Discussion About the Size of the Board

The board would like to reduce its size to 5 directors but would like the input of the general membership.

We need more officers a lot more than we need board members right now, and a lot of people are doing both (and sometimes also running a zone) and burning out and that is not helpful. If we reduce the size of the board, that means at least some people have less stuff to do.

Also we have spent this past year with effectively 6 board members because Rick ended up moving for work right after the term started and this didn't cause any issues till there had to be a unanimous vote.

Proposal to Change the Timing of the Board Elections

Proposal:
Amend the date of the board election in the Standing Rules to move it up one month from the September member meeting to the August member meeting with the start of nominations moving from August 1st to July 1st.
Context
This is requested by the board because there are reports to the State of Michigan that are due in September which doesn't leave the Secretary sufficient time post-election to prepare the reports.
