Dear Ms. Freud,

Thank you for the prompt response and the information.

It is not necessary to send me copies of the notices published in Michigan
Living, but I would appreciate receiving a copy of the bylaws.

Will there be an election of Directors next year, as well?

If I wished to circulate a petition, what provision is there allowing me access
to contact information of members, in order to do that?

Is there a limit on the length of time a petition may be circulated?

Perhaps the bylaws will answer these questions.

Has an outsider ever run for Director?

Thanks for your help.

Matt Abel
