"Well-meaning", lovely. They dissolved abruptly, in a conspicuous
silence, after declaring that their convention activity was only
preliminary to a campaign in the next election.I'm inquiring into
what happened with that.
Once again I will not name names, but the one or two on the Board whose
purpose was more to tear down than to build up more or less ruined
things. Also there was the fact that the only thing that really united
the group was a dislike of the then-current administration. I really
believe that some of their suggestions would have been adopted had they
been worded more reasonably.
One reaction of the TSA Board which, as a supporter of the Board, I
personally found very distasteful was the redistricting. Essentially, it
guaranteed that candidates for Board who were not supported by the
current Board would find it almost impossible to let their views be
known among the membership. I suspect a plan I was pushing, to have
Federations create regional speaker plans not unlike National's National
Speakers had something to do with it, as it would allow people to get
regionally known without the direct control of National. However, I was
unable to generate interest in my idea, anyway.
