Memphis Report from BOD Member, District 17
In suggesting that unit boards are not qualified to vote for BoD members, you apparently assume that these other stakeholders-- specifically "owners and patrons of large bridge clubs, owners and patrons of small bridge clubs, attendees and administrators of unit and district tournaments in densely populated areas, attendees and administrators ...
Designing a better "Ecosystem"
Jeff, as the author of about 30 articles in this specialized Forum, surely you can propose a tentative list of the association's objectives. Otherwise, this agendaless meeting is reminiscent of Chris Compton's [url=]exhortations[/url] to generate a quorum for a membership ...

John has already identified one or two Laws that appear to confer superpowers on club directors, so he's not inclined to consider other Laws that may limit that authority. Looking at ...
Defending a “psych”
*Suborning a psych?" Is that one type of collusive cheating?
