I feel like there is an interesting dichotomy going on if my memory serves me correctly.
All volunteer members of committees can be found here.

It is interesting that the Discipline Committee is the only one that is not fully listed out with members. Maybe it is a committee of two? I can't see a lot of people volunteering for this committee.

The PDGA keeps the members of our committee private. The only name published is mine, as chair. We have 8 members.

We recently had a vacancy and I had about 50 applications to join. There is absolutely interest in being on this committee.

Why? My membership should allow 100% transparency on chairs, members, etc.

Considering the nature of what the disciplinary committee does, it's probably prudent that the members aren't publicly known. Seems like they, of all the committees, are apt to come under the most scrutiny from people with a personal grudge (as opposed to a philosophical disagreement). Don't really want people making disciplinary decisions based on concerns over personal backlash as opposed to on the merits of the case.

Definitely disagree with the PDGA keeping members of ANY committee a secret.

Atleast we know they are not volunteering for recognition

I just like taking the occasional contrarian position in here. It hones my thoughts and gives me solid typing practice.

Note the condition 'real' in real advantage. Suggesting that he's aware there might be an advantage but that it is small enough to not bother him.

Thank you for that, Jugular.

I should try to remember that in the current climate, both in here and in the world generally, we aren't allowed the luxury of vague defenses of our stupid opinions.

Freely stipulated: I don't always achieve the level of precision with language that I'm going for. I blame television. And Hilary, of course, because everything is her fault.
