Who's they? "they removed him from the board". They who? There were two board meetings prior to August. One meeting was held in Detroit in Jan (Tim was in attendance). A second board meeting, conference call, was held in May. Tim was not on the call. The board was never informed that Tim either quit the board or was removed. He simply evaporated from the board. No board action was taken to remove him and I've never seen a resignation from Tim while on the board. The board never had Tim or his letter as a discussion topic until last month. Whoever "they" are is not the board. We'll never get the true story because it would have to come from the ex-national president. Whatever "action" "they" took was done outside of the national board and not per the by laws. Which is not a surprise and common practice unfortunately. The national board meeting minutes for the January 17th board meeting shows Tim in attendance as a board member.
