A previously active member was voted as president-elect this past year. She was considered to have a strong outgoing personality and great leadership skills.
After being voted in as president-elect she was unable to attend the transition meeting due to competing priorities. Starting school, she requested the monthly meeting day be changed to accommodate her needs.
The board thought this would be too confusing to members since they had had the same time/place for the past 10 years. She stated she understood and would find a way to work it out, but never attended one meeting all year long.
She also failed to return phone calls, emails and texts. She did contact the board about attending LDW/NTI and her "stipend" for attending.
The president arranged two meetings with her (she picked the time/date) and she failed to show up. The president sent her a registered email stating they needed to talk ASAP.
After finally talking to her, but only briefly, the president-elect insisted on being president next year and she was committed to the chapter stating that she has been an active member for the past three to five years and it is her time. It is two days prior to LDW.
