After a conversation with Chuck and me, Liz and Dan produced the  
following memo on the issues involved in proxy voting.  I would like  
to suggest that we discuss the issues in this memo on the list and  in  
an upcoming meeting after which, if the Council wishes to proceed with  
a by-laws change we form a small drafting team to produce a  
recommended change that we could vote on in council and forward to the  
Board for consideration.

As a point of information, I asked Glen to give us the figures for  
attendance comparing attendance while we were still using proxy voting  
with the period once we no longer had proxy voting.  My reason for  
requesting this was to deal with the question of whether having proxy  
voting affects attendance.  Once I have these figures, I will forward  
them on to the group.

My thanks to Liz, Dan and Glen for their work on this issue.
