Remove the "board member representative" requirement for the Global Committees.
This idea was intiated as a mechanism to provide the committeess with a "line" to the board. It has evolved, however, into a percieved "veto" option for the board. Instead, I recommend we implement a "requirement" for the Global Committee chair to present their committee progress to the Board during the meetings. This moves the requirement of participation from the Board and provides the Committee an opportunity to present items that require vote.
Approve $5K in funding for the Global Membership, Global Conferences, and Global Chapter Committees for operational support
These three committees have initiatives for 2011 as defined during the summit. These initiatives will require many "tasks" that are time consuming and will require uninterrupted hours to complete. I would like the committee chair to "approve" the selection. These contracted staff will be supervised by me, the Operations Director. Tasks managed and outcomes tracked as directed by the committee chairs.
