IACA 2022 Election Nominations
UPDATE ON MEMBER MANDATED GBM ON OCT 31, 2021
As you are aware, 137/138 members gave written ballots in supporting the both resolutions during the GBM held on 10/31/21.
 
Chairman Vir Nanda had originally supported idea of demanding President to cancel the member mandated GBM requested by 100 members, planned according to IACA bylaws.
 
Later he abstained from a voting to call the President to call off the GBM.
 
He was signatory to a letter demanding the President to inform members that member mandated GBM and the resolutions are invalid.
 
Then he attends GBM on 10/31/21 and presides over the GBM( which he had called invalid). He was aware of the rules of engagement that mail-in ballots will be counted towards the quorum. He adjourns the meeting citing lack of quorum and leaves the meeting. President continued the meeting. Members submitted ballots. Counting took place. 137/138 people endorsed the resolutions.
 
Now the Board(9 members) headed by Mr. Vir Nanda wants use IACA funds to serve a notice on the President. Board using an attorney to Threaten the President is ABUSE and MISUSE of Power. President has to fight with the board to seek for a legal opinion.
 
See the letter obtained by the Legal Committee Chair Ani Agnihotri from a local attorney (Names are omitted for confidentiality) –
Next, the Chairman presented minutes of the GBM in last night’s Board meeting. Board approves GBM meeting minutes. Minutes should be approved in the next GBM but not by the Board, where some of its members were not present and didn’t sign the attendance register. President has abstained from the voting.
