To what end?

I am often amazed at how different our members' opinions are, and how passionate some are about their opinions. It is no surprise that there are differences of opinion about virtually everything that CSI, its members, and its leaders do, and it is no surprise that some of those differences cannot be reconciled. Fortunately, most members, in most cases, are willing to discuss their differences, make decisions, and move on.

I understand the passion, and I want to make it clear that until proven otherwise, I believe that all members truly feel they are acting in the best interest of CSI, even when they don't agree. But because of these divergent and often contradictory opinions, our leaders will never make everyone happy all the time.
