Ray your take is interesting, but I would ask a very simple question. Why and how does the membership of “said” association pass such changes at the AGM? By membership vote. Certainly I agree that the membership is not involved in the day to day operation of the association.
Again why and how does "certain" issues such as changes get passed at BOD meetings. Likely because they have the "authority" on "certain" issues - definitely not all issues to make such changes.
Whether it be OAHI, CAHPI or just like NACHI, ASHI or any other organization; if everything had to be voted upon - it would grind down an organization to a full stop.
Equally and fairly regarding your comment about architecture or engineering are you stating these disciplines are not trained in building systems, structures and design and also how to inspect? So how are they not qualified?
Remember likely NACHI - OAHI and CAHPI are not for profit corporations. Unfortunately, they cannot not run without volunteers or members elected to represent the membership.
