i am now on a committee writing new bylaws for cbdc.
there seem to be two opposing views on decision making.
A. a board be elected and it be responsible for making decisions. the board
can ask for general dancer input, but only the board can vote and make
B. that all meetings be public meetings, and everyone at the particular
meeting gets to vote on the decision.
of course there are both tiny, medium, and large decisions to be made in the
course of time, and no distinction was offered. just the desire that all
members (or perhaps, anyone that shows up) be allowed to make all decisions.
to me this obviates the whole point of a board: having a small group that
can retain focus, be responsible for decisions, be available for making
decisions on short notice.
comments on the B approach? has anyone tried it? how did it go?
