Does the MMBA leadership do enough to post for these positions? I don't think so. I think you've done a great job as membership director but i don't remember the job being posted. Same for CPS director. Dennis kicks ass at it but here again, did he answer a posting for the job or did he raise his hand when the position was coming open?
This group needs to know that help is needed before anyone can even consider offering to help. Are all of these jobs being done begrudgedly?
..and I sure as *beep* didn't think I was voting for people that would hand over the keys without fighting for our organization. Where's the fight?
Personally, I'm quite insulted that you think we haven't fought. You are personally friends with at least 3 people on the board and I'd expect you might have a bit more respect for us and our passion to think that we'd just toss this out there without thinking any of it through.
NO ONE on the current state board is thinking of this as a "get out of jail free" card. This is not something that any of us has embraced without skepticism and it is not an idea that just popped into our head one day. This is a conversation that has been floating around the state board for at least 3 years, but I think its more like 5 years now.
I have been pouring my soul, my sweat, my tears and my time into this organization for nearly 8 years now and suddenly its inferred that I'm lazy, incompetent and just overlooking an obvious solution. The implication is, those of us who have stepped up, who have donated our time and energy, we don't care as much as the rest of you.
I'm so glad to know that your input into this is that you now regret your voting decision. Thanks.
