"In Reply to: ACNA election is tainted - recall it! posted by AudiZilla on 2008-10-24 12:55:07

Golden gate has Gordon as a candidate.
In the QQ on page 82 chapter news there is no mention of their candidate running for the ACNA election.

The Potomic / Chesapeake chapter makes no mention of Charlie Prietz, their candidate.

Glacier Lakes doesn't promote Kent in their Chapter News........

Even Alan in the Canada East report doesn't mention his candidacy.

So lets look at the NEQ (Northeast on page) 84:

"I would like to encourage all our members to vote in the national board of director elections.

We are excited to have Bruce Bradigan and Alan Bellavance running for national director seats.

These two candidates have helped guide the NEQ and Canadian Chapters over the years as board members, eventmasters, and volunteers.

They will bring extensive business backgrounds and experience in chapter development and non - profit governance to the national board. Please vote for these two candidates.

&lt;snip next paragraph&gt;
-Art Mayhew"

This is using National resources to promote their TWO candidates, each from different regional chapters. Last time I checked, NEQ was VT,NY and CT only.

Things are piling up here........"

Default So, here is my opinion.

I personally don't see anything wrong with what the NEQ did in promoting candidates in the QQ.

Default Why not?

There are many chapters that do not have any candidates running. Why shouldn't a chapter be able to promote one or more candidates that they believe will help this club?

Default Because the Executive Director says that you can't.

Or, at least she did when she didn't like the candidate. Apparently, if she does like them, she'll print it in the QQ.

There was a big to-do over using ACNA resources to promote candidates that were not from your chapter. Craig Leichty was soundly chastened for doing so, even though it turned out that he hadn't used any ACNA resources to do so.

So, is negative campaigning allowed?

If there were questionable activities by any of the candidates that came to light, would that be considered campaigning?

Default My opinion is that any chapter should be able to endorse any candidate.

You may disagree with me, that is your right.

Default Ok, I just see your answers as skirting the real issue. You still going to be anonymous?

We can disagree, that's fair, but to me its a cop out on your part to just toss the "we disagree" card.

It doesn't answer anything.

If you don't want to forward actual e-mails
Not list your sources
Remain anonymous, that's your right.

I feel credibility IMHO, to what you say, is greatly diminished.

Offering the "other side" for discussion could be productive.

Can that chapter use National club resources like the QQ to endorse/promote any candidate?
