Chair of Gymnastics NZ is an ex YNZ board member

On one level that is not even funny, on another level that is hilarious. 

So is there a pool of directors that just stooge around getting quashy spots on boards of public sporting bodies and snuffle up their fees and preferential treatment?

It's a great lurk if you can get it. Boards of Directors do policy, drawn up by the CEO & Staff which gets rubber stamped by said Board . Then go to conferences, that are in reality junkets.Staff then do more or less what they like, CEO keeps Board happy & we (the people) pay and obey. Very rarely does this system come unstuck, like Jenny Shipley, but when it does its spectacular. Everyone runs for cover . YNZ will unravel and the momentum has started.

I once sat on a board of a PHO that worked like that (I resigned after 4 months as it plain scared me as a director) - the CEO was completely incompetent at managing a medical business but very good at capturing the board and Chair with dinner invites, conferences etc.- anyone who put that cozy relationship at risk on the board was ostracised. It was eye opening to say the least.

I don’t think the majority of boards work like that but certainly seems to be a lot in the Not for Profit space.
