>> ... I guess the point is that only very few (less then 20%) determine the
future of the organization (by voting). That is not good!
Stefan, in the United States, we are lucky to get 20 per cent to vote in many
local, statewide, and national elections.
It is embarrassing. It is irresponsible. But it is how lackadaisical this
country has become when it comes to important matters.
Personally, I do not see why fellow AMSAT members should only have this 20 per
cent figure voting. Keep sending in your dues, non-voters. Keep AMSAT-NA in
your wills. But don't you non-voters moan and complain when matters arise that
you disagree with. You couldn't make the effort to affix a stamp and lick an
envelope when the future of AMSAT-NA mattered. Don't show your face here and
complain about a single thing AMSAT-NA is doing.
Just my opinion, of course.
