Re: [steering-discuss] grammar mistake in the bylaws


Hi :)
I wouldn't worry about it.  It's fine in "business speak".  If you do change it 
then it needs to be more like ... 

Each organization *can appoint* a single representative to the Advisory Board 
based on a yearly fee to be determined by the BoD.
The problem then is that it's passive and business communications prefer things 
to sound active.  Trying to make it perfect would make it excessively long 
without gaining anything.  It makes sense enough as it is :)
Regards from
Tom :)

Subject: [steering-discuss] grammar mistake in the bylaws

Hello,

is there a slight grammar mistake in the bylaws? They read

Each organization *appointing* a single representative to the Advisory Board 
based on a yearly fee to be determined by the BoD.

but should rather be

Each organization *appoints* a single representative to the Advisory Board based 
on a yearly fee to be determined by the BoD.

Or am I mistaken?

Florian
