I have already put up a number of starting point suggestions in the Forum.

The most important suggestion I have to make at this stage is, after we 
have consensus on the mission Statement, that we focus next on the creation 
of a series of meta-Articles that outline the (democratic) rights and 
duties of the members.
These articles will then govern the interpretation of more detailed 
articles dealing with motions, candidates, officers, committees, polling, 
chair roles, etc.
This will help to shorten the inevitable later sqabbles about Charter 

(like: Right to Nominate, Right to Vote, Right to Motion, Duty to pay 
membership dues, etc.)

Since you seem to favour a separation between Charter and Bylaws, what part 
of the rough outline on the website do you want for the Charter and what 
for the Bylaws?

Should I make a separate Heading and description?
