    I agree... Any member should expect that!

    No. Why should a Director from outside your area need to interact with you?

    ...because they represent the board in a member-based non-profit, irrespective of their assigned 'location'. Are you saying I shouldn't be watching this video...because I am from New England?

    I've noticed that comment - online and off - seems to have simmered down with regard to the ARRL Code of Conduct snafu. Yet, according to Dick, very little has changed and the "gag rule" is still in effect. Are hams still pushing to fix the governance of the club before it runs completely off the rails?

    I don't think there has been any change in the attitude/direction of the ARRL, they are just sitting back and letting the time pass.

    Unfortunately, if transparency is not increased, the major donors will continue to withhold funds and renege on prior commitments, at least that's my opinion based on the impression I got. Yours may differ..

    I thought Dick's video was very transparent AND factual. I didn't hear anything in it on an 'ax to grind'.

    Just so everyone knows, I talked with K1KI, the NE director, and he said the 'transparency' message came across loud and clear to the board.

    So, let them do their job, now that the issue has been brought to their attention ...in spades.

    We have entered the "Phoney War" . Where both sides are not quite ready to take each other on, they're simply stockpiling political ammunition ,laying verbal mine fields ,and making plans to outflank each other in the coming months. Culminating in a victory in October for one side or the other.

    The only thing that has changed is that Mr. Lisenco is no longer trying to hide his agenda, and Mr. Norton is also freer to speak his mind in public, knowing that he has the support of the donors etc. The important thing is to replace the Problem Directors, especially in the Hudson Division. I mean this *strictly* metaphorically, but ...we need to kill the head of the snake.

    Im not convinced that there is only one head . Having seen this behavior before in another 501/503 his agenda may not be the only thing thats going on . Its been ~15 years and it still ain't over. This stuff could go on for a long time. It may never end.
