The place of incorporation will determine the fundamental requirements for compliance with law.

The place of incorporation will determine the fundamental requirements for compliance with law.

At this point, I'm thinking PA, but I'd be open to other places. I think we've agreed, though, on organising in the US.

This will be a good time to start a Second Draft of the bylaws as a separate document. This will permit us to leave the initial Draft open for comments and preserve the content for future reference and, at the same time, prepare the groundwork for a productive discussion in our next meeting. Over the next few days, I will begin a Second Draft for critical review and comments to assure that it captures the comments on the initial Draft and the insights from today's meeting.
