I don't see any requirement for Officers or Committee Members (to use 
the prescribed terms) to be *voting* members.  True, Associates can't 
vote at General meetings, but I think they can sit on the Committee.

Sorry to press the point: Were those changes actually sent in a postal 
ballot?  The 2005 Returning Officer would be the person to confirm 
this.  Who was it?  Can we have an authoritative answer?  In the absence 
of that, and in view of the fact that the Constitution published on the 
web does not incorporate those changes, I think that the published 
Constitution must stand.
