    Martin Jaeger, RIP

    I just had a phone call from Wilf Ferner, former CFC Executive member, passing on the sad news that former CFC President, Martin Jaeger (Toronto) passed away this morning. His obituary will be in the...

    Reading between the lines, I think Nikolay is asking whether more than one person reviewed the voting. When we held in-person meetings there would always be two people counting the votes.

    I think the complete list of Governors was published on the CFC web site, until the NFP act. As I mentioned before, we have been directed not to share this list. I think in future years if Candidates...

    Now that I don't agree with. Some people might wonder how you know that. If you can see who voted, then that information should be public.

    Well, I think that most of the VM's who attend the meeting will vote, especially this year when there is a hot race for President. What is more surprising is that we have 47 VM's attending the...

    I'm not so sure that having the results of the voting available while the election is going on is the best way of doing business, but in a sense it mirrors Federal elections. However campaigning...

    I will try to get Lyle to post a list of all of the VM's who joined the meeting before the meeting is over. I think there were another 20 or so after the first list. It looks like at least 90% of the...

    I investigated this option with the Convention Centre we're playing in at Thanksgiving - even with only 25-40 players, the load would be too much on their Internet. Probably a big hotel might be more...

    Thanks for your tireless work in this portfolio, that is often so difficult to fill. Don't forget that you can form a Youth Committee, if you find you need help.

    Certainly the Voting Members should have transparency in those cases where any action is taken. In this case no action was taken. While the majority of the Executive voted for an action, President...

    A committee that was established 15 years ago and never once formed, leaves some question as to it's validity without a re-vote of some sort. In light of recent concerns of lawsuits, it might be...

    Yes, there should have been an explanation on that. You should be able to multiply by .833 to get a more accurate figure of memberships actually purchased during the fiscal year.
