The FRC members meeting was simply disgusting this year.
First the meeting was held about 1/2 mile away from the normal location in a smaller area than in all years prior.
The Board refused to let anyone anyone other than themselves speak and I demanded to speak based on the assembled crowd. After Mike Felcher relented to the overwhelming support I started to talk through our issues. At this time the other board member, N0XIA called the police saying we were not allowing the board to work and >20 people were in the room per the fire code. I made the demand that this is a members meeting and we are bound by Roberts rules of order, to which Mike Fletcher insisted this was only a board meeting (it’s the annual members meeting).
I then called a point of order that there is not a quorum present and as the members have never elected the board. One of the members has the gall to insist he was elected in 1990 and has been re-appointed ever since! Simply put they were wrong.
I made a motion to remove the board members and they would not even call the question. This is against the rules.
Further on in the board meeting the unelected board amended the bylaws to remove all the members from the corporation! So if you were a member before, you’re not now! These people are sick, and will be made to answer for this in court. As of now, the FRC has no members and is simply an unelected board.
Dana is avoiding service on behalf of the cooperation too. What they have done is unconscionable and reprehensible.
I can say they have no legal authority to operate anymore and if you see the board members ask them to account for their actions. This is truly the worst of the worst in amateur radio today. What’s most concerning is these board members are involved as board members in other clubs, certainly calling into account their actions in that capacity.
I’m working on the video upload to youtube.
