  1. As the region 9, there are two people nominated Keneth and Tapas, they have my vote.

  2. Members should carefully review the constitutional amendments. There are some pretty sweeping changes. I would like to see more debate pro and con about these amendments. A lot has happened in the world since these were proposed.

  3. I would like more detail about the reasoning behind allowing Affiliate members to vote. I don’t agree with this.
