<< So, among the mentioned "intentions", you asked for inputs on item 6. My
 input is a simple observation that there are three people on the Board,
 who had the opportunity to vote on policies which "could", under some
 circumstances, benefit them personally at the expense of others. These
 people are Bob Solberg, Jim Wilkins and Sandra Straka Wilkins. If they
 voted "for" the IAC, they are establishing or influencing a market
 environment where one "Preferred Grower"(Green Hill Farms, for example
 and his business accociates) may have a comparative advantage over
 another grower(s)  who is not able to be a Preferred Grower. Since Bob
 Solberg is marketing several of your new hosta introductions, this has
 the possible "appearance"  to some people of a conflict of interest.
 There is certainly nothing wrong with you, President of AHS, marketing
 your hostas through a grower of your choice. But there may be the
 appearance of something not quite appropriate for these same people
 voting or even influencing others  in adopting policies which may hurt
 other participants in the hosta marketplace and not hurt yourself. >>
