Maybe we should also consider adding that the President can hold no other position.
That sounds like a very good start. Could be a proposal for an EGM.

You need the right people in other positions of course, too bad so many good people have had to resign. This could be a good start.

I agree with that - it would have a decent chance of getting through, but if it didn't, it might be clear that things are as bad as Ernie fears

Would be good if Cleveland proposed it (via the NCCU if necessary)
