There still is no effort by the board to communicate to the SCs and the SCs to communicate to the MDs what the fuck is happening.
Maybe this is just me, thinking I'm a special snowflake, but there is some effort. But it's personal effort, not anything institutional.
I send an email out to all the clubs and SCs in Area-1 before every Board meeting, after every Board meeting, and whenever something noteworthy happens in between. I ask for input on the published agenda, I invite people to comment or share a position on what we're planning to do, and afterwards I offer up my perspective on why things went they way they did. I send out to about 120 addressees (~12 SCs, ~57 clubs, a bunch of MDs, all the RMs in Area-1, and a few others, like past SCs, Angry Chuck, and people that have asked to be added). On average I get maybe 5 responses. Maybe 10 if I ask a "please give me a yay or nay on this" question, like "should we give Production Optics a try?".
Not sure if that means nobody cares, or they're all laser-focused on local issues and putting on good matches for their shooters, or they're sick of hearing from me and wish I'd shut up and EABOD, or whatever. It kinda feels like an echo chamber sometimes. Especially when, later, some of those same folks complain that "nobody told them what was happening".
