I agree with the philosophy that folks need to get more involved if they don't like the direction and leadership of the NAS. If leaders are nominated and elected by vote, we need more folks to get involved. Not less just because we don't like what they're doing.

I guess pen and paper will be needed to keep our thoughts accurate.

Amen. I haven't been that involved because my life is busy as is everyone's and I was under the impression they were doing a good job until the administration acted the way the did on 12/2/14. Going forward I am committed to making myself more involved and strengthening the NAS. The last 6 weeks have given the NAS a huge opportunity to become stronger in numbers and influence if they choose to seize the opportunity.

I think web behavior and actual face to face meeting behavior gets confused at times, by parties putting on events and by parties attending. I don't see anything wrong with clarifying rules to begin a meeting.

However, I do think it rather infantile and at least portraying the appearance of impropriety when you tell folks, "No Phones or recording devices allowed." Then people start to repay the distrust in kind.

JMHO.

Is there a mechanism for recall of NAS officers?

From what I hear, the past NAS presidents are furious over the decision to drop the three sports as well as the Admins lack of NAS engagement. The current board has met with them as well and is taking their feelings and comments into consideration. Should be a lively meeting no less.
