My staff wishes to bring to Council for discussion, a proposed change to the OWbN Administrative Bylaws. The summary of our discussions is that the staff of Tampa believes that the Exec and administrative "wing" of the org should be separate from the genre-creating and genre-enforcing part of the org. 
 
The change would be to section 2 of the Administrative Bylaws, titled: "Council."
 
That section currently reads:
 
A. The Council of One World by Night is considered the governing body of the network and shall consist of:
i. One (1) voting representative from each full member chronicle. A voting representative may serve as a voting representative for only one full member chronicle at a time.
ii. The Head Coordinator and Assistant Head Coordinators who shall hold one (1) vote each. They may not hold any other votes on the Council, such as being the Council representative of a chronicle.
1. The votes able to be cast by the Executive Team (Head Coordinator and Assistant Head Coordinators) is expected to be used in the capacity of their administrative duties. Reference Administrative Bylaw 4.B.viii for limitations to this during the Coordinator Election Process.
B. All administrative and Genre Coordinators may be present on the Council in order to provide information and input to the Council, and on the ST list to communicate directly with member chronicles.
i. They are considered to be non-voting members of Council, unless otherwise stated in the Coordinator bylaws.
ii. All administrative and Genre Coordinators may be present at meetings of Council, should they occur.
 
The proposed changes are below, in RED:
