I offered them Cam but they refused. It seems he's not terribly popular with some of them.

Not one of those conditions is stated in the bylaws! What is even more disturbing is for some twit like Terry Carson to be making up the bylaws in order to get rid of me! Whats even more disturbing is the fact Andrew Bennett is President of M.A.T.T.O who given his position on the BOE/AR should be very cognizant of how the bylaws are to obeyed. Do you think he would abuse his position of trust with AATO? I some how doubt it.

Mr. Carson and Mr. Bennett please put your money where your big egos and mouths are and anyone else on the BOE/BOD/lawyer who thinks they can abuse the bylaws. I dare you to show me the bylaws where they state your rights to demand what you have asked for.

Further is Mr. Ron Segal the OAHI legal counsel going to jeoprodize his legal standing by remaining silent given what he already has been informed about given that this email from OAHI is proof positive OAHI has overstepped its own rules?

Also I am concerned there is fraud being covered up within OAHI and that is why the finances are not being given to the members or the board has lied to the OAHI members by stating that the financial info is at Mr. Segals office which they are not.

Notice how they left out the bylaw attachment in their email? I guess they didn't want me reading what my rights are!

Thank you for your email reply dated November 30, 2007 along with the attachments.

I have reviewed the bylaws and cannot find any relevant sections which state or require of me the demands you have made. Perhaps the Board of Examiners, Mr. Segal, or the Board of Director would care to provide the relevant sections of the bylaw or provide the policies which direct or give authority to these demands?

However, I did find section Article 12 (16) Committees, and Article 15 Appeals Committee which grant me the right to appeal. Also Article 19 of the bylaws is an interesting read. Have you read it along with the complete bylaws? I have attached a copy of the OAHI bylaws just in case none of you have ever read them. Are these sections of the bylaw going to be honored or denied placing OAHI in a legally compromised position, open to court review?

May this letter inform you that I wish to exercise my rights as afforded under the bylaws to appeal these decisions which appear to have been made without regard to the bylaws.

Further please note that a Registered Letter will be sent stating my wish to appeal these decisions of the Board of Examiners along
with the requisite $300 fee.

By the way did you deliberately leave out the OAHI bylaws because you did not want me to be aware of how the rules are suppose to be followed or was it just an oversight like the rest of the demands?

An immediate reply is requested as is an explanation for why the bylaws have been grossly and negligently breached.

Thank you.

Raymond Wand RHI No. 00029.

Good for you Raymond .
If a few more members would do as you have done and make a stand then I expect things could soon get back to where they should be .
A good dose of common sense is needed by these directors .
I expect they just might come to their senses and see how much this could cost and OAHI will loose for not following proper procedure and their own bylaws.

...Cookie ... I expect there will be emails flying around the directors today.

They BOD will feel sick going into an election and trying to expain why they have not followed the OAHI by laws.

Well here is one reply from the Chair of the
Admissions Review Committee / Board of Examiners


Andrew Bennett
Terry Carson
Andrew Dixon
Glenn Gogal
Carl D. Inglis
Andrew Radomski
Doug Silverthorn

Quote:
Mr. Wand, first, I am not aware of why I have received this email. Next, from what little of this email I have made time to read, you should read the OAHI act. Specifically 6.
OAHI BOD may pass by-laws.

The rest of this, I do not have time to be bothered with and will not read further communications from Mr. Wand.

To the BOD, if Mr. Wand’s appeal does not have merit, it should be treated as such.

I would not entertain them further.

Regards,

Member of OAHI and CAHPI national.

Quote:
I guess you didn't read Section 6 (3) of Pr 158 nor understand the rights afforded in the bylaws regarding appeals of the BOE/AR decisions.

Pr 158 (3) No by-law is effective until it is ratified
by the voting members of the Association at an
annual, general or special meeting.

These conditions have never been ratified by special meeting or at the AGM.

I suggest you brush up on your rules and regulations. And if you are not aware of what the BOE/AR of which you are a member is up to I suggest you find out and exercise caution in making decision which fall out the perimeters of the bylaws and Pr 158! Thank you for displaying your total lack of due diligence and standard of care.

Thank you for confirming in writing you haven't got a clue whats going on and for demonstrating your incompetence!

I suggest you consult legal council.

Raymond Wand RHI.

For those who care what the truth is, here is PR 158
Bill Prl58
(Chapter Pr65
Stattites of Ontario, 1994)
An Act respecting the
Ontario Association of Home Inspectors

I guess Mr. Bennett is illiterate.
