I want to thank RAC Honorary Legal Counsel Marcel Mongeon, VA3DDD, and James R. Hay, VE2VE, (and BTW James what are you doing with RAC these days as I don’t see your name and photo in the TCA executive/director page. Last time we were on the leadership team together we were disagreeing on how to run a functioning blog for the association) for their insightful comments about the issue involving the removal of the last regulatory affairs officer.
Of course I always have some quibble with executives who think they can fire someone (a volunteer) who they’ve not actually hired but let’s not mutter about semantics.
The reason the last regulator affairs officer left as been the speculated up at length in emails and thoughts posted on other blogs and this situation begs an explanation.
So I have been in contact with the gentleman involved and I have offered him the opportunity to respond on this blog and I await his decision and will honour it.
But I hasten to suggest our issues are not about what may or may not have happened in this single incident.
No I am much more interested in what may or may not be a systemic problem that is besieging our national association and one which is creating great pain and upset among many long-time RAC members.
