Re: CNA requirements

Why can't we make it one of the rules for a CNA?

 There must be two points of contact identified at all times either to 
MITRE or the parent CNA. If a listed point of contact leaves the 
company, the company is required to notify the appropriate parent CNA 
of the POC change.
