I didn't mean sponsors will have more seats. I meant sponsors should have
some representation on board. There would be elections for rest of the seats
with a predefined procedure.
Why do you expect a sponsor to pour several million $ when you don't even
let them participate in the working. I am not asking them to be given any
veto. But to my logic they should be given a non-veto, nor majority role.
My 2 cents...

Maybe we can have a JCP like system wherein all members vote.
We can also give the sponsors a particular number of seats ( non-veto
powers) to the sponsors who have supported it .
I propose not exactly a JCP like system but we can look at a modified
version of JCP voting system
What do you guys feel ?
I am very much against your proposal that sponsors could have more
seats or something similar. One Member = One Vote. Clear and Simple.
OTOH, I am not familiar with the JCP voting process.
But if I may suggest: perhaps that level of details does not need to be
mentioned in the bylaws? Keep in mind that everything we put there will
automatically be difficult to change.
The difficulty of changing the voting procedure is a point to mention it
in the by-laws.
It shows from the beginning a distinct procedure of voting (whatever it
looks like). This gives a reliability to each member/sponsor etc. that
the voting-process isn't changeable that easy. Nobody must fear, that
for the next election her/his vote doesn't count any more because a
minority/small majority thinks to have found a better way of election.
