IMPORTANT MESSAGE TO MEMBERS:
During our most recent Annual Training Conference an election was held in order to elect members to the LAAI Executive Board. Upon completion of the election a formal grievance was received stating that one of the candidates elected to office was unqualified to run based on our Bylaws. As it turns out this complaint was with merit causing one of the current elected board members to be removed from office without prejudice.
The "Executive Board" was presented with several options but felt the best option was to follow the bylaws and appoint someone to fill the vacated position until the next scheduled election which will be at next years ATC. Former President Buddy Smith was asked and accepted the interim position on the board.
For a full explanation of what transpired, please click this link to the report from Richard Jones, Chairman, LAAI Grievance Committee.
I would like to thank the members of the LAAI for first electing me as a Board of Director in 2007 and by continuing to show your Trust & Confidence in me to assist with moving the Chapter forward as the 2014-2015LAAI President. I have been fortunate enough to work alongside some Amazing Members of this Chapter as well as from around the Country.
