I will add to this that those of us elected to the EC also discussed at great length what we would like to see happen in our platforms before we volunteered to work for whatever job description we take on. So, for example, to address a portion of your concerns, I suggest you refer to the platform Sam Castillo put forward before the elections at SM mtg. He's been working already as an interim Financial Manager.You can also check out where Logic, Inkera & I stand on issues relevant to what we would like to see happen. Jesse is on point, you can see the history of where he stands and the committment he represents all over the boards.
Although Suzi was nominated and elected kinda last minute style at the SM mtg, check out the questions she asked all of us to help shape our platforms---you get a lot of her concerns reflected in the sharpness of the questions she asked. She also won a lot of votes by putting on an amazing event, that sold out, generated revenue and she articulated financial concerns and related her grant writing experience as part of her platform at SM mtg. If you missed that bit of the meeting, a slam master or proxy would have been able to relay that information, too.
I'd also like to send up the flag that change is often slow and a process of creation and revision, much as writing is, so whatever we try to implement as change will be in the steps of motions, committees, research, reviewing applications, interviews, etc. all of which take time.
The forums and threads are squirrely, to be sure, but we still hear your concerns.
