    There is very little support for this but I will include both in the meeting as a straw poll. If the voting members support it then it can be implemented as a formal vote at the next quarterly meeting or at a special meeting depending on the NFP act rules governing such a question.

    After 10 years as rating auditor I plan to step down this year. I will offer any help or advice requested by my successor until they are comfortable in the position.

    Can we get a summary somewhere on this CFC Forum of, at the least, the new (2021-22) CFC Executive, including those who were acclaimed (rather than elected)? I would assume, for example, that Fred McKim was acclaimed as Treasurer for the coming year, but I haven't seen anything stating this plainly, unless I have missed it.
