Perhaps it too late, but it seems the first order should be to determine on what basis people are actually casting their votes for TDP Chair?
There seems to be some fundamentally different views of the Chair’s role:
- Chairman of the board? (if so what board? SDEC?)
- Executive Director?
- CEO? COO? HR? MARKETING? or??
- strategist-in-chief?(global or local or all?)
all, none, just a few…?
Lets separate opinion from legal fact, if any.
So, perhaps there is some legal description of this (unpaid) job?
or legal proscription of what the Chair can and cannot do (regardless of what traditionally the chair does and doesnt do)?
what body, if any, governs the chair? does the legal language,if any, say they have to approve, allow, guide??
Once those facts are known, then let the discussion debates arguments roll on about what roles COULD be filled, and which are most important (and give some basis for why its important), and who is most likely to fill that bill.
so, who has some knowledge on the legal questions?
