Just changed references general meeting to board meeting and membrship to
board member.

s/of this org/of the board of this org/

Add two board members able to call a meeting, not just able to direct the
president to call a meeting.. otherwise, SPI could still get hamstrung by a
resigned president or president that's caught up with real life.

The two board members were removed from this paragraph.
