I understood that most of us (chapters) have different preferences, and we
I personally prefer an Asian to be part of the board seats, but from the
choices we have today, we much prefer a person who has the most interaction
with our chapter.
I think if knew more each other, and also have a brave person from within
our Asian chapters vie for that seat in the next selection, most likely we
can have a common preference.
