Re: Oceania Digest, Vol 8, Issue 27

+1 for John's suggestions, in spirit of maximal potential openness, and reflecting on the needs to be different than stock standard OSGEO  rules due to all the reasons that Ed formulated so beautifully.
I also like the idea of "Provisional" Members ( a common thing in many clubs), whether this is for 3 months, or a year. The fasttrack may be a nice option for, say, someone who is straight away involved in organising the next instalment of the conference (of course, not as chair or lead, but a local organiser).

Let's get this wrapped up! (

    Sorry Bruce, I'm confused. You say you can live with a single membership
    class which is the question at hand, but you're -1?
   
    Re: a process to remove directors, we are governed by the Corporations Act

    appropriate way to address this problem.

    Hi, I was thinking along similar lines to Robert: people sign
    themselves up and become "Provisional" Members.  By default their
    membership is accepted after a set period of time.  I thought in some
    cases the board may want to fast track membership for someone who is
    making an obvious contribution to the community, but it is probably
    better to say this is a set period which allows for people to raise
    any concerns with a prospective member, and stick to it.
   
    Regards,
    Alister

If there's some sudden influx then the org has 3 months to change the rules/sort it out. eg. InternetNZ has this (S3.6). Limiting officers to 2 per company might be sane as well. But I could happily live without any protection as well.
