they had - effectively 'stolen the organization' from the membership (by
the amendment right issue).
Remember, Kelly (and I think it was LaMothe) FORGED a change in the
bylaws (i.e. no motion, no vote, no permanent record) - putting the
amendment right in the hands of the Board (this AFTER the Jan /94 Board
meeting in New Orleans).
OK, 'claims' they'll fix things -- appoint a committee to 'review and
rewrite' the bylaws. Was to be presented to the members in Orangeburg
(when Kaplow was axed). They PRINTED a copy 'for review' - with the
notice that the lawyer was needing to 'look things over' and they would
have a vote later.
That vote never came (til this day). Which means - they are STILL
operating under the 'doctored' bylaws they illegally changed there in
'94 (Feb-April time frame).
As has happened several times before -- they 'jump and run' when the
members get all hot - but, once the emotional fervor dies down, it's
right back to the status quo.
Remember, that bylaw change in the spring of '94 was just simply
*rewritten* - not even the semblance of a motion - not even the
semblance of a vote (by ANYone - BoD OR members) - NOTHING that even
remotely coincides with either 1) their own bylaws or 2) established
parliamentary procedure - nothing.
It's as bad as the fraudulent motor certs.
Stacked against change? Well -- this 'membership' corporation is NOT a
'membership' corporation - it is totally controlled by those 9 'doods'.
Speculation? I wonder, if the 'heat' got high enough, if we'd see
them 'show their hand' and REALLY take the coporation.
With the scum that Rogers and Kelly are known to be - there *has to be
something* that is keeping them 'holding the reins' in this org.
Jerry mentioned it -- Alaska allows the members to file for 'involuntary
dissolution' - it might be the only way to 'unseat' this 'tick'.
