All everyone has to do is calm down. Where were all of you when the Crains didn't disclose ANYTHING? Where were you past Board members when you had the power to demand information?? George, now that you don't have your 'connections' is seems that you are 'pissed' when you don't get what you ask for!! Why didn't you DEMAND information when you sat on the Board and come on this site and let everyone know what was up??? Now, everyone wants to beat up the very people that are actually trying to get this thing where it will at least float!!! I say you need to back off and let them do their job!!! Think about it for a second, look at this time line, May- The Board moves to remove the Crains for any one of a MILLION reasons. June- With NOTHING to work with as far as information the Board prepares for a convention. Remember, no working set of books, no membership list, NO NOTHING July- Miraculously, the Board pulls off a basically flawless Convention considering the hurdles that they had to jump. The Board also accepts new accounting internal controls as well as restructuring controls. Voted on unanimously and passed. August- Under direction from the President, NOTHING voted on by the Board is executed. Friction between those that are trying to help, Board members and the interim ED and President erupt. Still, nothing gets done. September- Still, nothing voted on by the Board is executed. The President engages the NTA attorney without Board approval in an attempt to acquire information from Pat Patrick. The President also approves WITHOUT BOARD APPROVAL payment to the interim ED of $4000+. The interim ED produces ZERO reports on the finances of the NTA. The President and Secretary Treasurer announce their resignation effective October 1. October- STILL, nothing is executed. Mitch Webb takes over as President with no Treasurer, no Secretary, and now, no ED as Joe Kulis announces his resignation at the same time as John Janelli, in retrospect. Mitch Webb scrambles to stop the bleeding and makes appointments to fill the voids. November- with deer season (yes deer season George) and the busiest time of the year for taxidermists looming, Mitch and Company work to get the banks lined out with basically zero help from the past ED or the past treasurer. A financial report is requested and still no one knows how much money is in the bank. Mitch finally gets control of the accounts in the latter part of this month but not in time to acquire the needed information for me to complete the books so they can be turned over to the CPA of their choice to prepare the 990's. This information was requested many times from the past interim ED to no avail. CURRENTLY- Mitch and the Board are still waiting on the banks to deliver the requested information so that I may complete the books for the NTA. There is a discrepancy in the amount of money we have and the information from the banks will clear that up. This is a synopsis of what I have been associated with. Since I have not been involved in the lawsuits to this point I cannot comment on that subject. Now you want to beat up on Mitch for not coming on here and spilling his guts. Looks to me like his plate has been pretty full so I say leave them alone until all of the holes are at least plugged and the ship is floating.....Just my opinion...!
