OMG: I, for one, am incredibly pissed off about this:

http://uwimprint.ca/article/4724-special-board-meeting-information-non-existent-on

I can get over the colossal issue of transparency and openness at Board meetings. I can get over the lack of information and inability to access the information. Those are both big issues, but not the biggest problems.

My biggest problem is with the way it has been handled by the Executive at FEDS. The Vice-President of Internal took zero responsibility for this even though it is clearly his fault. Marketing should not be blamed for this, he should be. And the President has 'pledged to improve transparency'? Seriously? THEN DO IT. Maybe start by opening up the Board of Directors so that this sort of thing is at least open to the public. But come on, there are so many things that they can do, and to pledge twice and not do anything is a slap in the face to students.

They have both fucked up. Now they just need to take responsibility for it.

  1. How big of a Milhouse do you have to be to actually care about this shit?

    1. There's nothing wrong with wanting Feds to be accountable.

      In fact, if more of us did then maybe Feds could be a better organization that does what we (its shareholders) want.

    2. It is too bad that all the people that seem to be involved in Feds are horribly incompetent (looking at you Feds Executives).

      Even if they wanted to make Feds more accountable and transparent, they hardly have the mental capacity to do so.

  2. I think Feds is a joke. It should be scrapped and replaced by a dictatorship. How many Feds does it take to screw in a lightbulb in the SLC? All of them.

    1. Fuck Feds, what value do they ACTUALLY give us for the $200+ we pay them EVERY TERM

      I wish I could get my money back and spend it on textbooks or some shit that is ACTUALLY WORTH IT

  3. Yeah OP, I hear ya. It was pretty cheap of the VP Internal (who is secretary of the board, and therefore responsible for taking the minutes and ensuring they're published in an appropriate and timely fashion) to try to deflect blame onto another group within Feds.

    It's his job; the buck stops with him. A good manager doesn't blame his subordinates publicly when things aren't done right.

    1. Actually, the VPInternal isn't acting as the Secretary these days either - he didn't want to keep doing it, so he chose somebody else to take minutes for the Board.

      But it is still his fault, not the new Secretarys. It has always been his job to get it to Marketing on time, and he didn't do it.

    2. 3a, last I checked, the bylaws name the VPIN as the Secretary for the Board. If somebody else is taking minutes, that's fine - but he's still responsible for making sure they're accurate, complete, and published in a timely manner.

      It's a shame; the execs seem more concerned with convincing us that this issue isn't their fault, rather than just saying "we apologize, we're looking into this" and fixing it.
