Re: TB: TBIS News

From: DWiris@aol.com

Hi all,

I attended the AIS Board Meeting in Denver, and went to all the formal
meetings, as President of the Median Iris Society Section.  Those who were not
there did not hear the many subjects that were discussed--most of them dealing
with how to better serve the AIS membership.  The Directors were all concerned
with doing the best job they could for the society.  There were a few
disagreements about the best way to accomplish some goals, but this will
happen in any group.  I was not privy to any "secret meeting" in someone's
hotel room, but what was said about the TBIS in the open meetings was not
derogatory and a committee was appointed to work out the details with TBIS.
There, also, was a committee appointed to explore the best relationships
between AIS and the sections.  As far as who becomes a board member, in
addition to the official nominating committee, there is a procedure for people
to be nominated by petition.  If someone really feels they are being
overlooked for consideration to serve on the board, they can use this method.
It has been done before.  Also, they can let the nominating committee know
that they are available.  Directorships are not just honorary positions, but
require that a person be willing to spend time, effort and money to perform
needed work.  I know how hard many of the board members work for the AIS, and
I just couldn't let the criticisms go by unanswered.
