Default Goichberg, Channing and Schultz are in it with Lafferty, Bogner and Quinn

I was physically present at the Executive Board meeting. Mr. Bogner,
Mr. Payne, Mr. Hanken, Mr. Nolan and board members saw me in the room.
I spoke twice but mostly listened.

It is highly unusual to see a committee vote unanimously one way and
to have the Executive Board vote unanimously the other way. Needless
to say, the Board vote makes matters very difficult for the members of
the committee.

I can clearly say that the Board's vote was based largely on Mr.
Channing's recollection of communication he had with Mr. Quinn.
Implicit in this communication was an understanding that a mistake was
made and an agreement to avoid the same mistake in the future. While
this is nice and dandy in principle, the Executive Board members, e.g.
Mr. Channing, do not spend time daily reading and reviewing complaints
on the Forum. How then can the Executive Board know that the implied
agreement is being held? And how can the Executive Board ensure that
the committee works together after such a divisive action?

I didn't realize it at the time, but it is clear to me today that the
Executive Board's vote achieves only one goal: to destroy the Forum
Oversight Committee, or at minimum to start anew from scratch. I
understand this is what some members of this Forum have long sought to
achieve. Congratulations!

Michael Aigner
