The BAKG-- A SECRET SOCIETY.

When DID the BAKG become a SECRET ORGANIZATION?

We used to have a regular schedule --you knew months in advance about the programs schedule.
Look at calendar of Meeting over on the The BAKG web site.
Months of TBA’s.

Nothing on the schedule except ‘the 5 preplanned meeting’.
(January/Auction, April/Retreat/, July/Charity Knitting, September/Luncheon, December/Charity knitting.)

A calendar filled with TBA’s.
I guess the MEETING EVENTS ARE SECRET!
(or maybe Madam President is so busy lining her pockets with BAKG money, she has no time to plan anything (and perhaps no money to pay speakers?) )

We USED TO HAVE Regular issues of CityPurls, and they contained Minutes from Board meetings (frequently 2 sets of minutes!) Now, Fewer issues of CityPurls, and no Minutes printed (since Jan/Feb issue!)
(oops I forgot, there haven’t been board meetings in months, or if there have been, they are SECRET!)

We USED TO HAVE Treasurers reports too. REMEMBER the By Laws?
The BAKG ByLaws REQUIRE
(not suggest, but require) that the members receive an Annual Treasurers Report. Have you received it?
NO, IT IS, and REMAINS A SECRET.

But then, We USED TO HAVE A BOARD that Adhered to the By-Laws.
Not anymore. Now Board members act like DICTATORS.
They think they are above the law.

There is no Record of what the Board has done is, is planning to do. This open communication is a thing of the past, too.
(and SECRET to boot!)

You can read the ByLaws. (well members can!) they are posted on the Yahoo BAKG BB. (OR should I say they were? Will that document be ‘removed’? (other documents, links and post are either removed or never see the light of day.)

The YAHOO BB EXIST only to say “nice things” NO CRITIZISM or COMPLAINTS allowed.
If Board members fail to adhere to ByLaws, we must not mention it on Yahoo site!

The Board (or MEMBERS) of the Board act as if the BAKG was their personal possession.
They act as if, members have no RIGHTS to any information.

They act as if BAKG Moneys was their money.
THEY ARE WRONG.
Enough of the SECRETS.
SHOW US OUR MONEY.
We want an Audit!

If the little problem with kickbacks from the speakers had been known,she would never have been elected. Secrets are very harmful to a group like the BAKG.

Let's start a new guild.
Claire has single-handedly ruined bakg.
She'll walk around with that label for the rest of her life. She's so desperate for bakg money.
Hopefully, any money she takes or skims will go towards her doctor bills!
