Bigger Committee


This rule change does:

This is quite controversial. The pros:

  1. Audit needs more attention, more people, more effort, and there's a stack of other important non-audit tasks.
  2. traditionally it is hard to get people to do big tasks if they are not on the board, or the board isn't giving them attention.
  3. At any one time, roughly half of the committee members might be inactive, travelling, busy, or not interested in that task.
  4. there are changes coming through that effect the assoc.; having more members will make that easier.

The cons:

  1. 10 members all working together will be too much noise, too much chance of discord, etc
  2. raising the quorum means we really do need more consensus and more people to get votes through.
