Hey Peter, now that you're elected...what are you going to do? Did you get the appropriate colleagues to work with?
Anyways, after Worlds I think I understand more about what you've been saying. They were horrible at telling people what was going on, even though the infrastructure (both human and machine) for doing so was well in place. They lacked consistency, which combined with lack of information flow, led to huge communications breakdowns. I think they could really really really use somebody whose job is simply to have access to all information, be well-informed by all staff and board of directors, and disseminate information directly to the players and people, via the website, the magazine, the phone, face-to-face, etc.. Because they don't do it. They hold on to every tidbit of information, like it was "the precious," and don't bother to tell people, and then when things blow up in their faces they're like "what in the world is happening?"
PDGA really need transparency. Not just in the budget, but in every single facet. Board meetings should all be recorded on video and posted online. Everything should be disseminated.
