[quote=jshrack;82414]While I agree that Jon is a good choice, his selection was mired by the Board.
If you want to get into technicalities... the vote to institute Jon as F.C. was not done according to the charter.
The charter specifically says that a quorum is needed for a board vote, I only count 3 votes that were cast, this is not a quorum.
The Board never let Jeff Crum vote, they took 3 votes for Jon and called it good.
Jeff tried to give his input and was told that the subject was settled.
The Board didn't have 4 members to vote on the subject, as a result they did not have a quorum and had no right to vote.
This point alone invalidates the whole process.
The board undercut the charter to get things done it's way.
Not making time to allow club input doesn't help the perspective.
I am sorry if this sounds like a rant but the situation still hasn't been addressed to the club, therefore this was the ONLY means of starting a discussion.
If we are not able to voice our input as club members the association seems kinda pointless...
I'm not sure where you are getting your information, but you are mistaken.
Board members that where present: Jeff Crum, Gordy Crafts, Bob Perrewe, Kevin Sakus.
2/3 of 6 is 4. A vote no, or simply withholding your vote does not remove you from the quorum. As far as our charter goes, it was done as the member approved charter states. It could possibly have been done differently. I understand wanting to have more member input. But at the same time, no one has objected to me as f.c. just how it was done. The majority of the board felt (as i said in my statement to the board) that getting someone into the position before a hard freeze was in the best interest of the club. Getting rolling before a hard freeze enables us to get the last few major projects dealt with a.s.a.p. Our courses will be in better shape next spring. Our attention can than be directed toward people's park, and possibly sekani that much quicker.
Jeff was defiantly given the opportunity to vote, and he did. He gave his opinion, and was heard. As will happen from time to time not everyone will agree as to the best course of action. Thats why we have the system of a vote.
Trust me, the concern from some of our members over how the appointment was made was heard after the last member meeting. Justin you where siting there talking with gordy, bob, and myself after the meeting had adjourned. Face to face with us you said that (paraphrase) even though you would like to have seen it done differently, you understood why it was done, and approved of my appointment. We chatted about a few topics and I thought that we had a good and productive chat. I am quite frankly disappointed in the way that this is playing out.
I am not the first board member to be replaced on the sdga board, due to vacancy. Precedent, and the charter where followed as far as the board appointing the new member to the board.
In the future if there is a vacancy on the board, I'm sure that we will again consider how to handle the replacement in the best interest of the club a.k.a. our existing courses, endeavors, and upcoming projects.
