Re: Improperly Called Meeting

THERE WILL NOT BE A SPECIAL EXECUTIVE [COMMITTEE] MEETING ON FEBRUARY 25, 2005

The Branch administrator must approve all meetings and must be present at all meetings.

The next Executive Committee meeting will be held on March 25, 2005

Approved meeting notices will come from the Branch Secretary and / or Branch President.

Doug Mann, Zach Metoyer and Carol White were and are out of order

THE MINNEAPOLIS BRANCH NAACP CONTINUES TO BE UNDER A NAACP LEVEL II ADMINISTRATORSHIP.

Response by Doug Mann

It is understandable that Mr. Carl L. Breeding does not want members of the branch executive committee to hear a report on findings of the branch's paid consultant from the Management Assistance Program, based on a review of the NAACP branch and Parent Information Center Books. Mr. Breeding replaced the branch president as the authorized representative of the Mpls. branch of the NAACP in a service contract with the state of MN in 2004. Mr. Breeding put his signature under the following statement

GRANTEE certifies that the appropriate person(s) have executed the Grant Contract on behalf of the GRANTEE as required by applicable articles,by-laws, resolutions, or ordinances. [Carl L. Breeding, administrator, 9/29/04]     

Please note that Mr. Breeding's characterization of the special executive committee meeting as "improper" is not substantiated. Mr. Breeding fails to cite facts and specific bylaws to support his characterization of the special meeting as "improperly called."

Mr. Breeding does not, and cannot cite any language in the NAACP constitution and bylaws that states that the administrator must approve and be present at all meetings.

I sent out the mailing myself due to the refusal of the branch secretary to do it.
