When we Incorporated under Arizona Law, the "Board of Directors" was inclusive of the officers.  In along about 2009, our Board went from having 5 Directors to having 7.

When we became a 501(c)3 nonprofit, Federal Law defines the Board of Directors as being the seven Directors, who represent the "Shareholders" while the Officers represent the "Management."  European Boards of Directors represent the "Employees" instead.  We have neither shareholders or employees, so our Board represents the membership.

My thanks to Steve Bowen, N7CPU for enlightening me with that piece of knowledge.  Accordingly, I have reorganized the headings on this list.
