I asked that question as well Mike and although Kurt has that capability is seems there has never been a reason to do this by any MVCC president and because of that there is no medium to do that I found out. What I mean is Kurt does not have a check book. Also without the roster the money to print was useless. I received the roster May 8th.
I have asked about the minutes and actually the Sec/Treas sent me some minutes years back but refused to after this disagreement between the board members had started.
I have also heard at the last meeting that official minutes were taken that the minutes were not readable when a board member asked to have them read back for clarification. And I am not sure they were taken at the GMM or any meeting I have attended in an official capacity. I like others when the motion to remove the Sec/Treas was put on the table at Tower voted to table that and although it would be a solution I would be against that. So I waited like everyone else for the sec/Treas to cooperate and do the right thing and release the roster to the membership.
This is troubling but without drastic measures which everyone would rather not think about what else can we do?
I am a firm believer in the minutes being available for all members to see, not sure putting them in the public space is good, a car collecting club like ours should not have anything to hide and although I have only been to a couple of meetings I think the membership has the right to an open door policy.
Of course that’s my opinion. I hate both hidden agendas and politics. And just for the record Mike you can ask me anything you like just please speak your mind openly and I will answer the same way.
One thing the I think many forget is everyone serving currently on the board are car collectors and regular MVCC members as well and not politicians or even certified Parliamentarians.
I know now from the GMM and I have been told Dave Palmerlee is a certified Parliamentarian and has represented himself and acted officially at our meeting as such but as far as I know he is the only official board member now past board member with that experience. And so we do the best we can.
This is why I asked Dave to just ask his questions without all the rhetoric and innuendo.
So just ask your questions if I can answer them I will.
