You've been rather long winded about this Chris and it seems your demands
keep changing. SO just so I understand this you would like testimonies
from people who have been educated buy NFC programs ?

Chris I Havent been closed at all but 3-4 multi page letters per day is
more than I typically have to deal with so I'm a bit behind. You started
off replying to Mr Rogers question about is the NFC a conservation
organization. Then have gone off on several tangents. Some I followed
some i didn't . Now I understand you want to change the By laws. To what
end ? I hate to break the news to you but there is no long list of people
willing to put in the time and extra pocket change to do work locally let
alone nationally. So a single one year term to prove yourself as you put
it will only encourage those with an agenda like lets fire Mr. XYZ then
when they achieve their goal. Your argument is flawed on the one hand you
are claiming nothing is getting done ( i agree we need to do more) , Then
on the other hand you want shorter terms for board members to get things
time. If anything this type of 1 year or else mentality scares off
potential volunteers. Who would like to get grilled like this for
volunteering. You have called me Bill Clinton in your last note which is
certainly insulting and have called anyone who atmpts to answer your
questions juvenile. Your attitude has since the moment you got in on this

IMO you have an axe to grind so why don't you come out and say what it
is. Do you think I'm embezzling NFC funds? Do you think I'm an
incompetent person? Does the NFC need new leadership that you hope to
provide? Please quit beating around the bush. In a SHORT note let me know
what you want.
