RE: [DMCForum] My Official Resignation as DMA Officer

I hope you have a LONG time to hear a LONG story!   Seriously...its just too
much to document in an e-mail or type in an IM
Anyone want to have some beers!?
Here is what I posted to our officer's and Members today (the rest I can
explain some other time if you have interest):
---- Original Message --------
To whom it may concern:
It greatly upsets me to have to make this announcement, but effective
immediately I will be stepping down in my roles and obligations to the DMA
as an officer and technical lead (website).
Recent events have taken place that I (personally) felt were created and
carried out without the best interest of the club in mind.  When I asked for
the FACTS used to make these decisions/actions, I was not provided any proof
(at all).  This later lead me to believe that the basis on these decisions
themselves were NOT in the MEMBER'S best interest, but were based on the
self interest of parties involved.  Repeated attempts to ask for
clarification on facts used to make the decision resulted in scathing
accusations that I (Kevin Abato) "own the club", wish to "take it over
completely", am childish, selfish, and "want only for myself" (A viewpoint
that I am sure many of you can attest to based on my level of participation
in the club to make it better/larger for all of us in the past 4 years)
While it is true that (on paper) I handle many of the club's assets and
services (treasury, website, etc).   This has been the case for some time
now.  *IF* I had any such reason to take over and proclaim my absolute power
over the club I could have done it long ago.   I have no reason or interest
to do so.  If anything at all I have pushed to grow this club larger, invite
more people, and have them participate as well.  The club is about ALL OF
I have outlined a plan to the DMA officers to conclude my divestment from
the club assets and services under my management which will be carried out
I feel that I bring a lot to this club, and was caught in a personal
contradiction for the past few days in order to make this decision.   My act
of leaving office will more then likely have an effect on the
club...possibly bad.  So now I am in essence acting outside of the best
interest of the members.   I struggled with this decision for some time
until I realized something.  I have always put the club first, but this is
really about me, and how I feel.  I do not feel your best interests are in
mind, or that decisions are being made ethically.
I no longer feel that I should continue to participate in the club as an
officer (but will continue to be a member and attend events).   I see recent
events as being biased, a conflict of interest, and not serving YOUR best
interests.   I am sorry to anyone who feels that I am wrong in taking this
stance, and some have even said that by stepping down "said parties" will
claim victory.   I have personally put tremendous time and effort to
transform and grow this club in the past 4 years to make it something great
for all of us, and it upsets me to leave all of that (and the potential we
still have) behind.
Perhaps in the future I will run again for a club officer position, but in
the meantime I will be happy to attend events as a member.  Thank you all
for your support, encouragement, help and everything else you have given me
in the past years.   Cheryl and I consider many of you to be close friends
and even family.  
Thank you
Kevin Abato
