A sufficient number of interested persons have come forward to form the
group but it has yet to meet. Those who have come forward are a mixture of
members and non members from various locations around the world which is
good. When the group does meet the discussions and any proposals will be
fully reported. Any change in the Articles requires a vote of the
membership, so the purpose of the working group is not to make any change
but to recommend what might be changed and the suggested wording. It will be
up to the membership to decide if they want the changes or not.
