The membership should be the ones voting IMO.
On 2nd thought the board should also provide a list who is being considered. Part of me is also wondering if board members are voting on our behalf if we should see who each voted for.
The Club executives with any real authority are the Board, and these members do get elected.
The President is more the public face of the Club and is its representative.
KenDarcovich Ok.....that changes nothing re what I wrote above. In theory if the president is more a public face to represent the club as a whole I couldn't think of a better group to vote for this person than the club as a whole.
KenDarcovich Any real authority? Historically it's the president that determines direction of the Club.I would say that's some big authority.
ODGC Members vote in the Board of Directors
The Board of Directors appoints the President
The President is the captain of the ship, and the Board makes sure she/he doesn't sink it
This is all in the Bylaws
BBP This is why I feel the membership should be voting for the president . Pretty much exactly what you said . Also if the membership for voting both parties in it helps protect the interest of the membership on a whole
My worst case scenario for the setup is if you have a board that Is fond of a bad idea That the membership Is also not too crazy about it - In the current setup the board could appoint a president who agrees with it . If the membership vote for both parties One can act as a check and balance on the other
SundayLeague Like donating $$$$ to another course/Club/tournament? Already happened
That being said I think The current board Has being the strongest we've ever had
SundayLeague Loving your t-shirt, eh
And if I were going to place a $20 bet on who I might think the next president is going to be I think we're probably going to be in some pretty good hand anyways But this is more food for thought in the future
We've already been down this road. Ate the food for thought. And came up with the Bylaws. The past 3 presidents were done this way.
bbp yup i realize that.
bbp that could be used as a potential example of a situation what i was talking about....but you already ate the food for thought so im guessing by your tone it does not sound like you want to improve this aspect of the clubs structure im guessing...so yeah thats how it goes lulz.
bbp the ladies love it more 😉
