    Sounds like a small step in the right direction. Hopefully we will hear similar news about the ED.

    Re- instated member May 17, 2013

    My vacation will now consist of 6 days in Baton Rouge as a volunteer for the National Taxidermist. I need 200 just from my friends alone to join me.

    We will remember the past which will help us build a future. Lets do this together and show we were right and there is a simple, educating way to build a National Organization.

    I've waited 3 years for this day, I knew it would come. At the same time I will be humble to those that totally opposed me, there is no anger in my heart...... now lets do this $hit!

  6. Michael P that is terrific!!!!! It was our family's goal for anyone wanting to become a member that the opportunity would be allowed. Finally, a step in the right direction. Btw....does the same hold true for Fred, Harry, and Tim?

    All former members have been reinstated. Fred, Harry, Michael, and all others. Party in the streets. Don't know about myself yet, but still I am happy for my friends. This was never about me. Still isn't and will never be, but so happy that the board has moved in the right direction. Now maybe I can get back to work in my shop. LOL Thanks to all who worked on this and especially the BOD.

    Part of the deal was once corrected at whatever cost, the rebuilding would begin. So be it. Lets begin preparing for the BIGGEST NTA convention ever.

    The list was added after my post.

    My understanding was member management was Cindy Crain

    I have been told Greg Crain has been fired so that is more than a small step, that's a giant leap for taxidermists everywhere.

    This is great news! Let the rebuilding begin! May the scars heal and the organization become stronger than ever. Congrats to all.

    Even if Crains has been fired, resigned, removed, or whatever, they still needs to be prosecuted for theft and mis-management of NTA funds and whatever else was done.
