In the absence of anything to the contrary, I'd have thought that just
fixing the application and sending a note to members@ (which you've
done) would be appropriate.

Despite being the one to have brought this up, indirectly, in the
thread about misleading applications I don't think this instance is a
big deal as all the members presumably know who their current Council
and Board are and would realise it's a copy/paste error.
