RE: to the BOD's and AMSAT-NA president. - REPLY -

The famous eighteenth century British legislator, Sir Edmund Burke, said 
that, "My constituents elected me to use my judgment, not to just vote 
their interests."

Of course, he was not reelected.  But, he had a good point, IMHO.  Every 
representative (or Board Member) has the same conflict from time to time.

Just something to think about.

Polls might helpful.  But, great care is necessary or they turn out to be 
used like a drunk uses a lamp post: more for support than illumination.

A Member skills data base already exists, though it is not published for a 
variety of reasons.  See: 
http://www.amsat.org/amsat/volunteer-survey.html.  Participation is purely 
voluntary.  Though, more people participating gives the Board a better view.

Hope this helps.
