Memphis Report from BOD Member, District 17
You are right that there have been many attempts to restructure the BoD and BoG. All have failed to pass muster from the BoD. That doesn't mean we should give up. Perhaps the latest round of financial disasters will be a big impetus for the BoD to vote a ...
Memphis Report from BOD Member, District 17
Jeff, the concept is that the senate would be largely done in committees, and committee members would include interested people outside the senate, much as a number of bridge committees do today. Instead of these committees making their recommendations to the BoD as they do today, they would report to ...
Memphis Report from BOD Member, District 17
One point of discussion is how the Nominating Comm. would select candidates. One concept is that the NC would be formed by Senate members, and others outside the Senate and BoD, with some skill and interest in choosing candidates who know about running a non-profit organization. Even an outside professional ...

Yes, JoAnn, you are right about the various ways the Bylaws can be changed. But if the BoG proposes a change, it still requires approval by the BoD. If a bylaws changed is proposed at the membership meeting, it would take 2+ years and requires a quorum at each membership ...
Memphis Report from BOD Member, District 17
That's a great idea. Now we just need an incentive! But if they all quit, then all the 1st and 2nd alternates will also have to be persuaded to quit. Finally, if that is achieved there will be no one to revise the bylaws, and the ACBL will have ...

On the more serioous side, the term Senate is not a fixed notion. The current proposal is that the Senate (or whatever you want to call it), would be comprised of 2 elected members from each of the 25 districts. They would have autonomy to make decisions regarding all matters ...

I do believe Mike meant surveys of the existing BoD members. For this concept to be implemented requires bylaws changes that can only be changed effectively by the current BoD. If we can't muster enough vote from the 25 BoD members, the work is all for naught.
Memphis Report from BOD Member, District 17
The ACBL is required by NY law to have a Board of Directors. Any elected member of the BoD cannot be terminated before their term is up, also by NY law. The current proposal is to provide a transition from 25 BoD members down to 9 over a 3 year ...
Defending a “psych”
To answer your 3rd question: while 2N is normally not alertable if it asks opener for more information, I do think this should be alerted if there can be hands that do not intend to raise to 4 regardless of North's reponse. Separate question: does this pair do ...
Does UI have to be helpful to count?
The OP, Mike Ash, has not filled in his profile, so it would normally be hard to determine where the deal took place. However, one of Mike Ash's secondary posts states: "Are others saying that South should not announce before the lead that he now realised that his bid ...
