Glad to see you finally respond to something, but you had to get pissed off before you did. This was not an answer to a question, this was a DAMN IT, STOP picking on me, response.
From your response it is very evident you have read other threads where questions have been posed to you. Threads where people get frustrated with off topic or no response. So you finally end up here pissing an moaning about how we feel about you and some of your actions or lack thereof.
Well whine whine whine. Step up to the plate and take responsibility for your actions. You are the self appointed leader of this association. You alone are where the buck stops. Until this organization forms itself with full voted leaders and develops set rules to govern those leaders YOU ARE IT, period. You know this and as it has not happened you must want it this way.
By dictating to the convention committee terms of complete control you once again took a dictatorship role.
Here we have typical corporate America management. I will do as I want and you better not piss about it. This association has a lot of VERY smart people, from a vast array of backgrounds. There are a good number asking good questions which you and others take offence at, refuse to answer, criticize, belittle or one of several other negative approaches.
When you say I Will, I Will, I AM, I AM so many times and nothing gets done people begin to diss-believe. When your response tends to be YELL, YELL, YELL what message are you sending?
Dictatorship implies one person with absolute final say. Who in this association can tell you NO. Who do you need to check with before tacking any action? Who is NACHI? That is simple - Nick is NACHI. It does not operate like a national association, it is not really recognized as a national association, But it should!
I believe, as do others that it is time for NACHI to grow and begin life as a nationally recognized association and operate as such. I needs to stand up and stop doing business behind closed doors. It needs to let its members know what is happening, when it is expected to happen, who is doing what and why, where it is going and how is it going to get there.
You brought us together. Now tell us why and what is going to happen. Stop jumping at us because we ask for answers. Stop blaming us if we make a wrong assumption based on the little info we are given. If we are making the wrong assumption who is to blame? US or the person giving us the info the assumption is based on?
Could I run an association such as this? I doubt it. Can one person run an operation such as this? Possibly but not very easily.
I have seen some good people leave this association in the short time I've been here. I've seen some banished for continually bashing this association. Both situations could have, should have been prevented.
One of the marketing tips says take a negative and turn it into a positive. Well bashing and attacks from outsiders was a negative NACHI simply chose to push away. Nothing positive for the association came out of it, but a negative did.
Good members had some issues and questions. Rather than addressing those issues directly those members finally left. How does that look?
Before anyone starts thinking get rid of Rob, Or Rob is whining I am simply stating the facts as they have been presented to me. I have simply asked questions others before me have asked, that went unanswered.
If this was a non-issue WHY are so many asking??????
Put another way. Why are some of you NOT asking??????
One last thought for those who are still reading to think about. IF NACHI closed its doors today, what would become of all its assetts? The servers, The newspaper, The unspent dues. Who would it all go to?
