A concensus of the membership was taken last election. The members who voted were 70+% in favor of regional representation. There was no method voted on by the membership to implement it. Last February, there were 3 new directors on the board and a new president. The Bylaws committee has worked on changes for member ratification since July. All of the proposed Bylaw changes deal with director diversity, two of the three changes discussed will be on the up-coming ballot. In September, there were two methods under discussion for regional representation. October's meeting knocked one method out. November's meeting brought complaint about the regional map being based on numbers rather than actual regions. December's meeting could not reach consensus on member distribution.
Obviously, the board meets once a month where all business has to be discussed and handled. I will take responsibility for not having this on the upcoming ballot. But I will not feel bad for not having a plan, any plan, on the ballot. If something isn't ready, let's get it ready and consider well all options and ramifications rather than throw something together just for the sake of having it.
