My error seems to have been a wrong understanding of how the board 
works.  It seems to me now that the board in the majority considers 
themselves more administrators and less decision makers than i though.  
I say this without judgement, just an observation.

But just to clarify: Implementing term limits would from my point of 
view result in zero increase in work.  Changing the mode of elections 
to fixed terms would result in a very moderate temporary increase in 
work because of the required changes in the internal procedures.  But i 
understand that most other decisions result in a lot of work so it is 
understandable you are reluctant to make unnecessary decisions and 
changes in general.
