We had people get a little power hungry, so we took away dictatorship.
Our team elects a Pres, VP, Treasurer, and Sec every year...They handle all the regular contests throughout the year. We vote as a team on big things but the officers pretty much handle the decisions
We also have a "Founders Council" that is comprised of the 4 people that started the team, plus the current president. This council runs Memphis in May since it is so expensive and involved.
This has worked for 8 years.
We have suspended members, booted members, and put members on probation. All by majority rule.
Of course our team is bigger than most...
