  1. Do extensive revisions to an entire set of existing Bylaws (originally adopted by majority vote) constitute an "amendment" (requiring 2/3 vote)? The current provisions on (original) adoption & amendment are: "SECTION 1. Adoption. An affirmative vote of the majority attending the meeting of the corporation at which these By-Laws are considered shall be required for their adoption, and they shall become effective immediately upon adoption. SECTION 2. Amendments. Amendments may be proposed either by a majority of the Board or by a petition of 20 members of the Corporation. Proposed amendments must be submitted to the membership at least 45 days in advance of a called meeting or at least 30 days before the annual meeting. Amendments shall be adopted upon a two-thirds majority vote of the membership at that meeting, which shall become effective at the close of the meeting at which it is adopted. SECTION 3: A simple majority of those voting shall be competent to decide all matters except amendments to this document. "
