I see no problem with that. All officers of the company obviously have
a duty to respect the privacy of members, I trust the board to fulfil
that duty.

Has anyone asked Paypal about this? We aren't the only charity with a
paypal account, and it is standard practice for charities to require
multiple signatures for transactions, so we can't be the first people
to have this problem.
