My actions in this direction are based on your email.  But the issue is
three-fold in my understanding (and happy to be corrected if I've made
an invalid assumption):

1.  Reconstitute the committees - the 60 second effort
2.  Review the commmittees - partially started at the last face2face
3.  Re-write Sections 21 and 22 to explictly reflect that sub-committees
are now committees

It was my belief that 3. requires an amendment since Amendment 4 didn't
include those changes.  If the amendment isn't needed then great.  I've
attached the update I proposed.
