This Tuesday morning is the next meeting of the long range planning committee. Should be interesting. With each passing day i become more detached to the current process of “self-governance,” simply because it no longer is. Committee’s have almost always been more show than go. Unless and until the board sees the value of them, they just become a dumping ground to make it look like we are serving a purpose. We wrote a comprehensive statement regarding the next generation of home buyers and at the core of their expectations was technology. Pretending we are meeting those expectations with half-measures and a band-aid approach to the myriad of problems we have regarding technology only insures we will never be compatible with their needs. What the hell was the purpose of the report if the end game is to just do whatever management wants? We’ll see what happens Tuesday, but i’m not holding my breath.
