AMA has a procedure for soliciting input vis a vis fundamental changes
to the organization.

It's called 'consult with the Leader Members'.

Matter of fact, Leader Members are supposed to _vote_ on changes to
the Constitution, By-Laws and Standing Rules, etc.

McNeill is trying an end-run around the system.

Again.

Re: Jim McNeill AMA VP District V on nomination proceedure changes

Quotes from JM's letter to the club Presidents:

"Our Board of Directors is constantly seeking new ways to improve
our election process."

"A new idea is to use AMA Chartered Club Presidents"

"My purpose in writing you is to see if you would be willing"

"I'd like to hear from you."

Yep! Sounds like an end run to me! Imagine that sneaky SoB! Trying to find
out if an idea will even have the membership support it needs before taking
it to the next step. Of course if he didn't do this, who would be the first
to claim he was wasting AMA money? Or trying some other scheme like doing
nothing?

I have little doubt that JM's time is long past. But the hate and bigotry
displayed here towards him shows the true colors of his enemies. And it's
not a segment of the hobby I'd like to see take his place. We wouldn't gain
a thing by it.

No hate or bigotry here. JM simply doesn't do the job. District V has a DVP
who doesn't fly ANYTHING! What a noxymoron. When I lived in Dist. V, I voted
aganst him every time. Evidently there are enough in that district who are
happy with the way things are.

Fred,
I really hate to say this, but I am afraid you have misspoken in your post.
Read it again and note that first you question the reason for creating a new
wheel (not Leader Members but club presidents) and then clearly demonstrate
the very reason!

Could you clear that up for me please?
