Have you noticed that there seems to be a very strong leadership presence in our “democratic” organization? You don’t hear from two of the eight board members , Deb Granite and Jim Venskus, much anymore, and it isn’t easy to find our contact information.
Today, the Cyberline had a request for you to send your concerns, etc. to our new board President, Andy Lingras, at a brand new address. This new address also appears on the last page of the February Spotlight. He also shared with you his “personal” goals that include making the part of dues that fund grants to the performing arts community optional.
What is the reason that you are being encouraged to circumvent our board of directors, and correspond with the newly elected Saints President directly?
Why does this board member have a direct communication line with the membership, but other board members are advised that it is a violation of confidentiality to correspond with Saints members about anything other than ushering?
How did this individual become the President, and how did each of the board members vote?
What is his past experience and what not for profit "business" did he work for during the seven years that is referenced in today’s Cyberline?
Why is this individual setting up a private mail box rather than encouraging people to share their views and concerns with the board at large?
Why isn't this individual utilizing the forum capabilities on Club Express (it was used to solicit tributes for BJ)?
Remember to send all correspondence to the entire board of directors and not to a single individual. That way, you can be sure that your correspondence will be seen by the entire Saints Board of Directors.
