Should the USCF Executive Board be made the board of directors?

Perhaps the membership itself should ultimately decide rather than a small group of insiders based upon the recommendations from a Special Task Force on USCF Governance that has been trying to ponder the question since its establishment on February 25, 2010.

Regardless below are some links which should help structure the answer to the question.

  1. Openess is about being able to see through and into the decision-making process and about having access to follow relevant meetings.

    Transparency is about having adequate access to the relevant documents and databases.

    I'm told the USCF has changed in how it operates. I am unable to see that
    currently in the way we are progressing. I as most SME volunteers have much
    better things to do with my time than piddle with a board task force that is not
    well organized. I'm sorry if I'm currently unaccustomed with the USCF time to
    get things done. Thanks.

    Here is a message thread outlining what is underway with the GTF, if you are
    still interested that is.
