Dear members and staff,
On May 7th, 2006 I will have proudly served you as Executive Director for one year. It is my decision to resign from that position effectively on that date. It has been an extreme pleasure serving you and only desire continued success for the membership and association. My decision to resign has not been easy. But the lack of communication and cooperation was the final determining factor. I applaud each of you that have graciously volunteered your time and expertise to the association and its membership and look forward to hearing and reading great things in the future about each one of you. In conclusion I must point-out particularly bothersome things that I strongly feel that NACHI needs to improve on in the future.
I find it a total dictatorship situation when one person/group authors the Standards of Practice and ethics guidelines, and is then assigned the duties as Judge, Jury, and Executioner.
Lack of communication amongst the staff and leadership. Too often I ran into a situation where several individuals or groups were working on the same things. A good example of this would be the CMI program. At one point and time I believe there were at the very least 3 or 4 individuals and groups working on this. It’s an absolute shame and travesty that this program did not remain under the control of NACHI.
No set procedures or guidelines for the committees. To the best of my knowledge the only committees that have any type of guidelines are the Awards Committee and the NACHI Library. The current education committee is trying to establish guidelines, but is meeting resistance and dictatorship from the leadership. I only wish them well in their endeavors.
Thank-you members and staff for your support.
