Well it happened again, the Second Annual meeting of the 3 Originating Presidents of Gender Mosaic (Spanning 7 years) met on August 28 2015 at Monkeys Joes in Ottawa.
We talked, ate, had a white wine toast, reminisced old friends, and just caught up on each others current lives.
We spent some time discussing what has happened to Gender Mosaic and their was some discussion of trying to go back and help.
Wisely this was dismissed and a majority vote was reached, Gender Mosaic is the most Ineffective Transgendered Support Group in Canada.
As a result Gender Mosaic and the current Executive have been issued a Certificate by us to that effect.
Starting with Kelly’s illegal motion to have my Life Membership removed.
Item 1-No outstanding expenditures.
Item 2-All members of the Executive were re-acclaimed.
Item 3-Kelly Ann put a motion to have Judy removed as a lifetime member and a vote of Yea was passed by the Executive.
Followed by the Amanda/Sophips only way out while reaping $133,000.00 in profit from their Spring Fling event, to declare all Life memberships in-valid but those that one could keep them for 3 months ..What’s that about ?
“Lifetime memberships never existed in the GM bylaws.”
“Special memberships are clearly defined as people who cannot afford to pay a membership.”
“Previous executive did not have authority to issue lifetime memberships. The membership therefore concludes that lifetime memberships never existed (The membership never concluded and was not permitted to even vote) and as such the benefits of supposed lifetime memberships are null and void.”
“The benefits of supposed lifetime memberships will therefore expire at the end of 2013.”
“The membership has the option to propose amendments to bylaws to create lifetime memberships or other modifications at any future general meeting.”
“This item is not an item to be voted upon.”
The Membership where not permitted to vote and it was an edict of the Executive.
This is a group without direction and the present leadership ? of Janne Charbonneau, Kay Lockhart and Madeleine Grant do nothing to correct the failings of the former Executive.
A group going nowhere without direction or purpose, I have been ask when I will stop the information trial on GM the answer is simple….when they do the right thing.
