Fwd: Board meeting and Chairman's Resignation 19 Sep 2011 13:32 #32790


I agree with Charlie once again.

With one important exception:

The "Main List" is open to the whole wide world. This debate should be
accessible only to DBA members

It was decided some time ago to have the "Association Matters" list and I
believe that this is where the current subject properly belongs.

It is open to every member to subscribe to the "Am" list if they are
interested.

This debate looks likely to be an extremely serious one.
I would say in the circumstances it would be in order for the list
moderators to draw the attention of their list members to the fact that it
should be on the "Am" list.

For those who are not normally interested in the "Am" list, I suggest they
could subscribe for the duration of this debate and then unsubscribe at any
future point. It is quite easy to do.

Could the Moderators please confer and then make a recommendation ??

Thanks,

Pete Hayselden

EVERYONE...
Please can we keep this all on one list the main list or it will get too
confusing. I repeat it is important to know what the issues are, bill before
writing a diatribe. Do you know who the other board members are? do you
know what their levels of expertise are? do you have any idea what the split
is about? do you know what prompted andy to resign? lets find out the facts
before we start slinging mud around. You elected all the board
members...NOW LISTEN TO WHAT *THEY* ALL HAVE TO SAY BEFORE TAKING UP A RIGID
STAND and then let us all decide. Opinions are great when they are
well-informed ones....charlie
