Dude. You're killing me here.
Yeah, let's wait more, 'cause maybe then this Maker thing will finally die a natural death, so everybody can breathe a sigh of relief & say "whew THAT was close"? No. That ain't right.
Compromise Idea: we'll be working on the By-Laws first anyway, tomorrow night. And there's already language in there, relating to the first-time elections, which will ONLY be relevant to the first elections (with that "self-destruct" clause). How about we make an edit to that part, saying essentially, first term for elected Board members will last only 1 year (or even shorter?) as opposed to 2. Thereafter, 2-year terms of office between elections will be the norm.
That will allow us to get people in place on schedule, and get the GROUP formally established (incorporated as cooperative nonprofit, etc). It will also give us real time to look & plan ahead, WHILE we're actually accomplishing things & moving forward with the group's goals.
Can you live with that?
