As an incoming 2013 BoD member, I'm thinking the 2013 BoD is seated 1/1/13, same date as the contest, which means ToY approval isn't up to the 2013 board. The December meeting is "transitional" and I'm not sure what that means on BoD votes but my guess is that only the 2012 BoD members have vote before 1/1/2013.
Given that we're past the 45-day advance-deadline, I first have to ask "what date was the application and complete fee received?" to make sure we're observing the 45-day deadline. The authority on this is Adam ToY Commish, right?
