Default 2020 PDGA BOD elections

This thread is being started to have a discussion on the best candidates for the board of directors. I think people should consider voting for Yohannes Desalegn because he has experience growing the sport in new countries. It is also important that he is elected because the BOD needs someone outside of the US to be on it.

Current board is the best we have ever had and continuity is important. Read the candidate statements. If they are vague "grow the sport" type stuff rather than specifics that candidate may not be the best prepared for the job. Dave Foss is a big supporter of freedom for TD's and of local clubs which are probably the 2 things I care about the most in governance of our game. I will vote for Dave and hope others will consider doing so too.

Wow 16 candidates for 2 spots. That going to be one heck of a competition. Everything from Super experienced to none and everything in between.

We all have some homework to do.

In this conversation, it's also worth noting this recent change to the bylaws covered here: https://www.pdga.com/announcements/p...ed-june-3-2020

Quote:
Members with an ownership stake in a company, or employees of a company that (1) submits disc golf products to the PDGA for approval, such as discs or targets; or (2) uses PDGA support or funding outside of the standard sanctioning agreement, are not eligible to serve, or be appointed to serve, on the PDGA Board.
In September, when this goes into effect, will anyone on the current BoD be affected?

Unlikely. Otherwise, they would have indicated their intention to resign by that date so their replacement could be elected. Or, in the case of the two Board members running for re-election, they would not be running again.

He can serve for one year if elected as I understand it.
