Response to How things are changed
As I'm certain you know, the By Laws do not provide for a means for an individual to submit an issue for consideration. Although this is frustrating, it is proper. Individual submissions carry the potential to circumvent the consensus of the members club.
I think that allowing the BOG to consider and present the issues of individuals for a vote of member clubs is a good thing. It provides a means for the BOG to consider worthwhile issues that an unaffliated individual might bring up. There can be no realistic means for an individual to demand consideration in such a process. However, it's a great way to get the finger pointed at yourself for being arbitrary and power hungry.
The advantage I see in the process is as follows:
As a new member of THAGC I can now send a letter expressing my concerns and views through the club. Those views will be considered and balanced along with the views of everyone else in the club. What comes out of that process could be vastly different than "my world view". I can also forward my letter to the BOG. It should carry no weight in the process, but it might by allowing something that I brought to their attention to be considered in arguements before a vote. To me, that's fair.
Overall, the By Laws do need some work. I am very comfortable that you are the kind of guy who will accept a fair outcome & appreciate your efforts to work for positive change.
