You're interpreting it correctly, though I assume ncopa will continue to
serve his roles in teams other than base during that time. I think that
you should trust ncopa to back a governance model he believes will work,
even if it means he has to take a break every few years. He is far from
uninvolved in these discussions, I suggest you trust his judgement in
this matter. After all, if he doesn't want the authority then it's not
your place to force him to accept it.
