[NA-Discuss] WTF?

Hi all,
I do not believe that Beau put in in an SOI to become the "vote" of the unaffilated members nor do I believe that they voted for him to be their "voice".   This is why we entrenched this position into the changes to the RoP.  We need to have more formal votes for this position.  I do not believe that our RoP gave a vote to the unaffiliated voice prior to the vote so this is now in force but was not before.
That is my understanding of it, anyways.

Beau, I don't know why it was not counted and will check into it. If you
participated in the vote then your vote counts and is part of the quorum. I
apologize on behalf of the process that may have inadvertently missed your

Of course, as you and I both know, the purpose of this vote was to codify
and formalize what had until been an informal and not-fully-recognised role
of unaffiliated members and their representatives within NARALO and
