Re: [messengers] Fwd: Voting system at CMWC Mexico

From: Andy Zalan <zalandy@xxxxxxxxx>

i have no problem with this proposal.

to be "official" however, if we care about that shit, i believe the ifbma
council needs to make an amendment to the bylaws or something.

is there a date by which a city has to express intent to bid or can they
just show up and make a bid?
