   Metrics-as part of our Chapter paperwork we had to compile metrics for
   our activities. SE and Rebecca calculated the metrics for all of our
   events. The information can be seen here


   Survey-Rebecca made some more changes to the survey. It has gone out to
   the working group for consultation.

   By-Laws-We completed the review of the by-laws. Here are the changes to
   the second half:

      Change ‘in person’ to ‘present’. Define what ‘presen’ means-can be
      virtual vis Hangouts, Skype, ect.

      Article 26-’registered letter’ for notification to be changed to some
      digital format, perhaps on Meta Wiki.

      Article 28-’signed by 1/20th’-some digital format again, perhaps Meta

      Article 33-take out typo ‘or a member or joined a driver’.

      Article 34-change ‘registered office’ to ‘mailing list’.

Once the changes are made the by-laws will be sent out to the working group
for a 1 week review. They will then be sent out on the mailing list for a 3
week consultation period.
