Seller's Comments and Description:

Before you say why are you using your VK Classifieds system as some form of political platform please let me explain the link.

VK Classifieds (through me), for many years supported the Wireless Institute of Australia both morally and financially – to the tune of approximately $10,000. This financial support eventually ceased as all attempts to get the WIA to directly thank the businesses, whose money they were receiving via VK Classified commercial advertiser donations, fell on deaf ears.

I, Allan Meredith VK2CA, have been a member for almost 20 years and have served both as Awards Manager and as long-term committee member. As mentioned both moral and considerable financial support has been given during this time.

Now the Board of the WIA, I suspect in isolation of its membership, has made the decision and after giving me only two days’ notice to consider formally expelling me from membership of the WIA, immediately and for a minimum period of five years! This meeting of the Board was held at 5pm on Wednesday the 16th of May. As of now, the 17th of May, and with no notice, formal or otherwise received, from the WIA Board I can only reasonably assume that this has happened. They do not even have the courtesy of advising me of the outcome or supplying me with minutes of the meeting.

If I have not been expelled then I demand a full and public apology for this outrageous attack on my reputation and standing within this organisation and AR in general......... read more
