Hi Anne, The Foundation has come around that idea in 2006/2007 until 2012.  In that period is full voting member of the Audit Committee, later joined by a few others. On October 26nd, 2012 the Board passed a resolution to change the charter of the Audit Committee.  Among other things, outsiders in the committee lost their voting rights. That is something that happened after I left the Audit Committee. I don't know why the voting rights where removed.
