I realize this is totally unscientific and only a small percentage of NACHI members will respond but those who do are those who frequent the board and are the interested and concerned ones who help shape NACHI.
So the question is if you needed to file an ethics complaint or had one filed against you would you rather the case be heard by the MAB or the ESOP?
The MAB is elected. The MAB does currently have members such as myself who were appointed to fill vacancies. However, these members will have to run for re-election when the term they were appointed to expires.
The ESOP is appointed. As far as I can tell, it is appointed by Joe Farsetta. I think the question has been raised in the past as to how and why appointments were made but I have not seen an answer. If there is one, it would be worthwile information.
Note that the ESOP still formulates the SOP and Ethics polices under these new guidelines. However, it does require them to have a regular review process and to get public comment on any changes.
