Zonal Governance Proposals
Our local bridge club has ceded our otherwise moribund Monday nights to group of social players. They typically have 4 or 5 tables. None of them are ACBL members and they don't want to be. I believe they contribute $2 per table toward the rent and other expenses. The ...

Ed, there is an edit button available before you choose "Publish". After that you are done modifying that post.
It took 45 years but eventually....
A couple of years ago I was on lead against 3NT, holding KTx,xx,xxx,KJT9x. The auction was uncontested: 1-2;2N-3N. I made the normal lead of the J. But the only lead that sets 3N was the K, because dummy had: Jx,xxx,AQJTxx,Ax and ...

I could not find an edit button or any other method for modifying an article once it is posted. You have to live with what you put there, and can only correct by comments or removing the post and starting a new one.

Zonal Governance Proposals
Rndy asked: "is the BOG really 125 people?" The BoG is made up of 1st and 2nd alternates and 3 BoG members elected from each of the 25 districts. That adds up to 125. Plus, all Past Presidents of the BoD (that are not currently on the BoD) and all ...
Zonal Governance Proposals
The $516K probably includes the ACBL President's allocation, as well as the expenses of all the other board members. Even so, that does sound high. And this was the 990 form for 2016, where the president's budget has been reduced since your days on the BoD, Don.
Zonal Governance Proposals
Previously, I had discussed the 'one person, one vote' proposal that failed the BoG vote. That could be approximated by having a board of 9 members, each selected by about 18,000 members. You could divide the ACBL into 9 zones: Florida, California, Canada, and 6 US zones: NE, SE ...
Zonal Governance Proposals
There are other factors which no one has mentioned that might be the most important. They are enthusiasm and willingness to work. That goes further than any expertise a candidate might possess. Not everyone has the time or energy to devote to the task, and new candidates might not know ...
Zonal Governance Proposals
Per the current ACBL Bylaws, the chair of the BoG sits on the BoD with voice but no vote. Perhaps the thought was that this should continue in some form even with a smaller BoD. Just my estimation of someone else's thought process.
