I posted this at the bottom of another thread, but felt it would get buried, so I'm reposting here and adding some context.
In September 2012, KBOO Board President SW Conser, aka Conch, spent several thousand dollars of KBOO money on legal fees without authorization.
He did so claiming an immediate need to rectify a situation, that actually turned out to need no action.
I called the boards attention to the misuse of funds several months ago. The Board Governance committee planned to investigate.
It was evident at the April KBOO Board Meeting that the findings would be discussed in executive session and it was apparent that the KBOO Governance Committee found fault with Conch's story and explanation.
After the KBOO Board went into executive session, the Board emerged to have one director make a motion to remove Conch from the board. The motion did not receive a second. My experience with the board would indicate that folks realized the votes were not there to remove Conch from the board and felt no need to take a losing vote for the sake of it.
There was no motion to remove Conch from the presidency or to ask him to repay the several thousand dollars.
I plan to follow up at the next board meeting.
Let the outrage ensue.
