Should seniority “win” in the Senate or in our association?

I am constantly amazed at how what is going on all around us has applicability to associations. Check out this article from Sunday’s Parade Magazine on Should Congress Stop Rewarding Seniority?

Basically it asks if Senate protocol to award committee chairmanship to the longest-serving members is still valid. It’s the same question we should be asking in our associations … that is if we want to engage new thinking, new communication channels and new faces (not to mention the new generation).

What do you think?
