Re: Proposed amendment to bylaws to allow non-member directors

OK. So you made me feel there was no risk to answer something I didn't want. From my experience (it initially told me I chose something not available....) the Yes/No is the answer to that question which doesn't appear anywhere, and then clicking on it adds it to preferences....

And then the next screen confirms you vote yes or no to the question. So I voted, and hopefully what I wanted ;-)

Thank you for your help.

if you start the voting session from scratch, you just select the option you want to vote for (either yes or no) and that automatically gets added under Preferences, the next section will also show what you voted for in order to confirm your selection.

    Right! But I am unclear on how to get there... so whether I chose
    I get to that final question? Since I can't see what's in
    preferences it
    doesn't seem obvious what the yes/no selection do...
