>> Greetings and welcome to the Florida Repeater Discussion List,
>> I am Bryan Fields, W9CR.  
>> I’m involved in amateur radio in the Tampa Bay area, with membership in four local clubs and chairman of the Technical Committee for my local group.
>> Professionally I am a Network Architect with a major telecom company.  I’ve been a licensed amateur since 1995 (over 2/3 of my life), hold a GROL+Radar and have a background in cellular/microwave networks.
>> Fellow Amateurs, the FRC is an organization run amuck.  Incompetent directors are managing it, flouting the bylaws, violating Florida Law, and ignoring member needs.  I am asking for your proxy for the upcoming FRC meeting.
>> It has failed in its ability to coordinate operations of amateur radio repeaters in the following ways:
>> Remove the current directors for gross incompetency and exposing the organization to liability:
>> Ray Kassis, N4LEM
>> Dana Rodakis, K4LK
>> (Glenn) Mike Fletcher, NI4M
>> Chuck Lavender, W4CLL
>> Demand new elections for existing directors in compliance with the bylaws.
>> Establish a bylaw committee to rewrite the bylaws and change the organization structure to better serve all amateurs in Florida.
>> Establish a development process for new policies from the membership
>> Encourage input from the membership based on sound technical policies
>> De-centralize coordination by having a web enabled database be accessible to the public showing all history of an application through coordination.
>> No one person should be the gatekeeper of the database. Make all records of the FRC open to the public, as any non-profit serving the public interest must be.
>> I will make a motion to accomplish this at the next meeting at the Melbourne Hamfest meeting.   To make this happen, I am asking for your proxy, if you’re a member of the FRC.   You will need to print out this form and sign it, then send
>> a scan or legible picture of it to me via email or text message. If you can attend the meeting, please do so.
>> It’s $10 to become a member on the FRC website and it buys the right to have a say in the future of amateur radio in Florida.    
>> http://florida-repeaters.org/donate.htm
>> I fully expect to be shouted down by the board, but as members we cannot be ignored.  I wish to resolve this via the membership, but if ignored I do intend to comply the board, by any legal means, to follow the bylaws and FS 617.
>> I need your proxy by the Friday, October 7, 2016.  
>> 73’s and see you at Melbourne,
>>   Bryan Fields, W9CR
>> P.S. Please feel free to discuss this on list.  If you wish to not be a part of this discussion you can remove yourself using the link at the bottom.  I'm happy to oblige your wishes via direct email as well if you have any questions.
