Organizational Issues

From: Bill Van F.
Sent on: Saturday, June 6, 2009 1:06 AM
I am requesting that our members review the topic Our Forum Ethics. I have had Steve as an assistant organizer for a long time, and I have appreciated his help. However, I do not feel comfortable with a decision to remove a member from the group being made by anyone but me, and I think that there needs to be clarification of that issue by our group before it is true in our group again that someone other than I would be in a position to make such a decision. In this case, I was surprised when it happened, and I would not have taken such action myself. Steve may be the wiser of the two of us, but I think there are profound philosophical and ethical issues involved that all of us should assume some responsibility for.

I hope and assume that Steve will understand that I am not disapproving of him and that I have valued him as assistant organizer, and that my concern is more about the ethics of our group organizational procedures, for which I am ultimately responsible by virtue of being the Organizer of our group.

I thank you all, and hope to see you Sunday.
