IANAL, but I don't think the Board can decide to have a non-profit organization (EF) do something that is clearly/obviously in the commercial interests of *some/one* of the member organizations. Again IANAL so I may be wrong about details...but I think the Board does have responsibilities that are not the same as the feduciary responsibilities of a commercial organization's Board.
