If you are really interested in how the Board works, I'm happy to talk with you directly -- let's set up a time to talk and I can take you through how I see it.

This is also incorrect. Thinking through a proper proposal for this change would involve definite work.

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.
