SI Finland NC statement:
It is truly sad that the organisation we love has found itself in a situation where trust, transparency and long-term leadership have been replaced by bickering, self-interest, political blockades and a semblance of democracy.
The questions are many:
- Why are we rushing ahead of a big decision?
- Does everyone understand the consequences?
- Why have two board members voted against the proposal put forward to the EOAGA?
- Why has the CEO, hired to reform the organisation and build a long-term strategy, been sidelined and the entire staff micro-managed?
On the contrary, would it not make more sense to maximize the utilization of these resources that already account for the bulk of our annual budget – the General Secretariat and the CEO – instead of increasing the size of the Board – and hence the expenditure?
Finnish Skål clubs will vote “No” in EOAGA.
