Langley seniors centre board steps too drastic

Dear Editor,

I was very disappointed at the tone of the special general meeting Tuesday, May 26 held at the Langley Senior Resource Society.

I am one of the group of concerned members, who questioned their actions that appeared to be non-compliant with the bylaws and constitution of the Langley Senior Resource Society.

According to the board, our concern for the centre has put us into the category of bullies for the rest of the meeting. We want the membership to know that our petition, signed by 250 of the membership, asked for a meeting to review the actions of the current board of directors where said actions did not follow the bylaws as listed in the Senior Resource Society Constitution, as well as a review of staffing changes and iniquities during the last six months.

However, the board called the meeting and set the agenda. We were very shocked that they proposed a resolution for the removal of the board. We did not asked for nor did we want such a drastic step as they took.

We are volunteers who have for many years have worked tirelessly for the betterment of the centre and its members.

Jan Scheuerman, Langley
