Thanks for the reply, Mark. I guess I just got off the list somehow.

"ARRL is a representative democracy — its members control its policies through the power of the ballot."
This is a noble statement and one that one would hope to be true of an organization that speaks to national and international organizations as if it indeed understood the will of its membership.
I have been a member on and off since I first obtained a license in 1954 at the age of 13. I have had continuous membership for most of my adult life. In all that time I can not remember once being asked or given the opportunity to vote for anyone or on anything. Perhaps I am mistaken, but you'd think even an old timer like myself would remember doing so.
I just discovered this forum and it occurred to me that this would be a good place to hold discussions about the governance of the organization which represents hams to the rest of the world.
Would anyone else like to see such a discussion?
