needed to serve on this corporate board? Consistent with DM01-72 and
DM06-18 will you disclose here any competing interests and felony
convictions? Will you sign the following board member agreement if you

election? [ ]

culture in America. In this regard, has the organization been
successful? Why or why not? How should the organization measure

public? What indicators and processes should we use to find out whether
our board is doing its job?

Thank you very much for your interest in representing the interests of
the membership. You may wish to publicly post your answers for the
benefit of the USCF membership. I'm sure the membership will find your

your efforts to serve on our behalf.
