In my 4 decades being around and promoting this sport ..
I have seen scores of organizations come and go ...
The UPA is attemting to set some guidelines to protect their interests ( the players ).
Until a sanctioning body, i.e., UPA, PBTA, PBT , MPBA, WPA, IBC and a host of others that have come and gone .. actually supply the money for the events through their own efforts to acquire sponsorship .. then they will never have the power necessary to command their voice be heard .. and obeyed .. by both the player/members and the promoters .. without the gold .. the players will always break ranks and go after any tournaments to make what meager amounts of coin they can !!!!!
