    AND
    craft the amendment to the bylaws in the section of the officers by defining the Women's coordinator with duties and add "shall be a director".

    If you'll do that fast, you'll be on the mercy of the Chair on the procedural matters.

    There would be some serious questions/discussions - the motion itself; and like if that would pass, does the current Women's coordinator become the director by default? When shall the election be called? etc etc.
    Michael presented both of these ideas as discussion items possibly to be included in the AGM as motions. There was no talk of making it a motion in this meeting. As you know motions need three weeks notice.

We do not need more people on the board just to have more people on the board. We need more people on the board who are working and contributing and don't see their role as simple obstruction of every effort.
    I see the implication being that a woman should be in charge of coordinating the women. I guess I'm more of an optimist than you?

    If you make that amendment to this motion I will second it.

    Vlad is right - I presented both these ideas as discussion items to be included in the AGM as Motions for voting.
    Any comments or suggestions are welcome!
    Thanks,

    I dunno folks, this is fatiguing. We keep hearing about some current Executive member not doing this or that, or blocking this or that. Then at our recent Special Meeting, we had a questionably overseen expansion of our Executive to an even number. And now we're considering another expansion, with gender conditionality?

    If I may suggest, let's take a step back, consolidate our Executive in time for the AGM, and if there's a motion, make it in time, or else refrain from "side ideas"?!
