In the version as of today, the term "board of directors" is used. We must clarify the term and what we actually want. In the IHPVA, the term is used for a board of named nine directors which are elected by the total membership. In the WHPVA, we are at present only 12 members, each being a person (as yet unnamed) representing a national HPV association. In my opinion, these members are not directors and should be called "board of members", "membership board", or just "board". This board should be the highest authority in the WHPVA, i.e. a majority of members has the last word (we need to define "majority" however). We do need a subset of these people to "direct" and organise the WHPVA. I would not call it the "board of directors", in order to avoid confusion. Perhaps "executive committee", which includes the chair and at least two other officers to be determined. "Officers" are special functions with the authority to manage their defined areas, but otherwise no special rights. The only WHPVA officers mentioned (but only partially named) so far are the chairman of the WHPVA, the chairman of the record committee, two further members of the record committee, and the webmaster. --[[Utilisateur:Theosch|Theosch]] 20 novembre 2013 à 11:02 (UTC)

At present the draft proposal requires at minimum land AND water competitions at Worlds Championships. In the past only very few events have managed this. However there have often been separate water events which were then considered part of the WC "virtually". However even this is not always possibel, e.g. this year 2014. The previous (mostly German) organisers can not this year, and at the venue of the land events near Besancon this year, the French organisers have no manpower or experience to organise water events as well.

Discussion page for "Constitution"

This page is for discussing changes to the proposed WHPVA constitution. Please remember to "sign" at the end using the third button from the left at the top of the editing window, or two hyphens and four "tilde" ("~"). However the "summary" field below need not be used, as this discussion page is not normally edited. Please note that this page is in principle readable by the public and could be picked up by a search engine.

Board of directors (not)

In the version as of today, the term "board of directors" is used. We must clarify the term and what we actually want. In the IHPVA, the term is used for a board of named nine directors which are elected by the total membership. In the WHPVA, we are at present only 12 members, each being a person (as yet unnamed) representing a national HPV association. In my opinion, these members are not directors and should be called "board of members", "membership board", or just "board". This board should be the highest authority in the WHPVA, i.e. a majority of members has the last word (we need to define "majority" however). We do need a subset of these people to "direct" and organise the WHPVA. I would not call it the "board of directors", in order to avoid confusion. Perhaps "executive committee", which includes the chair and at least two other officers to be determined. "Officers" are special functions with the authority to manage their defined areas, but otherwise no special rights. The only WHPVA officers mentioned (but only partially named) so far are the chairman of the WHPVA, the chairman of the record committee, two further members of the record committee, and the webmaster. --Theosch 20 novembre 2013 à 11:02 (UTC)

Water Competition at World Championships

At present the draft proposal requires at minimum land AND water competitions at Worlds Championships. In the past only very few events have managed this. However there have often been separate water events which were then considered part of the WC "virtually". However even this is not always possibel, e.g. this year 2014. The previous (mostly German) organisers can not this year, and at the venue of the land events near Besancon this year, the French organisers have no manpower or experience to organise water events as well.

I guess there are several solutions:

  1. forget about the requiremen for both land and water events
  2. make two types of world championships, those with and those without water events
  3. require a world championship to include promotion of the other vehicle type, but not races. E.g. the land events must at the very least set up a boat and a few posters, or preferably show a few boats in action on a nearby stretch of water. Conversely the water events must at the very least set up a land HPV and a few posters, or preferably demonstrate a few HPVs in action.
