1 board member cannot force the rest of the board to follow. Whatever the issue is, it takes a majority to move forward and implement. (Unless you can rule by executive order, that is) Preventing motivated people from holding board positions? Really? Take a look at the USHPA board. Virtually every person there are stakeholders in the flying community. They have “skin in the game”, businesses that depend on the survival of the sport. Sometimes what seems to be a self serving action actually is beneficial to all. Knee jerk reactions, should be avoided. If you are that passionate, run for a board position. Next year.
