4.16 Be aware of special privileges

Be aware that executive committee members may choose to overlook by-law breaches by those friendly to them or may seek to have work done that particularly benefits themselves or their friends.  For example, one executive committee member kept a cat without asking for permission but with the knowledge and tacit approval of the chair. It made him beholden to support the chair (who was getting paid significant strata funds) in decisions where he may have normally had a different opinion.
