While agree with your interpretation of the rules, in practice, it is the
President who really head the TS. That is what you will also see in the
sections. The members go along and usually due to various complicated
reasons rarely differ with the head.  So we have to wait and see what is in
store for the TS.

One area where I have been repeatedly shouting is that the TS is not using
Internet effectively. A passive website is ok. It is one way communication
with the world which includes members. Two-way communication is lacking.
With all the talk about Internet, technology, foresight, vision and all, for
the last several years, even in the American Section, the progress is very
very minimal. One wonders why? Perhaps it is the fear of inability to
control flow and velocity of flow of info both ways. One cannot take
advantage of time lag that paper mail allows.
