Along the lines of your post I've got one question, on the one and only BOD meeting I attended by phone there was a proposal for a rule that a BOD member could not enter into any business dealings without disclosure and approval from the other board members. Makes sense right? Well, it was fought tooth and nail and soundly defeated at that time.
For the life of me I couldn't figure out why as I was a newbie at that time and didn't know all the players nor did I know much of the backstory, but now that I've been around a bit I think I understand. Secrets and self dealing.
To add to that the repeated suggestions of some BOD members that member attendance at the BOD meetings be curtailed mystified me (until recently) and allowing the recording to be edited before release "supposedly" to remove confidential information or "accidental" statements.
BOD members clearly in league with some competitors and/or promoters then being somewhat less than truthful when confronted and questioned about their conduct.
What is one supposed to think?
If I'm incorrect in my assessment of what's going on please inform me as to why I or others should think differently.
This is looking more and more like a swamp that needs to be drained.
