>> As a board member, I am well aware of what transpired.

By reading your public message, NO, you were not told accurately what occurred. 
You were not told of all the content of an hour-plus phone interrogation by an 
AMSAT-NA appointee and what was discussed. And I did not see you CC'd in 
those email messages from the board president.

Your current board president has no clue as to the value of what many volunteers 
were doing on behalf of AMSAT-NA. There are at least four devoted, fervent, 
dedicated advocates of AMSAT-NA that have been turned off and dismissed by 
this "criteria" that has popped up. Some have been told to alter their presentations. 

You have a board president who wrote, after being advised that AMSAT-NA was 
cited in CQ magazine a couple of times in my articles, that " ... AMSAT-NA's mention 
in magazine articles is the relative value of published articles diminishes over time ... "

Those are words of someone who has no clue as to the power of the Internet. You 
cannot BUY the type of marketing and positive exposure that I have given AMSAT-NA 
the past eight years.

As I wrote in January at ... http://www.work-sat.com/2014.html ...

I doubt that any AMSAT-NA leaders could name ANY OTHER volunteer who has 
promoted the organization as often and as fervently as have I ... yet this 
well-documented history of promotion - worth many thousands of dollars in ANY 
public-relations professional’s portfolio - through my time and efforts has been 
judged as “lacking” by the current leadership of AMSAT-NA.
