After reading the information that was sent out by our president on Friday, I was very alarmed and dismayed. I do not believe that much consideration has been given to the rest of the state in regards to the convention. For the last five or six years now the convention has been in one part of the state.
As for the rest of us in this part of the state and throughout, we again are going to have to travel two more years to that central location in Ohio. In my own opinion, I do not feel as though this is fair. More individuals would like to attend the convention who are not members And often ask if the convention will be in this part of Ohio. Once again, I have to tell them know!

I apologize for not being on the call this last week. However, I am not a board member. But, I am a vocal part of this organization. And I speak for those who generally cannot speak for themselves or do not have the funds to attend the convention.

I do believe that the Board is generally fair and so far I tend to stand behind most of your decisions. But, this time I really do believe that only a small circle are making the decisions not giving much regard to the rest of the organization. The Cleveland chapter, Cuyahoga chapter, Lake chapter, Akron chapter, Toledo chapter and other chapters should be given the opportunity to provide a proposal to host such an event.

this is my comment and I am not asking for a rebuttal, or attacking anyone.  I am just passionate about the fact that in my opinion, we are being divided by demographics and economics.  Disarmed!!
