  In a message dated 96-12-15 23:13:51 EST, in regard to Bert Berrong's letter
about the interests being represented in a President's Council, Bill
Marcellus wrote:

I agree with Bill, there is no doubt that IAC's most visible activity is
competition.  About 1 in 10 members fly competition during any year.  What
makes membership attractive to the non-competition group?  What ever it is,
the interests represented by a Presidents Council in their business sessions,
even if weighted heavily toward competition, would probably not change the
views of the 9 out of 20 members who are not active in competition.

The magazine may be the attraction for some of our members, and it is now
better than I have ever seen it in the past.  I seriously doubt that a
Presidents Council would change the look or direction of the magazine.

The bottom line is that such a council would provide better and more diverse
grass roots representation and would most likely help this organization.
