Dear Amy,

As one of the members of the executive, you can call for elections. As I 
have said before, I'm willing to contribute in any way I can.

If you don't want to call for elections, then the remaining members of 
the executive can take action by invoking article 3.1 of the bylaws:

Any exceptions, accommodations, or alternative arrangements shall be 
decided by a majority vote of the executive and reported as quickly as 
possible the membership. Where practical, such exceptions, 
accommodations, or alternative arrangements shall also be made available 
to all other members.

I'm sure that people will volunteer if you ask. I have already offered, 
but there might be other interested parties.

As Dan already said, we are ready to talk about governance issues in 
September, if nothing has been resolved before then.

In the meantime, you can count on my support with any decisions you and 
other members of the executive make.
