Hi All,

I wanted to point out the Special Resolution for the general meeting(1), so
it isn't a surprise to anyone when the ballots come out. The text is as
follows:

That the articles of association of the Company shall be modified by adding
article 24(a) stating
The fees payable by a corporation are set by the board and may be changed
with 60 days notice to the membership and associate membership.

The reasoning behind this is so the board can set the fees for the
corporate membership this gives us more flexible as we build out that
program. The main thought behind not letting the board set fees for
membership and associate membership (or by any other way) is so that people
can't be priced out of voting. Since corporations can't vote this isn't so
much an issue.

Best,

-Kate
