One more point I did not address in the Opinion I posted. The USHPA Governance Plan makes one of its important reasons to shrink the Board is a reduction in costs to have Director attend the Meetings. What they do not mention is that MANY of the current board members pay their own costs to and from the Board Meetings both Fall and Spring. Their cost to the USHPA is zero. Also like other Boards I have had association with, donations by Board members are substantial.
Food for thought.
