FYI, VPA is not in scope for this 990 discussion, not sure why that was posted. The VPA is it's own entity, files it's own taxes, and net profits are provided to the VCA as a distribution to shareholders (as VCA is 100% shareholder of VPA). But it is a for-profit company with it's own rules. Again, the VPA was started in 2010, it's there, it's cool, I frankly don't understand the Adrian post, but I assume that it has something to do with his name being on the VCA FY12 990. Which makes me again point out that this is not malicious, the 990 has these darn names, you were gonna see em on page 8, so not sure why this has the hornet's nest all stirred up, it was gonna get published... (or wait, was this the REAL reason the VCA should have burned?? So this 990 would never come to light? Whoops, sorry if that's your intent, the members deserve to know what happened to their money). We should delete the post as it way off topic, but it's serves as (weird) reminder of kind of attention we get when we try to fix things and communicate here. Adrian, we thank you for your service to the VCA, we understand your reasons for leaving, but please understand we tried to save it rather than destroy it, which we felt had the obligation to do.
