The Chairman Resigns

The majority of the Exec has chosen to ignore the processes laid out in the MoU with ISAF-RSD and take a different course of action regarding the technical resolutions that require ratification. The public conversations on this forum should leave people in no doubt as to the issues I’m talking about.

I have stated publically, and privately, that I will not condone action that fails to comply with the IOMICA – RSD agreement in this manner and feel I have no choice but to resign my position as IOMICA Chairman effective immediately.

It is regrettable that my term as Chairman ends on such a sour note, I wish the Exec well in finding a suitable way forward.

Andy, I would like to express the appreciation of the NCA for AUS for the work you have undertaken on our behalf and whilst I appreciate that as Chairman you had no option other than to hold to IOMICA's undertaking in respect of the MOU it is sad that a previously strong and active organisation in RSD has been brought to its knees by a Permanent Committee who have little regard for the organisation's constitution.

I hope that IOMICA can rise above this and that a solution can be brokered to resolve the current rules impasse. I don't believe that accepting an offer for ISAF to approve the changes is a solution at this time.

Good wishes for the future.

Andy, today is a very sad day for the IOM community. I want to thank you for all your time and dedication trying to get always the best for the class.

Andy, you are indeed an honourable man, many would just have rolled with the punches.
On behalf of my fellow IOM owners in Holland, I thank you for the work that you have put for IOMICA and your support for the owners. You will be missed.

Thanks a lot Andy for all the work done in the past years.

I hope other Exec guys will eventually understand why you resign...

It doesn't appear that we have one at the moment.
