All of us owe a debt of gratitute to you for taking the time and
trouble to research the issues and informing the members of the gravity and
potential future problems with the proposed changes in bylaws and also
for suggesting the setting up of a commission to look into the bylaws.

It is very surprising that no lodge was consulted. I wonder why no one
who was involved in the revision and approval of bylaws thought it wise
to get some feedback from the lodges. After all these changes are
supposed to protect the lodges. Much good can come out of such
consultation. Even now it is not too late to put the whole revision in

Does anyone know when the bylaws committee was appointed and what are
the credentials - professional or otherwise of the committee member? Has
any one seen the report of the bylaws committee?
