Actually, Matthew Wilcox pointed out on irc this morning that there is
procedure in place for new proposals:
128. Amendment of By-Laws. The by-laws of OCLUG may be repealed or
amended by by-laws enacted by a majority of the Directors at a meeting
of the Board and sanctioned by an affirmative vote of at least
two-thirds of the members at a meeting duly called for the purpose
of considering the said by-law. [Act (s. 129 (2)) (s. 129 (3))]
So first the Board has to approve the change with a majority vote, then
the membership has to vote a 2/3 majority.
If you think that this proposal has merit then I would encourage you
to bring it before the board at their next meeting. There is a Board
meeting agenda on the oclug wiki near the top of the page.
