We've formed a new board, and we need to elect directors!  Please do
the following for me:

1) Let me know if you'd be willing to be an officer.
2) Let me know what approximate hours UTC are generally good for you
   for an online chat (maybe a Google Hangout?) lasting about one
   hour.  Please be flexible, there are a lot of us and we're in a lot
   of time zones!

The officer positions are:

President: Responsible for things like organizing board meetings and
    making sure various legal things are taken care of.  Should keep
    an eye on other officers for shenanigans.

Vice President: Takes care of things when the President cannot, may be
    asked by the board to do executive-type things.  In practice, this
    means nothing.

Treasurer: Responsible for doing basically everything as far as I can
    tell, including telling the President what the President should be
    doing.  Files taxes, manages bank accounts, etc.

Secretary: Responsible for taking notes at the board meetings, keeping
    an up-to-date list of the officers of the corporation and their
    contact info.

The actual official officer positions and their duties (not the
summaries above) are in our bylaws, here:


My responses will follow as an example.
