Exactly there is nothing about the value of all "in kind services" 
its great and this should be continued that's the base of any non 
profit organization.

Again i'm not questioning the fact that we put a money value for 
theses donated free of charge services but the fact it is added as a 
money revenue where in fact there was no money exchange at all.

If someone can give any reason why the BOD wants us to believed in 
artificially increased revenue or artificially reducing losses 
instead of stating his own background experience.  I think we can 
from here hope to get real answers instead of futile discussions.

There is some questions ask and with someone who is "using 
experiences from paying Fortune 500 clients)" he should be aware that 
Martha Stewart is also under the fortune 500 and with this background 
he can surely answer on the real issues... 

Does he don't understand the question? i think it is quite impossible 
with this impressive background!

Still awaiting answers?  Should i ask directly naming BOD people?

Ignoring questions and opinions from membership was a trend before is 
this natural tendency is coming back again?
