Western Region Trustee Reports re Strawman

Subject: USNA Alumni Association Board of Trustees Reorganization



      The USNA Alumni Association Board of Trustees will hold its fall meeting on 1 December 2005.  Among the agenda is a vote to reorganize the Board as follows:


     The proposal before the BOT would reduce the BOT (by 4) to 25 Trustees by: a.) Eliminating all 4 Region Trustees, 4 of 12 Chapter Trustees, 2 Board selected Trustees, and the immediate past Chair; and, b.) Adding 6 “elected At-Large” Trustees and 1 Class Trustee.  The Chair, Vice Chair, and President/CEO would remain unchanged.


      My intent is to vote against the reorganization because it eliminates the Region Trustees and adds the At-Large Trustees.  My objection is that the elimination of the trustees divided by regions across the US will eventually end up with the majority of trustees representing the group of alumni that reside on the eastern seaboard.  I support increasing the number of Region Trustees to better represent our alumni.


      If you have a strong opinion one way or the other, please send me an email.  I have waited this late to address the proposal with you in order to ensure that the proposal was officially part of the agenda.


      BEAT ARMY!
