Hi Owen,

In the interest of good governance and proper respect of process and
structure, I believe that the ability to hire and fire the CEO should
remain solely with the Board of Directors. Nevertheless, the Board could
consider providing a separate guideline(outside of the bylaw) that enables
members to express their dissatisfaction about a particular CEO's action.
