A majority is 50% plus 1, correct? If the board is being expanded to 10, thats half, not a majority.

You are assuming the Chapters decide its 2 seats are filled with a
method other than some form of election, which may or may not be true. 

The Board present the new structure as the holders of a majority of
seats to have come from the community (3 direct election, 2 chapters, &
Jimbo), not that the majority will be elected, which isn't the case even
