Well, the definition of what is a 'member' is one of the most important things to put in the statutes, if you intend to have members vote on issues. Without a clear definition of what is a member, your elections are a scam.

Also, i've seen a couple of constructs whereby members of a regional group each have a vote in the EU group. This could entail that the EU will need the member database of the local group, but in this case privacy law and/or the local groups statutes may conflict.
