You need to find out more about the structure of the ADNA Board: the
Articles allow up to 6 Board members as representatives of the Full 
Members and 2 representing the Associate members:

    Any Organisation that is a non-profit organisation, its objects
    including  the development and furtherance of the Internet or
    aspects of the Internet, may apply to be a Full Member.

    Any Domain Name Administrator may apply to become an Associate

Peter Gerrand is on the Board, up front, as a domain name administrator.
The influence of any single interest on any Board is supposed to be
balanced by the other Board members, who are -all- responsible for an
organisation's progress or lack of it.  

If you believe the membership structure is flawed and is the cause of
ADNA's problems then perhaps you need to suggest a different one.  But
right now, this is its legal structure.
