I assume that would be to re-elect board members. If so that is fair enough.I've voted many many times in North board elections.
An existing board should decide on bringing on new board members. Not club members. That is prudent and is why it happens in the corporate world. Makes little sense to have shareholders or club members to decide who should be a board member when they are not in a position to understand how the board can work effectively or the complimentary skillset required.
Collingwood's biggest issue was having a President for over 10 years. Good governance suggests a president should have a maximum term. Otherwise, particularly when it comes to a member based club, you have a situation whereby he/she treats it like it's theirs. Eddie got himself involved in areas of the club a president should not have.
