's meeting so this can be resolved. We shall see if they do indeed attend. Failing this, it appears the only resolution is to have the officers (not BOD) call a special membership meeting or wait for the November general membership meeting and elect new BOD members.
