New Articles of Incorporation and Bylaws
by Leslie Golden

Carol Brittain, an attorney and OWA member, has filed the New Articles of Incorporation and Bylaws to comply with the law while leaving our historical horizontal structure unchanged. A steering committee (of five) is to act as “board of directors” with each person serving a two year term. The three officers - president, secretary and treasurer (required by the state) are subordinate to and serving at the pleasure and discretion of the Steering Committee. We will refer to them as “OWA officers” and they are equal in responsibility and authority.

We are grateful to Carol Brittain for her time and energy working on behalf of OWA to make our organization meet the legal requirements.
