    RE: [RC] Starts - John A. Teeter

    Yikes!! a disagreement:)
    I don't think the AERC Board is necessarily required to take any action with
    respect to the situation. It would be difficult to find a place in the
    bylaws or rules that specify that the Board will act in the manner you
    describe in the situation at hand.
    Additionally, there is no way for a member to force the board to take any
    particular action. I also don't think that the BoD acting as a unit, has any
    particular need to initiate a special P&G gathering of facts for the purpose
    of proceeding with whaterver acts the P&G think are appropriate.
    The way one would initiate the P&G action you describe is for a member (any
    member in good standing, including those pesky day members I think) to,
    within the structure and procedures described in Rule 15, file a protest. At
    that point, all that you describe would happen.
    I don't see the direct need for the BoD to go around existing protest
    I also don't think the broad claim that members of the AERC Board of
    Directors,  by failing to do as you describe, are showing distain for the
    AERC Bylaws, Rules, and Regulations.
    Rather, if they were to followed your suggestion to initiate some action
    with P&G directly,  NOT allowing the normal protest procedures to be used,
    they would be showing a lack of confidence in the very organizational
    structures you mention.

      I must disagree with you an this a bit.
      As I see it there is no need for a protest as two prominent Ride Managers
    have admitted they have actually been involved in such actions. This alone
    could be an assumption that others, not as forthright, have and will
    continue to enter into such violations.
      With this information at hand and in the public domain, it behooves the
    AERC Board of Directors to instruct the P&Z Committee to gather the facts
    and proceed with what ever acts are necessary.
      The BoD, if they ignore these incidents, is acknowledging that they do not
    care about the AERC Rules and Regulations, they do not care to function as
    leaders of the organization and will appear to have abrogated their
    responsibilities in favor of having some individual member appear foolish in
    front of the entire organization.
