Seems it's been this way for ever and will continue as long as the same 
faces keep showing up on the ballot.  When the Symposium was in Toronto 
I suggested the club use this event to have the BOD candidates address 
the membership.  The idea had very little traction with the higher ups.

Change is not an easy thing at AMSAT. It is nice to see some new blood 
moving in to the BOD. There are some Directors that have long passed 
their "best before date" unfortunately they can't see it.
