Define 'these'. If you mean the current membership of theforum,
you're right AFAIK.

But that's not a future-proof solution as it depends on the current
membership. How do you change it thereafter? What are the criteria?
That it's a beauty contest and only you get a vote? Of course not. 

It would have to involve a larger number of people... and who would
those be if not the current membership of (delete as appropriate -
these are chosen because they're the immediately obvious available
options) BoD/Admin/theforum?

And if it's a matter of whichever group collectively deciding then
what you're getting is a replica of Admin with some new members
(all those on theforum who weren't Admin members before).
