Motion from NancyD re Op applications

Motion: 

To remove: "Those who live in other time zones like Europe, or those who have to work at night, may apply for Op by written letter to be read in the business meeting. (5/9/09) " from the Requirement for Operators guidelines.

Motivation:

The group has, since the date of that 2009 addition, instituted quarterly business meetings at Noon Eastern US time to specifically accommodate times zones like Europe & those who work at night. A member wishing to apply to become an Op now has ample opportunity to present themselves to the membership at any business meeting. Also, this statement is somewhat vague & has become open to personal interpretation. As with any motion presented at a business meeting, the applicant or proposer should be present to offer their application or motion & answer questions from the group.
