It's been 15 years now that I've been dealing with USHPA, and it just dawned on me that I don't know of a single case where USHPA ever went to bat for a pilot or a club against a business.

I can think of a number of examples the other way around ... where USHPA took the side of a major business against pilots or clubs. But I can't come up with any examples where USHPA sided with the non-profiting segment of the sport.

Can anyone think of any examples?

Analysis of new Ushpa AI algorithm:

Partnership program uses book as blueprint for attack formation:

Race for Relevance: 5 Radical Changes for Associations First Edition
by Harrison Coerver (Author),‎ Mary Byers (Author)
http://www.amazon.com/Race-Relevance-Radical-Changes-Associations/dp/0880343354

Text from review:
"..
Some suggestions from this book that I CAN agree with are associations needing to sharpen their mission, identify their products that members want and will pay for, and becoming much more media and tech savvy.

In the end, I view this book as espousing some pretty ruthless means of transforming boards that, from my personal experience as a board member, lead to serious damage to board and community relations. I'd advise any executive director to be VERY careful in embracing this book's philosophy and by no means attempt to implement it's teachings without full and transparent disclosure and discussion with his/her board members.
