Re: [ga] 6000+ unique At Large Members?
Richard and all former DNSO GA members,
Indeed Richard you are essentially correct. The ALAC an indirect creature
from the old ALSC has no creditability as to a representation structure
for the stakeholders/users. It is plain and simple a "Trade Association"
without individual stakeholder/user members. The spin that Esther,
Denise, and now Vittorio have been applying in the name of the ALAC
for stakeholders/users individually is a simple canard...
