There is a discrepency between the stated vision of the IAM Board regarding the eligibility of people to join the IAM as a member and what the Election Committee tells to people. Can someone in the Election Committee please explain?
The more strict criteria of the Election Committee is now being used to deny IAM Membership to a number of my supporters. At least 2 have complained so far to me, so I would require a prompt explanation, if possible.
I suspect that the Election Committee is not interpreting “a member of the IAM community” as broadly as it was meant by the IAM Board. Among my supporters that are being denied are Mike Rodin, who won the 2018 Ontario Memory Championship this year and Yang Tchew who is a Canadian Memory Championship Board Member and who was on hand this year to help run the 2018 Canadian Memory Championship.
Both are being told that they have to participate in IAM event to be part of the IAM community. This, in my opinion, is clearly not what the IAM Board had in mind to see happening.
