I agree with this. The qualifications for secretary are different than
for being a board member, and we really want someone who we know will do
a great job at handling boring paperwork. Whether they are a board
member or not is secondary.
I'd love to have both Shannon and Miloh on the board. The only concern I
have is that will leave us with an even number of directors, so we'd
have a problem in case of anything that came to a tied vote. Maybe
that's not a problem worth worrying about.
